Antiquing

If you ask my Husband what did you do this weekend....he will say "Antiquing"! Sounds funny coming from my manly of a man husband. On Friday we went to our Flohmart aka Fleamarket near our house, it's basically, ones mans junk is another man's treasure kind of place. We were like two kids in a candy store ewwing and ahhhing! We had so much fun. I'm kicking myself for not going sooner.

Here's our treasures:

1.5 l Gallo Le Coq Pitcher - I collect Rooster Motif 


I love Green and Toile -Royal Staffordshire



Delft Holland plate


Also collect Russian stacking dolls




Copper pans- Need a good cleaning

Total cost of items- 7.20 Euros/$8.90

What a great fleamarket...you sure found lots of treasures! I love 'antiquing' myself...haven't been for a while, but somehow I just got a 'hankering' for it ;D

Nice finds! I actually went to an antique store today. I bought a black & white framed photo. I'll take pics and post it on my site eventually. Course my one thing cost as much as all of yours, lol.

You founds some treasures for sure! Boo isn't much for yard sales and thrift stores. Today we went to a yard sale to pick up a bigger dog door than the one we have already. He says, "Is that all?" When told the price. I told him later, you're not supposed to make it sound like they aren't charging enough because then they'll raise the price. I wish you were closer, I'd love to go fleamarketing with you.

SCORE!! My mom collects rooster and chicken motif too. She also has lots of Delftware. I love Delftware, it is so pretty. I am not a collector of anything though.... I am busy getting rid of stuff throughout the house. The more I find to get rid of there is much more to still get rid of.... xoxoxo
