Music geek note: The cover of The Cramps “Blues Fix” features a photo of Poison Ivy listening to records on a Cobra-matic.

Tim bought a record player full of tubes for $5. It makes an awesome warm humming crackling sound when plugged in. He’s not entirely sure what he’s going to do with it yet.

I got a very cool leather jacket for $8, but I’m not ready to share photos yet. Watch for a fall outfit post.

There were some vendors with a ton of old magazine covers and photos of ’40s actresses as well….something to look for again next time!
