Thirfting can be fun. I’ve taken to my local community thrift store’s auctions which happen twice a month at Mrs. Huizenga on Roncesvalles.
A box of unmarked photos of the Rolling Stones were found at a flea market in Saugus, California where thirfter Lauren White found them.
White stated in an interview with Cool Hunting:
“I feel lucky. I really didn’t expect to find them at a flea market. Basically, a guy who runs one of the stands called me over because I “looked like I would like rock ‘n’ roll”—and he was right. I don’t know what was lost in translation, however. He obviously didn’t know what he had. To tell the truth, I didn’t either. I obviously knew it was the Stones, but it took about a week of looking them over to realize that this was really a very unique circumstance. After extensive research, I came to find that these are unpublished, never-before-seen photos of one of the most legendary bands in rock ‘n’ roll history. Not only that, they are beautifully composed, candid, raw and perfect in every way. They really convey a band innocent to their destiny.”
