Flea Market Fidos: The Dish on Dog Junk and Canine Collectiblesby Barri Leiner, Marie Moss
Just rescued a Lucy Dawson book/i>
Flea Market Fidos is a first of its kind guide to hunting down canine collectibles and giving them pride of place in your home. From paint-by-number terriers to Diana Thorne dog drawings, this irresistibly illustrated volume offers inspiration and information for both first time collectors and serious dog devotees alike.
Just rescued a Lucy Dawson book of pup art? Think that sawdust stuffed spaniel might be a Steiff? Need to sniff out tips for displaying your dog treats and treasures? There's no need to beg for answers with Flea Market Fidos on the prowl.
Canine categories are illustrated with 200 flea market photos and include Puppy Love (a litter of lovable dog collectibles for children), Pup Art (puppy paintings and dog drawings), Ruff Stuff (stuffed dogs of every breed), Paper Trained (ephermera finds), and Real Tails (a celebration of the loyal road trip rovers who accompany their owners on junking journeys). Readers will also be delighted by Go Fetch, a comprehensive resource guide of the best shops, websites, flea markets, and antique malls in both the United States and abroad.
Authors and best friends Leiner and Moss have spent almost twenty years searching the world for canine treasures, discovering and photographing litter after vintage litter of flea market fidos -- and defining the breed along the way.
