This is why flea markets are amazing, and we’re not talking about those hipsterized flea markets. We mean ones where you can still get tattoos and VCRs and Nazi memorabilia. The kind has a booth that just sells flags. Because every so often, there’s gold hidden amongst the weirdness. Via Cool Hunting:
Lauren White and George Augusto recently unveiled “Found”—a set of never-before-seen photos of the Rolling Stones on a road trip through Savannah, Georgia and Clearwater, Florida in 1965—at LA’sDilettante Gallery. The 23 candid, intimate images were lost in a box that eventually made its way to a flea market in Saugus, California, where White discovered them. The series speaks volumes about an era that saw the birth of rock ‘n’ roll, and offers a rare glimpse of the band’s formative days. We talked to White to get the backstory.
Oh man, that just makes us want to get up early this weekend and go flea market treasure hunting.
