Another great decorative collectible category is vintage and antique games. I particularly love table top "bagatelle" games which were a sort of precursor to pinball machines. You would prop the game up at an angle and play it with glass marbles. These games also make striking wall decor- especially a collection of them. They are fairly difficult to find. The one pictured here was made in NYC and has fantastic art deco graphics depicting an urban/industrial landscape. It is in good working order ( I have had some fun playing it) and even has some of the original box. I will be bringing it to the flea in Williamsburg this coming Sunday with a $75 price tag.
