To kick start my challenge of the utmost kind, last weekend we paid a visit to nearby Pissignano to check out their monthly flea market. Held on the first Sunday of every month, it's one of the biggest second hand and antique markets in Umbria with over 200 stalls. It was a bit of a recce for us to see what type of goods are on offer. Although we're not quite at the stage of buying furniture etc. yet, I want to start collecting bits and pieces for our house when and where we can. There was a huge variety of treasures on offer from vintage motorbikes to fabric and lace. Here are some pictures of what was tempting me.........
1. Vintage suitcases
2. Old kitchen scales
3. Copper pots and pans
4. Vintage radios
And here is what I bought.......
1. A dirty old wooden chopping board in need of a good scrub
2. Some 1950s provençal fabric
I could have bought so much more though. I have to be patient however. At the moment we need bricks and mortar not kitchen scales! Nonetheless, I think this could become a monthly outing for me.
Now to decide what to do with that fabric.......
