Sundays In My City-Flea Market



Yesterday I went to our flea market along the Weser River. It's there every Saturday, mostly it's a bunch of crap mixed with a few treasures. Yesterday was gorgeous 70 degree day sun shinning and lots of people. Above the river embankment is the Beer Garden - Schlachte, it was full of vendors selling new goods, food, drinks and a Country Western band was playing and lots of people were line dancing. The city was full of energy. Germans are fascinated with all things Western. After I shopped I sat in the beer garden, had a beer and brat wurst and soaked up the sun and culture.  It was certainly the place to be!




Stop by UnknownMami and visit her city and more!
Happy Sunday!

Your description of a lot of crap with a few treasures is perfect; sounds like every flea market I've ever been to :) Still, the energy of it all sounds fun--great description.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Outdoor markets are so much fun. YOu never know what you'll find. And it looks like you totally scored! I'm a blue plate fan and have several too!

Happy SMIC,

Suzy said...

If you gave me a choice between a big diamond ring or going to flea markets I would always take the latter.

Liz@Violet Posy said...

Wow what a beautiful city and you found some really gorgeous finds. I love those plates!

Ed Pilolla said...

that teapot is the coolest. sounds like fun day. yes, soaking in the sun and culture. nice.

Shelle said...

i love what you found...just think...real antiques directly from Europe. they will be a nice trophy on your wall in your new home.

i think i'd much rather a relaxing stroll thru and german market & bier garten than the streets of ny...but it does have pluses. there is a market several times a year the block down from our church on Sundays...but this one was in times square right outside m&m world...we really scored that day. hope you come down for a visit!!!

Unknown Mami said...

I love your finds! Totally worth sorting through junk for.

Mrs. Lovely said...

Those are great photos! My favourite is in the first collage, first pic in the second row.

Great finds, I guess if I had read a few back entries I would have realized you are on your way back to the states. I am sad I am just finding your blog, but I am sure the adventures will only continue as you move to your new home.

Lucky you! Beautiful day, good shopping and bratwurst! I love bratwurst!
We cleaned the whole weekend (that's why I'm late)...and still much to do.
I don't understand how people can live like pigs...
