Cool Finds : Alameda

Alameda flea market was a bit less crowded this month. Fourth of July weekend must have had something to do with it. That didn't stop us from finding something to take away. This pair of flour sack bag fronts are silkscreened to perfection! The rooster one is my favorite and might even have a bit of letterpress action as there is a faint hint of of an "impression" on the backside. They are just simply two beautiful examples of an attention to packaging detail that we cherish.
