I've been finding quite a few goodies at my local market recently. This lovely little West German vase was hidden in a box of loose crockery and I took it home for one dollar, chanceux, oui?
Most of the new things I have found have been destined for ebay (a nice way to earn some extra pocket money and to keep myself out of trouble) but this little specimen will have a permanent home with moi. I figure that as long as I earn more than I spend then I can keep up my weekly hunting ritual without impeding on the household budget and cluttering up the house with too much 'crap'. Flipping some of my finds has also helped me turn over a lot of stuff I was sick of or that didn't 'feel right' in the house any more, making way for some cool new beauties; like rugs and paintings and other bits and pieces. Once the weather cools down a bit later in the week and I can open up the house a bit and let some light in, I'll take a few photo's of my favourite finds.
