A Big Ol' Welded Up Bird In The Hand Beats Two At The Green Shag Market. Status: Available Now!
The "Bird Man" - Carl Perkins (no, not THAT Carl Perkins) not only sells at the Gypsy Caravan (what? You missed him there? I did too. I heard he got a lousy spot in the parking garage selling area) he also has a few Birds hanging around at the Green Shag Market. Now you can drop by and peruse his wares at your convenience...and not under that scorching summer sun!
Some day I'm gonna get me a welder and try this out. I'd love to weld me up some modern art
for the yard. Some big stuff. If your tastes are for more reasonably sized folk art type items then
you should stop by the Green Shag Market and check out the "Bird Man's" birds. They're so
clever in their use of discarded items that have obviously done their prescribed duty. A new life
for the old.
Owls, Toucans, Humming Birds...Big Crazy birds on big chrome perches, Mr. Perkins has a keen
eye and sense of humor. I wish I would have been able to get better photos of these pieces. They
really need a less cluttered environment to be truly appreciated in photos. See any that you just
can't live without?
