Recently on one of our Sabbath treks we stopped at a flea market and parked out back…
Like hidden object tasks? You will have to click the photo to find: a potted plant, tire, old spray can, three leering skeleton faces, a roll of barbed wire, a cactus, a child’s face laying in the grass (hard), two BBQ grates, and what would appear to be the skeleton of a baby… ew?
In retrospect, I think we were taking our lives into our hands by even entering this place. That aside, we poked around a bit and decided that if we stayed we might actually pick up a flea or two! So we left, but not before asking what it was originally.
In the very early 1900s it was a bar. OH… yes I thought, there was that one little 10 by 14 room deep in the center of the building. And sure enough, it did have a counter with what I had thought was a display case behind it… Certainly the configuration would make it a bar in its former existence!
Yup, that made sense, but the rest of the place made Sarah Winchester look positively brilliant by comparison.
NOTE: If you have never heard of, or been to, the Winchester Mansion in San Jose, California, then please take a look by clicking on her name above. The official website tells a bit of the intriguing tale about the Heiress’ of the Winchester Rifle fortune, and the video below will help to clarify my last comment! 😉
Here for your viewing pleasure is a silly, but interesting video tour of the Winchester Mansion.
