Flea Market Finds

I went to a flea market in Cologne last weekend, one that I’ve sold things at before, and found three great items all for less than 8 euros.

Bag: Handmade in India (by Bethany Leprosy Colony, AP, India and sold by MESH)

Asking Price: € 2.50

Sold For: € 2.00

Hammock: Unused, still in original bag

Asking Price: €8

Sold For: €5

Glass Bowl: Handmade in Spain, Recycled Glass, Durable

Asking Price: €0.50

Sold For: €0.50

I only had 10 euros on me and came home that afternoon with three great items and change in my pocket!

    Great items! Flea markets are the perfect place to find unique stuff and give things a new home that would otherwise end up in a landfill. I’ve made quite a few good deals at flea markets myself but sometimes it can be hard to find the gems among all the clutter. It takes a good eye!

  2. I absolutely love this blog! What a great, inspiring idea especially in the summer time! Thanks for the hot tips, I just might have to go out there and see for myself. We have a weekly Sunday flea market near my home in East Durham. I will keep you posted.
    Thanks again,

      Thanks, I thought you might like the content of this new blog! I learned all of my yard sale, flea market and thrift store shopping skills from you after all! I’ve never been to the market in E. Durham but I have always wanted to check it out. Let me know if you go sometime.
