I bough this at the Wellfleet Drive-In flea market. Not as large scale as it is in the summer but still plenty of booths to check out. I found this for $10.00 and plan to use it as a wall hanging in a room that I have been collaging with all sorts of stuff.

It’s in gorgeous shape but a tiny part of the label is worn off right in the middle of the name.

The label.

Looking underneath.

    This one’s a honey. And even with the label ripped it’s still gorgeous with that musical notes sash embellishing the wings.

    I love xylophones. When I first stared songwriting i couldn’t afford a piano so bought a xylophone and played it with thimbles on my fingers. It was an excellent traveling musician companion too. So I’ve always loved these. Nothing adds sparkle to a track like a xylophone.
