You may recall the story behind how this blog got its name – basically, I found a sad little metal cowboy buried amongst many other items on a table at a flea market and just had to “rescue” what I thought was a sad and lost item. Anyway, that was the inspiration for what has now been a five year endeavor.

Well, as I mentioned the other day, I made a trip to the Todd Farm Antiques & Flea Market in Rowley, MA this past weekend. I was minding my own business and examining the wares offered for sale when I was put in the same position I found myself all those years ago when I found my first Lost Cowboy… I spotted this little guy among a bunch of other smalls and knew I just had to rescue him.
