Fleamarket



Going to the fleamarket this weekend? I wish I could join you, but looks like rain, rain, and more rain our way. Hopefully it will clear up on Sunday because Dave and I have tickets to the fair! For now let's enjoy the thrill of the hunt with these clever fleamarket photos by Anneke Jakobs. In the last photo arrangement fleamarket finds are removed - or at least that is how I interpret it. Hmm...how clever to try that in your own space...how many of your items are fleamarket finds?

Happy hunting!

Almost EVERYTHING I own is second hand. I really mean everything, too. (except underwear!)

YOu this is one thing we hardly have here, I've never been to a flea market, havent seen one either. 2nd hand goods arent very popular here...most goes into the bin..how sad.

Happy weekend :D

I would love to go to the flea, but I have so much to do this weekend! Most of my finds come from thrift stores. I dont get to yardsales much, and the two local fleas are basically on the other side of town and the next town over.

I love flea markets, but rarely have time to go. I'm starting to see more finds appearing in my house, and my decor is definitely inspired by the "flea market look." I'm getting the itch to go now! :)

It's so weird..I was just talking about flea markets and how fun they can be. I LOVE to take my camera with me when I'm on one of my 'markets wandering trips'. :)

fleamarket makes me feel like a character, in a fairy tale, looking for that certain something, to break a spell or bring me home.

Rachel said...

Cool pictures!

Mrs.French said...

love these...helping with my itch to get to one soon.

Stephanie said...

really great - I especially like the ones with the stuff excised. Very cool indeed.

Hope you are having good weather for your expedition - it has rained all weekend here and I am beginning to feel like a new species of aquatic life!

Jacqueline said...

Hello,hello, it's been ages since I stopped by and I see you haven't disappointed me at all. Loved the pictures very much. I'm also experiencing rain, rain and more rain this weekend. Did you go to the fair? Hope you enjoyed yourself.

JLC Studio said...

Yuck!! It's been raining here all weekend as well! I can't believe it...hope you didn't get as much as we did!!

Love the pictures...I wish I shopped more a flea markets but I never seem to know where they are being held!

Leanne said...

Catching up on blogging... Chicago got A LOT of rain this weekend, too. Did you make it to the flea market??? Just curious. My husband and I have collected several pieces from flea markets, thrift stores, curb-side discoveries, etc. I love the story behind the items, ya know. You just don't get the same narrative from a Pottery Barn piece.

These are the coolest photos ever!
