No Flea Market


The County Fair is going on the next few weeks and the flea market space is needed for parking for all the fair goers.  So I will miss out on seeing great items to buy such as these for awhile.

I used to watch this character on TV when I was a little guy.  He was weird and he bothered me, but I hung in there just for the cartoons.  To this day I'm still not all that fond of clowns.  
They're just plain creepy.

A real collectible direct from Gilligan's Island.

  3. I've never been to the flea market in Santa Rosa - perhaps I should start going there - after the County Fair.
    I find clowns creepy as well. I never really liked them, not even as a child.

  5. Clowns are OK as long as they don't stand for political office.

  6. I used to like the clowns at the circus. Not so sure about the comics clowns though.

  9. Ya, I remember watching Bozo. Never a big fan, but they don't really freak me out either. Interesting how the character became a part of pop culture and even our language... as in "what a bozo!".

  10. Yeah, Bozo was a little freaky.

  11. I've never liked clowns. The whole idea of covering up one's identity with make-up makes me suspicious. John Wayne Gacey was a clown and serial murderer. It creeps me out.

  12. Clowns have never been popular with me...just never have thought they were funny.

  14. The Bozo cartoon wasn't bad, but I remember the black and white tv show. He looked like a drunk mean guy.
