i heart flea market

Photobucket

I was supposed to post this last weekend, but had never bothered to make this post before now and. Yes, I LOVE flea markets. I'm definitely a flea market person. It’s something about it, the looking and the adrenalin kick by searching after the right thing – the treasure. Last weekend I was at Østre Halsen flea market, which is one of the biggest flea market in my county and is always happening in the first week in the September. So during the weekend I was a treasure hunter. I always came 30 min before it started and was desperately trying to be the first in the line. The clothes section was in a tent and during the two days of flea market, it was crazy hot. Just imagine how it was inside the tent with 40 other people. After looking in the clothes, section it was straight forward the book section + furniture section, but I didn’t buy anything. No point, because my room is too damn small to buy furniture and I have no place to put books. Sigh, can’t wait to move on my own. But I did found many old Nancy Drew with old classic Drew covers..

But I did bought a lot of clothes for sure! I bought 2 shirts which was a see through shirt and a silk shirt, a purse, an old h&m trench coat, a floral dress, an old skirt, a pair of mittens(not pictured) and see through top(not pictured). All these I got for whopping 135 KR! I’m still amazed by the numbers. On the first day, I only spent 15 KR on the shirts and the skirt, and on the second day, I used 120 KR on the rest of the stuff. The first day was pretty cheap, but the second day was damn pricy but, still cheap. Now all the clothes are washed and I have sewn all the missing button on the shirts and shorten the lenght of the skirt and the dress.
