Sunday’s are market days and my husband and I had about 2 hours between places we had to be so we thought we could squeeze in a market we knew of close by. In some of the towns that don’t have regularly scheduled markets the occasional markets are small, maybe in a grocery store parking lot with maybe 30 or 40 venders. We figure an hour or so would be plenty of time for a quick walk through. When we arrived we found our little market was actually taking place throughout the Altstadt (old town.) Street after street and we only had an hour and a half to shop, Arrrhhh. A pleasant surprise but we had to work fast, here are some of our finds…
- A collection of about 200 European stamps 8€ ($11) I would love to use them to make something like THIS
- A 4″ pewter bird 4€ ($5.50) has a little hangar on the back for hanging
- A huge Paint by Number 10€ ($14) not as common here in Germany as in the U.S. so I was glad to score one.
- WWII wedding portrait 16″x12″ 8€ ($11) for Chuck’s soldier collection.
- Frederick Francis IV, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin framed lithograph 23″x30″ 20€ ($28) also for Chuck’s soldier collection.
- And as always we scored a few pieces of West German ceramics, From Left to right: 25cm 3€ ($4.20), 18 cm 2€ ($2.80), 18cm 1€ ($1.40),11cm 2€ ($2.80)
And of course my handsome porter.
