A few weeks ago, I wrote about the first model horse I found "in the wild" at the old Lakewood flea market south of Atlanta. I had so much fun reminiscing about it with my parents and sister that I thought I'd share some more of our finds. Most of what we picked up over the years there was fairly mundane, but we had many gaps to fill in our collection then and the prices were usually good. A number of our vintage glossies were found at Lakewood including probably half a dozen sets of glossy palomino Family Arabians (they were all different shades, what could we do).
We also found some rather spectacular rarities. Most of these were purchased for less than $30, but this was of course well-before eBay and the internet were really a thing. The first two horses pictured here---the Proud Arabian Mare grooming kit and Fury with the paper saddle---were actually picked up at Lakewood by a friend of ours, but we later bought them from her, so I'm including them here because they're so cool. Enjoy!
