This Sunday I woke up really early, almost as early as Hannes (and normally he goes up two or three hours before me), and told him that I’d like to visit a flea market. I don’t do it very often, but when I do I think it’s fun. So he drove me to three(!) different flea markets.
Of course, you have to be in the right state of mind to enjoy a flea market. Don’t believe people who tell you that it’s easy to find great deals there. No. The prices are very low, that’s true, but I was amazed by the amount of rubbish people are selling! Especially when it comes to clothes. As you know, I throw out and donate my things every now and then, but the things I get rid of are literally in new condition compared to what people are trying to sell sometimes! To be honest, I would be embarrassed to offer people things like that for free, let alone sell them.
However, if you’re good (and if you get there early), you can find some really beautiful things for almost no money at all.
