Search your memory banks to recall that Fleatiquing has become one of my hobby/pass times. It has evolved into a fun and interesting “away time,” that has not only filled the booth (called Coco’s) with things for sale, but has also brought some decidedly quirky items into my personal collection. Nothing to take to the Antiques Road Show, but, small keepsakes that bring a smile to my face when I see them sitting on my shelf. These are a few of the things, I have bought for about $1:
The ’60’s vase:
The Owl Plate. His eyes hold dip:
The “I Love Paris” French Gendarme Bank for my “found money.” (That’s my annual collection of change I find in the street from January-December.)

There are a few more examples, but I think you get the drift. Nothing elaborate. Each is just funky enough to catch my eye.
