Hello friends! Today was flea market day - it wasn't raining, not freezing - so, excellent conditions to go spend a few hours sorting through the flotsam and jetsam of humankind, discovering treasures, tools, secret keepers, typically Bavarian items and other wonders in general. Please join me!
I have never been able to comprehend how someone could think this was a means of transportation...
Beautiful secret keepers - so many intriguing keys!
A wall sconce that formerly graced a church, resting on an old armchair.
Ahh, Bavaria! A typical collection of deer antlers (the deer here are smaller than in America) and a quite Bavarian gentleman.
Typical Bavarian lederhosen.
Vintage glass treasures from the Czech Republic and Germany.
There is something so fascinating about old tools.
Oops, that's me, lost in thought about the printmaker's cabinet we didn't buy... no room in the house... darn!
But I did bring home some small treasures:
A simple little cutlery box, with some old lace (is this what you call tatting? I have no idea what that is), some brass trim, a brass cat stamping, some old watch cases, some old printing supplies...
More watches and more trim; not sure this is brass.
A peculiar little metal tray filled with little keys and "stuff".
A very delightful day at the flea market. Hope you saw something you liked! Have a lovely Sunday! Maybe I'll see you at the BOC Open Studio tour later!
