Fleamarket weekend!

This weekend was the weekend of one of the bigger fleamarkets in town. I had looked forward to this for ages!!! So I lined up with everyone else, and nearly got stepped on while pushing through th door... People are mental I tell you!!!
But it was worth it. I got so much good stuff. My first task was making my way to the porcelain section, and it paid. I got two really nice peices of figgjo green for 90kr. One treangular bowl, sized small and a super nice plate.I then contiuned on to the section where the have clothes, becuase my sister had found us a nice selection of very old suitcases, and I bought 2. One for 30kr and one for 10kr... And also a nice red leather one for 10kr. Which I might use actually... The odd thing is... on saturday we got our suitcases for 10kr each, and later that day found another set. Exactly the same mind you... and they wanted a 100kr for each. The next day these still werent sold and we got them for 30kr each... they are however worth 100-150kr in antique shops... and I imagine they will be even more popular now that the new "vintage travel" look is about to hit. I use mine to store my drawing equipment, photgraphs, linen and everything else... and I want more!!! :)
I also got a tealight tree that I put inside my large lantern outside, along with some moss, it looks so fairytale like now... Gosh I cant stop staring at it. It looks amazing! I also bought that old holepunch which I intent to keep in my library when its done :)
A brass candlestick that I sparyed silver. And I have plans for this one outside.
some tealight glasses in green & a small zinc urn as well :) I think I paid 10kr for the glasses and the urn together.
Also found some rusty candlesticks and one in dark wood that I am saving for my library... and this fearie house... which is now resting next to my mailbox.. And of course something for my Skyline/Nutbrown kitchenware collection! Look it has grown over this season's fleamarkets.I have a massiv headcold, and my voice sounds like I've tried to smoke a whole pack of cigarettes at ones, while slurping down lots of whiskey... it's not even funny!!! And I have company from Scotland... my lovely Elaine is here to keep me entertained.. And we've had the best of weather! Sunday we went to see the O-man's horses being shown. His filly from this season called Golden Dawn (I just call her Goldie Hawn) won best foal of the day! Hurray!!! It was en excellent weekend if you look aside from the feeling ill part of it...Both my cats enjoying the autumn sun... Hexa having a look over her kingdom... or queendom I suppose... and Huldra there out and about on the field....

and today, as I was going to go vote, as it is Election Day, I realized I had a flat tire... what fun!!! siiigh....

Så mye fint du fant på loppemarked! De koffertene er bare kjempestilige :) og billig fikk du dem også. Det var en god ide å sette telysstaken inni lykten, nå blir det nok fint i mørket :)
God bedring!!

Modern Country sa...

Hei!

Takk for besøk og hilsen!

Så mange flotte funn du også fant i helgen. Moro!! Reisekofferter er så flotte, jeg ser de har blitt rene samlerobjektene om dagen. Jeg gikk forbi en også i helgen og tok i den. Men kom frem til at jeg ikke hadde plass.
Ekstra flott er det når flere i forskjellige nyanser blir stablet oppå hverandre. Urna di var også fin!

Så nydelige katter du har, herlige bilder!

Hei!
Takk for hygglig hilsen hos meg! Jo da, vi er ofte på Blaafarveværket, men det er mulig det ikke er så mange som skriver om det! Bildene fra Nyfossum er en mix fra i år + 2007-besøket. Du har en kjmepflott side, og har gjort noen fine varp på loppis i det siste, ser jeg! Ja, den sesongen er i gang nå, og det gleder jo et svoren loppis-hjerte på disse kanter også! Ha en fin dag! Cathrine :-)

Crème sa...

Åååh, så flotte funn du har gjort.

Angående den litt avlange sinkkassen i nettbuikken som du spurte etter inne hos meg, så kan den finnes via denne linken: http://www.creme.no/productdetails.php?product=632

Ha en superfin dag:)
