MY WORLD - Waterloo Flea market


more participants here

Each Sunday there is a "Brocante" or Flea market on the big parking space in front of the Carrefour store. From real antiques until false teeth (I saw them once laying in a basket) you find here everything you want or mostly don't want. That's my case. I love to walk there and look at stalls and what people sell or buy.



The weather was sunny so there were lots of people



I didn't need garden furniture or a red sofa



Jewelry I prefer to buy in Egypt




Lots and lots of people,



and chairs and tables for sale



Some visitors just sat down and tried them out



This lady had bought a mirror



some paintings and other decorations







antique costumes and toys



This nicely decorated van was not for sale, but the Pinocchio !



I think the baby bed is just good to use it as a flower pot




and what should I do with this rusty stuff and an old school bank ?

Some people create extraordinary things out of junk. I am still giggling about those false teeth.

Wow - looks like a great market. I'd be especially interested in antique costumes! Only so I could then force my friends into weird photo shoots though!

Must be something to see!!! Those markets are very popular in Provence as people love own decorations. Some have bought an old provençale house and all staffs were bought in flea markets.
C'est un phénomène de mode.
Hier je suis revenue de Paris où j'ai accompagné Anaïs. Elle est de retour en Finlande!!
