these are a few of my favourite (fleamarket) things.

One of our favourite things to do on a Sunday afternoon, now that the air is heavy with the scent of cherry blossoms, is to go to the fleamarket. They are ubiquitous here in Germany, and a great way to window shop, treasure and bargain hunt all at the same time. Whether at Portobello, Hell's Kitchen or  the parking lot of a grocery store chain, I love to fleamarket. Everything from vintage jewelery to mason jars to Easter decorations or books, I love searching for my new favourite thing!


Here, set to the tune of a favourite ditty, a few of my favourite fleamarket things. Warning: you will need to sing.

Worn-down old frocks and vintage white linens...


Stone antique statues and people you run in...

  
Bright flowery packages tied up with strings...


These are a few of my favorite things.
   
   
Cream colored bunnies and bright coloured dollies...


Doorbells and clock bells and veggies and lollies...



Mother and child in gold framed paintings...
  

And of course some really weird things.
  

Girls’ wedding dresses with white satin sashes...


Cookbooks that play to my nose and bare dishes...


Pungent ripe cheeses that make my mouth zing...


These are a few of my favorite things.
   

When the sun shines...


Then the 'stands' rise...


And it’s Sunday noon...


We simply collect all our smallest change...


And then we can’t help ourselves.
