IT’S ALWAYS FUN TO FIND SOMETHING WORTH taking home at a flea market. Better yet, it’s good to find something quite outside the ordinary where a creative act has taken place. My friend, photographer and raconteur Francois Robert, spotted these stamp constructions a year or so ago at a flea market. Apparently, someone was moved to recycle a collection of used postage stamps—the impetus for many a folk artist throughout history. Whether it be a few hundred bottle caps, popsicle sticks, old sewing spools, soft drink pop tops—whatever— if there are a lot of something, creative people will often find a way to put the objects to use.
