The Girlfriend Threw Down The Gauntlet When I First Passed On This Tripot Ashtray The Girlfriend Was Apalled At My Lack Of Vision. Then I Shocked Her Again By Buying A Disgusting Chemex Coffee Maker! Status: Flea Finds.
Both of these items today were purchased at the Flea...but different Fleas. The Ashtray Stand - Belleville, the Chemex - Wentzville. Both are kind of a mess...but that's kind of par for the course with the Flea Markets!
Yeah, the Girlfriend thought for sure I should buy this and drop it off in the booth at The Green Shag
Market. I wasn't (and am not) convinced. It looks a little too "Farm Fresh" for my comfort, but she
was insistent and I took that as a challenge! So in the booth it will go and we will see what happens.
It's Certainly cool looking and I was immediately drawn to it at the Flea. We'll see how it goes!
This taller Chemex coffee carafe / maker was plucked from the Wentzville Flea a few weeks ago.
It's a serious mess and I haven't done any cleanup on it at all. It won't take much work to get it
spotless...it IS glass. The weird thing is that it's taller than my other Chemex. I haven't done much
research on these so, does anybody know anything about that?
