Some Favorite Rumrill Vases Available Today at the Long Beach Antique Market

We all have our favorites.  From early on beginning in grade school we witnessed the concept of the chosen few in witnessing or being the “teacher’s pet”.  Certain bonuses or advantages were awarded ones that attained that role and we learned to apply that concept in many areas of our lives.

Even in collecting pottery we apply the “teacher’s pet” principle to the items in our collection we value the most by rewarding them the most visible display shelf. For me a few of my Rumrill vases have become “teacher’s pet and they proudly great visitors to my home in a most conspicuous place of honor.

Three Rumrill vases, c. 1938-42 (from left to right) 9″ Pale Blue Art Deco Vase, mold # H-8, $ 75.00; Miniature 4.25″ Vase with Partial Original Label, mold #A-5, $ 45.00; and 6″ Fan Five Finger Bud Vase from “Manhattan Group”, mold # 541, $100.00 SOLD

Today at the Long Beach Antique Market we will be offering some of our very favorite Rumrill vases and yes they will be displayed in a very prominent location. The Long Beach Antique Market  is held in the Veteran’s Stadium parking lot just off Lakewood Boulevard at Conant Street and is open from 6:00 AM until 2:00 PM. (Visit the Long Beach Antique Market website for a discount entrance fee coupon.)  We are in space #A853, look for our familiar green and white tent.

This Time Mother Nature Wins! Threat of Heavy Rain & Strong Winds Keep Us from the Long Beach Flea Market Tomorrow, March 18th.

Laguna Niguel is blanketed in fog and drenched with rain on Saturday, March 17th. The forecast calls for more of the same on Flea Market Sunday.

As many of our loyal customers and fans know, we look forward to working the monthly Long Beach Flea Market. It has always been our favorite event as in the past five years we have not only met wonderful clients and assisted them in building their pottery collections, but we have also developed many cherished friendships.

In the last six months Mother Nature seems to have decided that the third Sunday of every month is a wonderful time for the skies to open up and drench the pavement at Veteran’s Stadium in Long Beach. Sometimes her threats have turned out to be just that (like last month – a finer February Sunday does not exist) and other times we have found ourselves standing in three inch puddles of water with wind driven rain finding new and creative angles to fall from the sky. (Anyone  remember this past November 20th? Well at least all of our vases, plates and candle holders were washed clean; pass the Dawn Detergent!)

"...the skies to open up and drench the pavement at Veteran's Stadium in Long Beach."

Most of the time we take Ma Nature’s threats and the TV Weather Persons promises of ….BREAKING NEWS…..The Storm of 2012 to Hit the Southland on Flea Market Sunday…in stride and usually give it the ole’ College try and set up shop under the drizzle and threatening skies.  But somehow this threat seems real and as much as we hate to give in to the hocus-pocus of weather prediction we have decided that we will not be at tomorrow’s Long Beach Flea Market.

One of our Aleppo Pine trees during a short break in today's storm.

Now for some good news.  Since the weather will keep us from setting up shop in Long Beach tomorrow, we are going to launch our first Virtual Flea Market at this website tomorrow morning beginning at 7:00 AM. We will offer to you all of the new acquisitions we have purchased for tomorrow’s event here at BillyBlueEye.com. Additionally all merchandise offered tomorrow will be available for purchase at 25% off the ticketed price and we’ll professionally box and ship the items free of charge!

So set you clocks, Pottery fans. No need to pull out the yellow slicker or grab the galoshes, come shop Billy Blue Eye’s Virtual Flea Market from the comfort and warmth of your dry home tomorrow morning. More information will be posted later today as well as advance postings of some of the terrific treasures we will be offering. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
