Bob, on FB you are asking about Arthur Taylor. Is this the guy? http://www.atlanticsalmonmuseum.com/id37.html

I assume you would of seen this, but maybe not. Are yours original paintings or signed prints?

Yea thats the guy. I have 4 signed prints 2 are labeled Artist Proof the other two are numbered 367/400 and 24/400. The Proofs are labeled High Tide at Duck trap, Dickens pool at Day break, the other ones are titled too. All Salmon fishing places. They were hanging at my fathers house when we cleaned it out. Nobody wanted any of the art work. I got some Sabra Feilds too.

Funny thing. I went and looked at ebay to see what sabra field's stuff was selling for. Not bad, and quite a bit of her art does sell. I was a little surprised. Sell sell....... I don't really like her stuff, too simplistic, all away around.

Not much else on the net. He just died and that usually means prices go up since he is not making anymore art. Its interesting I cant find his catalog , no reference to the titles.

I just sold 4 wheels and tires for a Subaru to that guy who owns the Monster Boat from Waterbury Res. He is a funny guy, he bought a motor from Jon. Not sure he likes that motor. He pans for gold too.

What an great day out. I burned a giant pile of brush while I cut wood. Then I worked on cars with the music blasting.

Jon's good at selling junk for profit. I'll never forget the lawn sale Tim had at his old place on North Ave. We all sold stuff including Jon. Tim and I actually had some decent stuff to sell, but Jon outdid us by getting top dollar for broken down, rusted out parts and a beat up riding lawn mower for way more than it was worth. He does know how to bs the customer.

Those boys that showed up last year at BW were most excellent examples of Vermont rednecks. Classic stuff.

Bob, be sure to post a few pics of you being a Lackey down in Brimfield. I want proof, you are actually working at selling and not just buying more shit to bring home. Got that?

Only you Bob, would post a pic from an "adventure", of a broken down Ford van. Erik must have AAA.

So how much money did you bring? I can do basic math, so was going to figure that one out. We need a summary of sorts. I am interested in going to Brimfield some year, I bet it's wild.

The Waterbury flea is pretty sad these days.

didnt need to use my AAA, road side truck service $110/hr on mothers day. cost $500 two water pumps and took them 7 hours including the time it took to chase down another pump.  Bob was an excellent lackey. He has been promoted to helper instead of lackey. we had great weather. selling was very good but not excellent. next show?

Bob's first pick today. Yard sale find in Hanksville. 20 bucks gets me 100 or more back if I am lucky. Its a German Railway Switch lamp, oil fired. One on Ebay for 175 right now but its bid less. Joe I came back with twice the cash that I went with. IT was an experience, I feel like an intern. The market for that show is interesting and perhaps a little flicked. Toys we played with as kids are collectible. Old cloths, Architectural bits, some glass, film camera stuff (quality) sold. Skis and Snowshoes were not moving. Cast Iron was slow too, one wood stove went but many other things you might think would go didn't. I only brought a few things and sold about half.  Eric has a huge inventory which is what we sold. Its a big logistical operation moving 10,000 pounds plus of inventory, truck, trailer and people. Very hard work for an office boy. Fun though, I liked talking to the customers. We were moving at 5am and didn't stop till 5 or 6pm.DSC03692.JPG

This is interesting. Its a print from Miguel Covarrubias. I have had it for 25 years, paid 2 bucks for it  in the old North End at a yard sale. Its a map of the USA with cartoons depicting regional activities.

Bob,  that map has always been the focal point in the living room. It's worth some decent money, nice condition helps.

Yea not sure how to sell it or if I should. I sent a picture to the gallery that sold the same one. They more then likely will not even respond.

Honesty is an annoying trait. Drives Bullshitters crazy.

I got to work outside today despite the dire forcast. Got the green Audi aligned, Brought the chicken house up from the motor pool and put a new floor in it. Then I put roof tin on the floor. My 20 birds have tripled in size and need to get out of the brooder. I also messed with Dylan's monster truck. Put a battery in it, dumped some brake fluid in the master cylinder and took it up back. Ran outa gas and had to go get some. This is a 1990ish Toyota with 33in tires on it. It goes pretty good in low range.

Well we went to the Lincoln Town yard sale and found some deals. While they are not huge money makers they were pretty good deals.

I got a small Chain saw for 5 bucks. I put gas in it and it started. Its even sharp.

Then I bought a bike for 5 bucks. I pumped the tires up and road it around my yard. It goes and stops. 5 bucks and it has a seat that Jon would love. 
lys2.jpg 

Then I bought a classical guitar for 5 bucks that was in perfect condition pretty much. I took it home and was able to tune it and its action was pretty respectable. A case too.lys4.jpg 

Then I found a compost twister thing for .25 cents. I kid you not, 25 cents.
lys3.jpg 

I also found a nice Mthardware coat in percet condition for 5 bucks. I bought 6 sections of metal Bestos chimney with several thruwall parts and some angles for 10 bucks. I got a really cool old rug and a working Coleman lantern for 3 bucks. The rug is really small but very tight weave, looks hand done. lys5.jpg 

We filled the van with junk in a few hours. We did have a visit from someone at our house. I have not down loaded the digital images from the remote cameras but I did get this clue.

We also got this original final state proof from Cynthia Price for 5 bucks too. Not sure what that means but its a nice image. lys6.jpg
Our chickens are happy.

I also got a great Burton snow boarding suit. Pants and coat for a 10-12 year old boy. Mint condition cool colors 10 bucks. Then I found a Mountain Hardware coat for 5 bucks that fits me. New condition.

I also found a bunch of silly stupid cheap things. Two working shop lights for a dollar. These are 4 foot lights that just need to be plugged in and hung. I got 3 excellent clamps for wood. Cast Iron old clamps with a good 20 inch range for 50 cents each. A really cool old Coleman cooler from the 60s metal in great shape for $3.25.  That was a battle from 5 bucks tooDSC03713.JPG  I got this brand new thermos for 50 cents. Never used in the original box. I bought two thermoses from Outdoor gear exchange for 50 bucks last year. What a nimrod. I saw three or four others in similar condition today all cheap.
