At the antique market

On Sunday morning it was the monthly open antique or flea market that takes place in a park near my house.
This event started in May and the mayor allowed it only to happen four times in the summer and we only went in two of thhose. When they saw how happy the people were to look around this they decided to continue it so till the end of the year it will be every month. We missed the September one as we didn't know about it.The next two ones for the local readers will be on November 18th and December 23rd.
I didn't have too much to spend so I was careful. I found lots of beautiful old books and really would have loved to buy more but I decided to be very careful in my spending.
So here is what I got.
I warn you there are too many photos in this post!

Those lovely glasses are still there, they are too expensive to be bought.
Gorgeous lamps.

My mum's Singer.
Fantastic porcelain.
Great Venetian mask and embroidery.
This one was really strange. The Greek tsolias' hair is real hairs!
I loved this light blue porcelain shell.

Old tsarouhia
I loved that ship!

Those were really beautiful too. So much work on them!

A pile of embroideries.
Lovely vintage tins.
And among everything the star spangled banner.
This one was a very elegant kiosk.

Old records with traditional music.
Oh isn't this sewing box lovely?
Favourite spot.

And a small exhibition of uniforms and weapons of the Balkan wars.
I will show you what I bought in another post. Hope you enjoy the walk with me!

I so enjoyed our walk. And I saved myself a lot of money this way. There were so many beautiful things I would have spent it all.
