(1a) This cat has great taste in colour (and he seems to have a tyre fetish). He also rides in and about Richmond, London which is the penultimate in neatness since I occasionally travel there.

(3) Boutique boom: From Bobbin to Voltage – Making and selling bikes used to be simple and unimaginative. Today businesses are changing to access a vibrant market for boutique brands.

(4) Ran errands (post office) on Saturday using my hand-built orange basket bike from ANT Bicycles. Trip ended @ Chef’s Table for Potstickers.

Other Stuff
(5) Spent last Sunday at the Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, Connecticut and found some treasures!

(5a) Lindsey’s Quality Water Colors – Manufactured by the Glenn Tint & Chem. Co., in Glenside, PA (NO. 25 – 8 Colors). The print on the tin is very colorful (and the price imprinted on the the lid is 39Ā¢). The patent date is December 8, 1931. I tried to find the the original patent but there are 1,142 listed on that date (need an intern).
