It's not the best season for flea markets, it's so COLD outside!
But flea markets are like a drug... you never know what amazing things that you will see and even buy!!!
This portrait for example... Sylvain bought this same uniform many years ago but we had no idea from where it came!
Do you know what it is just behind me?
It's a sedan chair, I had never seen one in real life...
There are always incredible items in this monthly rendez-vous!
We fell in love with these 2 Club armchairs but unfortunatly their condition was quite bad.
Isn't it Santa Claus's sleigh? Probably from the XIXth century.
But prices are often high in this event...
Sylvain even found a 50's bike to make some sport!
But we could not come home empty hands... we will show you what we bought at the end of this post!
So a few words about our outfits...
Sylvain choose a 30's "gavroche" style!
For me an early 50's wool dress.
I made some B&W pictures from my husband and it turned pretty good I think.
I love their atmosphere, can be vintage pictures!
The black felt bows that I wear there are a recent purchase.
I thrift them last week about 20 NOS bows, probably made to decorate hat in the 40's!
But they can be worn as a brooch...
or hair clip!
I bought this dress from Etsy last year but never worn it... it's a bit too big...
That's the problem when you buy vintage clothes online, even with the same measurements one can fit and the other doesn't fit...
Another Etsy find is this purse! I love these kind of wickers most of the time made in Hong-Kong , they are the only vintage purse large enough to accomodate all thing a contemporary girl need!!!
Snood are always your good friend when you want to leave house really early!
Here are a few details of Sylvain's outfit: 40's winter jacket, 50's motorcycle pants, handknitted pullover... just dashing!
So I'm pretty sure you are dying to see what we bought!
I found 6 glasses from the 50's, still in their box! The seller told me they came from a transalantic compagny but I could find any informations about them on internet.
We also bought vintage barkclothes.
I found 2 vintage earrings sets, yellow ones are bakelite, red are plastic.
I also bought this embroidered top that I believe is from the 30's... but I tried it at home and it's unfortunatly too small... so I must sell it know, anyone interested?
And my last finds.... BAKELITE!!!! These bangles are quite hard to find in France and often pricey, I got those 6 for less than 20 euros, quite a good price.
When was your last flea market?
