At the flea market and a bazaar.

Last Sunday I paid a quick visit at the open flea market which started again for this year and will hopefully be on a regular basis from now on.
I walked to the YMCA yard and walked around the small kiosks all by myself. As it was cold and most people were there in the morning just after the Alexander Marathon at the time I went almost no one was there.




 See how bad the weather was? Rainy and cold and windy.

 But as always I loved looking at little colourful pictures around me like this group of kids all wearing the same lovely raincoat.
And I couldn't leave empty handed from the flea market so I bought this lovely dark red vase with Venus painted on it and it says it is a souvenir from Rhodes island.
I only went to one Easter charity bazaar this year. The Melissa Orphanage organized it. Every year I find lovely things there and very cheap.
Some knitted birds and some porcelain ornaments along with a lovely bracelet and a fridge magnet.
 Some clothes...
 ...and a pair of Vans shoes for 2 euros! I would call that a bargain!
So everyone hope you enjoy a great Easter Sunday tomorrow!

I love a good flea market or garage sale-to welcome in spring the town nearest us holds an annual huge garage sale at the civic center-it takes all day to walk through it-I usually find good craft items there-this was the first year I forgot to look up the date and go.
I think I was so busy destashing my craft room that I didn't think about it-love the items you found-nice bracelet too
