Early rise pays off
After an early start to the day and a line up in a queue (we were near the front, thank goodness) we raced around a large flea market looking for special finds. Donna found the largest pancheon we have ever had, a Victorian brass birdcage and some Spanish oil jars. I bought a dressmaker's dummy on a tripod stand, a large silverpated bowl and some fruitpicker's ladders. I also picked up a very useful vintage basket trolley (above) to help transport all these heavy pieces. Overall we were pretty pleased with the morning. This afternoon we are collecting a French day bed and French patisserie counter that we bought earlier in the trip. I hope the marble on the counter is not too heavy! The counter is really beautiful though, so it will be worth it.
