I recently made a trip to a flee market.
Usually, I'm not into vintage stuff, but it was quite an experience! My curiosity was sparked when I came across 1950s "Time" magazines, with all those funny ads and photo journalism. I was particularly attracted to household goods, like rare vinyl records and cast iron pots hanging on the wall. Surely, I felt like I flew several decades back in time.
Finally, I arrived at the vintage jewelry counter, and for a moment my sight got so overwhelmed with all the trinkets behind the glass counter. I couldn't focus, so I had to circle around at least three times before I could process everything. Finally, a few pieces were unique enough to try. I was even more intrigued to buy them so ridiculously cheap. A few dollars later, I scored 1 pair of lion earrings, a necklace and 2 pins. I'm glad to share my finds with you.
Have you ever been to flee market?
How was your experience?
