My plan to go to the fleamarket this weekend failed. Good I went last weekend in Stockholm, so I have some impressions to share anyways! 

Aren't the things displayed in such a nice and thoughtful way?

    I never was such a big fan of flea markets until we moved to SF and discovered the Alameda Flea market, the biggest one in northern CA with. Since them I'm in love with them. :)

    I love flea markets and estate sales and have become quite good at haggling to get a better price. Those copper pots on the second photo look nice. Did you end up buying anything?

    @Nina was really close to buying a lamp - but in the end I found it a little too expensive (just as almost everything in Stockholm!) and there was no way I could have squeezed that into my suitcase, so in the end I was glad I didn't get it. Even though I'm still daydreaming of it ;)
    @Ana I think fleamarket love is also something you have to grow up with, then it stays with you forever. My mom is a big fleamarket hunter and when we lived in New York for a while in the 90s she furnished our whole apartment with things from a big fleamarket which was right around the corner from our house in Chelsea then (which doesn't exist anymore) because we couldn't bring any furniture from europe or afford to buy everything new. We went to the fleamarket every weekend to look for little treasures (which was still possible then. They'd be selling real Thonet Chairs for 10 Dollars!) and since then I'm hooked.
