fleamarket finds

so i went to the fleamarket again yesterday. i thought there would be a big one at the other end of the town and a friend of mine wanted to follow. she didn't have time before 10 or 10.30, so i thought i'd check the smaller one which was close to her place until she was ready. it was lucky i decided to do that, because, as we biked through town we realized that there was a nazi-demonstration right around the area where the big fleamarket was supposed to be. nice! so we had this bad feeling that the market probably wouldn't happen, and right we were. all we saw was hundreds of green cars and police men, but no fleamarket, so we decided to go and have coffee and cake instead.

nevertheless i had scored a few finds during the morning at the small market:

























pretty flowery fabric (to be a summer dress..), three 50s porcelain eggcups, a missmatched teacup and saucer, also from the 50s (maybe 60s or 40s), a round picture frame and, the absolutely best find: a tapestry bag in green, cream and red. perfect in size and shape, fake green leather and for 5 euroninos only. i had been looking for a tapestry bag for at least half a year, so guess how happy i was!!!
here is a close-up on the eggcups and teacup, i just love the graphic pattern!

























i also found some clothes: a retro diners-waitress blouse in white with a print with small red coke-bottles which i will show you some other time, and a costume jacket in grey and light blue:




















the jacket still has the original price-tag on, and i got it for 2€! still, it looks a little too proper granny for my taste, so i plan to adjust it a little by changing the buttons, taking out the horrible shoulder pads (my shoulders are large enough by themselves) and adding some studs, inspired by this jacket from the h&m divided exclusives fall collection:

























(picture from nitrolicious)
The only question remaining is: does anybody know where i can get black pyramid studs? i found silver ones on ebay, so an alternative would be to buy those and spraypaint them black. but that would be such a hassle! so if you got any idea, please tell me! i also thought about just using silver/steel studs, but i think black would go so much better with the jacket's black trimming...

Mir hat es ja vor allem das Täschchen angetan... wunderbar!

Mit Grundschulkindern macht man ja immer am Anfang Tests zu Verhaltensauffällikeiten - früher waren 1 oder 2 von 25 Kindern auffällig. Heute sind 1 oder 2 "normal". Gerade ADS ist weit verbreitet. In der letzten Grundschulklasse die ich hatte waren 8 Kinder die deswegen Medikamente schluckten (von 19). Insofern gebe ich dir absolut recht!

Das sind aber tolle Schnäppchen. Beim Porzelan sind wir auf einer Wellenlänge. Wieder unglaublich diese Preise.

@ out of the mist: thank you! i took it out with me for the first time today, it's beautiful!

@ nadine: ja, die tasche ist ein traum.. ich finde das wirklich beängstigend, v.a wenn man sich überlegt wie rasch die zahlen der "schwierigen" kinder gestiegen sind. dabei wären die meisten bei ordentlicher ernährung und quality time mit der familie gar nicht schwierig...

@ le tasche: porzellan aus den 50ern ist einfach schön...
