While in Puebla recently, I visited what is known as Alley of the Frogs where on the weekend, people bring their items to sell on the square. While not there on the weekend, I did visit some of the permanent shops and found a few items for my assemblages. And in Mexico City, every Saturday at the San Angel Market, artists display their work in two of the squares. There is a small place for vendors as well where I found a few crusty items. Unfortunately, I was unable to go to the Mercado de Antiguedades de la Lagunilla on Paseo de la Reforma where I was told you could find even more. It’s open every Sunday. When you look at some of the pictures, I am REALLY sorry I didn’t get to go there. Jorge and Craig, next trip, okay?
Here is my first assemblage using some of my found objects. The title, Go for a Spin, Big Boy? The base is a wooden cigar box which I covered with a picture frame. The finished size is 9″x7″.
