I love exploring flea markets! Look at what I found this time: a soil test kit that can probably be dated back to the 50′s and 60′s. This kit can test for nitrogen, phosphorus, potash, and pH. I’m glad the kits today can fit in my pocket.
I found this manga that I bought at a flea market a couple years ago. I have no idea what’s going on in it, but I just couldn’t help myself. One day I might even make an actually decent redraw of some panels
So I went to the flea market at the NC fair grounds yesterday and in the cast iron section I found this. Now it’s not unusual to see black face folk art at the flea market but this was the first time that I saw something with the word nigger on it. What was really uneasy for me was the fact that people walked by it as if it were nothing. Someone thought that it was okay to sell this. White children picking these things up and laughing at them as their parents look on with a smile. Black families avoiding the area altogether. I am disgusted. I thought that I would never see something like this in Raleigh, North Carolina but I guess I was wrong
