Betty Boop @ Red Barn Flea Market



Betty Boop is regarded as one of the first and most famous sex symbols on the animated screen. Created by Max Fleischer in 1930
I found this one at the Red Barn Flea Market Saturday

There are many video's of the cartoons of Betty Boop on Youtube


During the Winter months we stay away from this giant flea market because of the influx of winter visitors from the frozen north.



While wandering the aisles with my hubby, a man stopped us and said "I have never been here before" and pointing at the produce we were buying, he said "is this the only produce here?"
I explained there were many others and where and as he walked away, 
Bob said...." Damn Yankee"
and we both burst into giggles when I said
"the pot calling the kettle black'

Because I am married to a damn Yankee... my grand mother said the difference between a Yankee and a Damn Yankee is the Yankees go home...
Get it? Bob came in 1970 and STAYED.

you know I had to PicMonkey with the photo

I love her! And she is even on skates serving food! I think Betty loves to hang at Antique malls and flea markets. There is one here at an antique shop, but she is so beat up. I have never seen one in better shape or prettier than yours.

LOL! Too funny...my BFF is nicknamed Betty Boop AND when we went to VA, while conducting a training class, a teller was being every disruptive. So I asked her to share what she wa giggling about. It was the same joke about what a damn Yankee was! I slaughed and said, "well, I guess I'm a damn Yankee because I'm staying!" She never interrupted another class...:)JP

Ann Thompson said...

This Yankee is giggling over your conversation and the difference between a Yankee and a Dam Yankee.

Chatty Crone said...
