OUR WORLD - Waterloo Antiquity Market

Click on logo to join other participants

In our world are also Antiquity/Flea markets. We have a very big one in Waterloo, each Sunday morning on the parking space of the Supermarket Carrefour (that's like Tesco, or Walmart).
People from all over Belgium are coming to this market and there are a lot of foreigners too. I heard a lot of English and German.

It's amazing what people sell and of course also buy.

The weather was sunny and quiet warm, and therefore the whole place packed !

lots of useless and useful things to buy

A cat in a "Dutch" outfit and a little spinning wheel

This lady apparently had been very thirsty at 10 am ! I suppose that a group had their first good Belgian beer here. I don't think she drank all these bottles alone ! She probably wouldn't sit on the chair anymore.

Instead of a baby I saw a dog in the stroller

and some very strange shopping in the caddy. Maybe it would fit in your living room ?

African statues

And a brave dog, watching over the people.

I find these types of markets so interesting. I love to browse around whenever I come across a flea market.

I enjoyed the look at your market. Reminds me of ones we have where I live.

We call them Boot Sales here, because most people would sell stuff from out of their car boot (trunk).
Was that little spinning wheel a working model? I have a full size Norwegian style spinning wheel.

I love these markets and I especially look for books. I found some great old ones.
The person who sold them was afraid I would take the pages apart to frame the master paintings inside and resell them. I assured him I would not. The thought never crossed my mind.
But now I understand his fear which he now handed down to me to safe guard them from the same sort of thing happening to them if they fell into the wrong hands.
