Year-round flea market


As promised, some small treasures found at night in a flea market.
Indeed, we are lucky in Provence to have flea markets year round... the summer season brings night events to the calendar.


A pot of paint spilled on the old split board of the coat rack and of course, that is what attracted me.
One should not change this coat rack with its rusted coat hooks, except to fix its fleur-de-lys hooks; it found its place on a door in the courtyard.

An old glazed plate with amusing designs : Oak branches, in the shape of a birdhouse, frame a kitchen scene. A bird in flight and a bunch of carrots... ;-)

Some ancient books attracted me too.
What I always like is the more or less rounded spine that has lived.
Here they are fabric covered ; one of them has been written on with a feather quill pen.
