Flea Market Kick Off


Finally!!! After a long cold winter, you finally see the spring arriving... and with it comes the flea markets! Today was my first one of the season. Me and my ma went all hyped up... treasure hunting...
It's always a bet wether or not there will be any good stuff for us to haul home... Sometimes you get dissapointed... But today we sure didnt! Right away we hit jackpot... when we spotted two wonderflul ornated side tables... two in a pair.. one for me... and one for ma!!! :)
I am gonna paint mine, mostly because it has allready had bad painjob of kinds. Ma's was still in its original dark wood. So she is keeping hers as it is.... And it looks great next to my sofa!!!! Hurray!!! Exactly what I was looking for....But we found more... Soooo much more.... Just have a looksie!

Cute Figgjo plates... 5nok each... I bought two :)


A brass lamp... which will be done over of course :) I am seeing silver soon :) :) :) and with a pretty shade... I think I might have something... 30nok for this one...
A side table/cabinet!!! With some paint and a knew knob... it will be brilliant... It is going to be in my library... so I am not entirely sure if or how I will paint it... I might just wear it down alot... 100nok :)
Another chair for my diningroom... it will be painted like the rest of course... I did wonder if I should have kept it white. But no, it will look better with the same colours as the rest of them... 50nok

I also bought a few bits and pieces and a large shelf for my plates... Its alot bigger than the one I allready have... so that should be interesting... I got it for a bargain at 30nok... I have seen these sold online for as much as 1000nok... so yeah...

Ma found alot of fun stuff as well, and just as we were about to leave... something very special jumped at us... and we just HAD to have it.... ma found this...
yes... a yellow rain hat!!! Ha ha... she even looks half good in it :)
And I found this... which I imediatly knew I had to give too my uncle...
I have never seen anything similar!!! Headlights, with a leather strap and a separate, large, battery.... wires everywhere... and the two lamps can be moved around... and with a pair of super-glasses from former fleamarkets... he looks like a cartoon character... Uncle Beetle!!! Ha ha... we lauged so hard we couldnt really breathe.

Well that was my wonderful saturday for now... I'm going to a birthday party tonight so I better get my body into the shower and get ready!!!

Have a fun weekend everyone!!!

Herlig. Jeg fant meg et nytt kjøkkenbord! Jeg elsker loppemarked, ikke bare for å kjøpe ting, men det er jo så mange morsomme mennesker og hyggelige samtaler med mennesker man slett ikke kjenner. Kos deg videre - det blir mange flere loppemarkeder utover våren.
