My search continued

We hit the town this weekend, in between rain storms. Searching for more treasures before we move back to USA. I'm kinda sad and kinda glad I haven't been doing this for the last two years. Not sure if everything would fit in sea container or if we would have any money left. So it's good the bug bit me so late in our time here.
Here are our weekend finds:


I'm linking up today with Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality for more Thrifty Treasures!

Now I'm jealous AND home if you want to call :)
Sorry i've been missing all your calls- I am NOT like someone else, ducking them. I keep forgetting to bring my phone when I leave the house- drives my family crazy!
It is 7:09 and I am having coffee until 7:30, then I am off to the bakery. Then?
The parade, the firehouse, rugby game, and BBQ.
WHEW!

Man, I need to come to some floh markets in Bremen. Most the ones near me are small and mostly have junk.

Don't get me wrong, I love me some junk, but the prices are high. Like one guy wanted 65 for a tea set. Now that may be a good price, but I don't know enough on the matter to justify the sale.

I only found one item so far that I have bought. It was a hand painted picture and had a frame made of oversized natural wood peices. I got it for 1.50.

I have noticed a lot of people at flea markets are trying to sell new items, bought in bulk. For instance buy out the discount chains and then sale at a flea market for more. :(
