Art, Creativity, Photography, Travel, Writing

Earlier this month I spent a happy couple of hours indulging in one of my favourite occupations, one which I don’t get much opportunity to do namely wandering around the flea market in Arlon, Belgium. You can find a bit of everything here – second hand and vintage clothes, toys, crockery, pictures, antiques, jewellry, knock-offs, etc.

These are some of my finds:


faces on a house facade


a printer’s tray of wooden letter blocks – a mere 600 euros for the 3 trays – wish I could have bought them (sigh)!




someone had painstakingly created costumes for the ladies in these old fashion prints. I thought this was such a neat idea.



a stall selling vintage bits and pieces – postcards, lace, jewellry and feathers


and finally a stall selling a mannequin stand and various twisted wire creations

sharing with Kim Klassen’s Friday Finds
