Hamburg flea market

Before we went over to Germany I told my cousin Ramona that I wanted to go to a German flea market. I thought that it would be different, and I wanted to check out the prices of things. We found out that prices there are much higher than the ones we have been to over here. I spent too much time looking, and not enough time taking pictures! Don't know what was wrong with me that day! So, here are a few pictures that hubby and my cousin's husband took.

Hubby found some big spoon used for melting and pouring.

I did not realize that hubby had taken this picture, but I just love it!! I like the way it looks with the railing, the buildings on the side, fall colors, and the river. It is one of my favorite pictures. Now if you look closely at the top next to that blue/white ginger jar you will see another container. This has a castle on the top and Rhineland pictures all around it. I just had to have it, and my cousin knew the lady so she was able to bargain with her. I believe it could also be as soup container as it has a slot for a spoon.

I carried that home in my carry on luggage as I was so afraid that it might get broken. Of course you should have seen their faces as it went through the xray machine!!! I didn't realize until later after seeing that picture there was a female statue on the table. Oh well, maybe next time.

I love flea markets too. And yeah for hubby and his photos! Last trip to Switz we landed on the right day for the flea market in Interlaken. Boy was I happy! I got lots of tiny gifts that I am still in love with.

By the way, last move was just to a bigger place in the same building. We acquired an extra visitor now and thought it would be worth our sanity to get something for all 3 of us... So moving again at the end of the month.

Hi Ulrike,

I enjoy fleamarkets just as much as you. The one in Munich you went to looks beautiful, with the water running through the city and the beautiful houses. I like your container. It is a pity we cannot see it a bit closer. Do you use it for soup?

Have a lovely sunday & happy thanksgiving! Lieve groet, Madelief

Hi Ulrike,

Me again! Just saw the city you went to last year was Hamburg and not Munich. I am sorry! I blog with some girls from Bayeren and I got confused!!!

Lieve groet, Madelief

First thing I noticed on that table was the bust of the lady - just the one I've been searching for. You just know I would have probably hauled that home in my carryon!!!!
