No 12. - cover is actually a polka dots plastic bag! Not easy to find good old vintage papers in fleas here. As the fleas here mostly sells old clothings and cds, etc. Even my fav thieves market here are fading away due to land development. why the name? "thieves brought their stolen goods to sell" or so goes the story, the rag-and-bone man now brings his collection to sell to make a few extra dollars. 
they have everything under the sun, and fun!

A Collection a Day by Lisa Congdon.
a great book and great collections of things:)


In 2010, Lisa Congdon embarked on a year-long project: a daily documentation through photos and the occasional drawing of arrangements from her curious collections. “Most of the collections are real and exist in my home or studio; those I will photograph. Some are imagined; those I will draw or (occasionally) paint.”
