|Small Sample of Found-Fashion Hats.|
Found Fashion exalts the joy of happy accident. For those less committed or less accomplished, Found Fashion can be combined with retail elements. Sun-block clothing in pastel colors or frantic prints and stark shadow-man black wetsuit neoprene offer suitable, though compromising, contrasts for genuine Found Fashion treasures.
Found Fashion is wearable Found Art. For the detectorist, it is a natural. Of course detetected watches, rings and other metallic found items can be worn. but there are also non-metallic finds such as hats, gloves, foot wear and even shirts and hoodies.
In the picture at the top of the post you see a small sample of the hats that I have found. I wear the ones that fit from time to time. Hats are one of the first things people lose on a beach or when out in a boat. I have a good collection. They frequently are found at the water line. Of coursed I clean them before using them, but they do come in handy.
Found fashion is also a type of recycling. There is just something I like about finding things that can be used. (By the way, the bench in the picture is made from found boards and wood left over from trimmed trees.)
I like the variety of Found Fashion. It doesn't drain your pocket, and you never know what you might find. If you keep your eyes open, you'll find a large variety. You'll likely be able to find hats representing sports teams, companies, and different areas of the country. You might see me wearing a hat from Hawaii, Chicago, or San Francisco on any given day. I've been to some of those places, but never bought a hat there.
Found Fashion is a post-retail clashing cacophony of color and style that startles and surprises the senses and challenges the pre-apocalyptic order-seeking mind. It is a statement of laissz-faire that screams, "Let the universe decide and provide."
I hope the whimsy didn't obscure the message today. I've done this so consistently over a such long period of time that occasionally I feel like doing something a little off the wall.
|Found Copper Thunderbird.|
A piece of a medicine bottle possibly from the lost colony was found.
Here is the link.
I'm still working on the post about the movement of sand and shells. It is complicated and I am trying to make it as clear and concise as I can.
I don't feel like doing any more today. Hopefully if you didn't find this post helpful, maybe you at least found it a tad amusing.
We have a smooth surf, hot weather and no tropical activity of any interest.
