fleamarket on a hot Sunday

way too early by momentstolivefor

This weekend we went to the big fleamarket at Bremen B├╝rgerweide and sold much of our stuff. I’m really into simplifying this year, because I’m overwhelmed by all kinds of things, like too many clothes, that I don’t wear any longer, too many books I want to read, too much crafts I want to try… too much. This is the reason, why I chose ‘simple’ as my word for 2013.

All year long I went through my things and collected those, which were no longer interesting for me or too old or too shappy and gave them away to charity or threw them away, if they looked too bad. Additionally I collected some of it in boxes to sell them on a fleamarket. And this Sunday we finally had the time for our own sales booth. We stood up way too early for a Sunday, but in the end it was worth it. We sold at least two big boxes full of stuff and earned good money for our next vacation. So we went home very beat-up, but happy.

It was so hot, that we almost burned up and I’m still wondering, why I didn’t get a sunburn on my neck, my favorite place, where I get a sunburn every year. When we came home our cats waited for us, laying lazy in the sun, too lazy to greet us at the door. We unpacked only the really necessary things and then… just lay down, stretched out, drank an icecold Aperol Spritz and ate yummy muffins.

hope you all had a happy weekend too and enjoyed the amazing weather

 

PS: I took two of my photo walks ‘fleamarket finds‘ and ‘fleamarket finds II‘ at the same fleamarket.

I’m always amazed, what I find on fleamarkets. Everytime there are new, unexpected things. Especially happy I become, when I see things, that once belonged to me or played with in childhood days. Then suddenly some long forgotten memories pop up in my head and lead me back to those happy times. How do you feel, when you find something long forgotten on a fleamarket?

Although I already did a photo walk: fleamarket finds, I couldn’t resist taking new photos on our walk around my second favorite fleamarket – happens every Sunday at the B├╝rgerweide in Bremen. My favorite one is also the biggest in Germany – it takes place once a month in Bonn at the Rheinaue Leisure Park. Next we will visit different fleamarkets in Berlin and hope to find some unique things for decoration and furniture for our home. What do you search for on fleamarkets?
