When I asked them why, they said they meet a lot of other people from our town that notice them because of their high school and town name. People who don't even know them, will introduce themselves because they're from the same town and usually start talking about our High School baseball team and high school sports in general.
Last summer, we found another reason for wearing your school name big and proud.
As Matt was walking the market isles, he heard "Hey New Canaan!" and turned, and a very observant seller beckoned him closer. The seller showed him an old glass milk bottle with our town's name on it.
Matt found me and excitedly explained that he had an unbelievable treasure to show me.
The old milk bottle is from a dairy farm that used to be in our town. I'm sure the very smart and observant seller sold it to us at a higher price, knowing he had sentimental buyers standing in front of him.
But this was a cool buy - a very cool buy . . .
and speaking of flea markets, I have a little tutorial over at the JBS Inspiration blog on turning an old washboard into an inspiration/memo board.
