The fabulous toast server ...

Yes, I am a huge fan of the flohmarkt. .. the German version of our fleamarkets. It's a visual overload feast for the eyes with the bonus of exercise with the walking path being so very very long. If you were looking for antlers, they had them, mid century vases and ceramics - yup, lots of fabulous lamps and books, beads and baubles, antique posie books and papers, lots of bits and bobs and textiles from many different decades. I didn't even look at the furniture as it was impossible to think about sending it over, but there was plenty very cool items I would have loved to send stateside!
It was a glorious day last Saturday with extra sunshine, lots of little cooling breezes and a very patient and loving husband carrying all the finds along the way. We even found a replacement Villery and Boch teapot for my mother in law who had her beloved one broken recently! Yes, you can find it at the flohmarkt. Even if you are not looking.
