Antique Fair

Unfortunately I don't have an outfit post this weekend. After suffering through a nasty cold all weekend I wasn't really in the mood for photographs. On a whim we decided to drive to an antique fair on the outskirts of the city for a rummage.

I'm so glad that we did, there were hundreds of stalls and so many covetable pieces. On the whole everything seemed to be reasonably priced, which isn't always the case. I added countless items to my ever growing Christmas list and had to exercises extreme control, so as not to bring destitution upon myself.

One stall in particular stood out (over half on my pictures were taken there), all of the stall holders items were so perfectly chosen. I was so torn over buying the tatty green drawers or the basket but in the end the choice was made for me because when I went back the drawers were gone. I also had my eye on the sweet little house painting but I left it behind, I desperately hope that it will still be for sale at Funk Fair next month. Although I highly doubt it.

I'll have another outfit picture soon but in the meantime there are some more pictures from the fair on my flickr

    Antique markets are amazing, but I always have such trouble deciding what to buy! I could clean out my life savings in one day at an antique market, no doubt!

  16. Wish I lived somewhere you could find so many fairs and fleamarkets, but here is only one each third month :( and it´s not really cool , you have to have big luck if you are looking for something really special!
    the suitcases are beyond amazing!
