It's not that we don't appreciate the finer side of collecting, but there's something oh-so-satisfying about digging through a pile of possible discards and pulling out that perfect chair in need of a quick scrape-down and a coat of spray paint. You following us here? Good. Then you best hustle on over to our new favorite corner hangout: the San Pablo Flea Market.

The best part of this place, other than the fantastically good-natured owner, Claude and his sister, is that it's open daily. That's right. You can scope out deals, and there are many to be seen, whenever you please.

The goods range from severely tattered to mildly worn but if you're in to salvaging, and a bit clever with the tools, you can snag yourself some pretty sweet deals.

We didn't bother to haggle for our $.50 spoon rest, but we got the feeling bargaining is welcome.

We're especially fond of the massive lab tables stacked out back and large collection of lab bottles....not so keen on the creepy yellow storage containers with ventilation slots...

Oh, and we almost forgot to mention that if you're local, Claude will deliver!
