We Love Flea Markets

We Love Flea Markets.

Nowadays there are a lot of flea markets in every city; maybe it reflects the surplus production of our times a little bit…Anyway, luckily not everybody throws everything into the rubbish bin when it’s not needed any more. There might be someone out there, who could appreciate it again. It’s then either given to charity or church flea markets where the bargain hunter can browse through things. It’s a great feeling to find a nice piece of which you didn’t even know you always wanted to have it…

Many things on flea markets can be used again. Of course it’s not everybody’s cup of tea to wear used clothes, but many things are almost new and a minute worth the consideration. On flea markets you buy individuality and many people who skim through them don’t do it because of financial reasons but as I said, individualism. You want to find that special chair or that exquisite looking lamp that nobody else has. You maybe want to do a bit of (self) renovation. So start with a chair, paint it, make it unique and you’ll be rewarded with your own design.

We were at a flea market this weekend and found a couple of books, cloths & two chairs. Here are some impressions:

  1. I love the old keyboard! You’re so right, skimming through fleamarkets means browsing for individualism!

  2. Thanks for your comment. Oh and by the way: I took the photos with my new Canon Eos 5D Mark II and I think they turned out quite well ;)
