Bonjour and Hello!
Finally, I sorted the pictures of my weekend trip via Holland to France and Belgium.
My friend Patricia and I had a great time again. It’s our annual flea market trip since four years now and if you love fleamarkets like we do, I can only recommend it.
We slept very little, we walked kilometers, through crowds of people with our recycled goodies, sweating and getting bruised from the small furniture we bought, but we didn’t care! We got everything home and we also had lots of funny stories to tell with almost everything we bought, haggled over or even got for free!
Yep, I love flea markets!
To give you an impression, here is a selection of photo’s I wanted to share with you.
It’s a bit long this post, so get a drink and a comfy chair!
Oh, and you can click on the pictures to make them bigger
( I found this out just a few weeks ago…..yeah,…I know….)
Pictures from Lille
|We arrived in the middle of the city,
no need to look for parking, we
went with Antique S-hopper!
|The traditional food since the 15th century in Lille,
mussels with french fries!
|A flamboyant sales lady.|
|I almost bought these, but after a phone call
back to Sweetheart, his message was
“Thank you for not buying!”
|So instead I bought the left cabinet! The right one
and the two paintings are P. her goodies.
We adored the girl, so we named her Emily!
|Lovely old suitcases
(see my goodie in the back? I was bruised carrying that…)
|This was yummy!|
|A lot of recycled goodies.|
|See that yellow ceramic pitcher on the right?
I bought that for my oldest daughter, for her
new room, to store her crayons and pencils.
|Live music from a vendor.|
|Lovely bistro chairs.
Shame green is not my color.
|Lovely vintage bottles and blue crates.|
|I wanted to buy letters but couldn’t find all our initials.|
|They just need some TLC!
I couldn’t carry more, otherwise…
|Unpacked French goodies!|
|I like old world maps, but I couldn’t find what
I was looking for.
|This sign made me laugh!|
So, if you are here, you have made it half way, well done!
Now, we go to Kemmel…
Pictures of Kemmel
|Early in the morning, we are on our way.
Yep, you really have to love fleamarkets!
|We were not the only early birdies….|
|Famous Dutch wooden shoes. I forgot to go back for
the little footstool on the left…
|Only 5 euro! It’s my new old chair!|
|This was just the beginning of the road outside the
village. I couldn’t see the end for some hours…
|She looked so sweet, I had to buy her for
my youngest daughter, to keep little precious
girly things in the dress.
|Again, couldn’t find all my loved ones letters,
but I really like this picture.
|This is my favourite bus! I love old beetle cars!
|The light blue metal clock I was lucky to buy, just
minutes before we had to be back at the bus.
It will hang in the new apartment!
|Our trolleys were packed with little goodies!|
|The combined result of our treasure hunt!|
Well, as lovely as this was to make, my eyes are now square of looking at this computer
for so long, trying to upload these photo’s….
Hope you enjoyed it!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
