So Pretty: Fleamarket Find at Wunderschoen Gemacht

Last week I saw the prettiest little arrangement of the sweetest spring colors over at reader Dunja's Wunderschön Gemacht blog. I always love the photos she takes, but these were just too cheery not to share! These are some of her photos from her lovely flea market find -and before you say "I never find anything good at flea markets!", take note: she used to say the same thing before finding this piece!

Another thing to note: the piece is pretty, but her own things are what bring it to life. That's a helpful perspective to keep in mind when you're hunting around; it doesn't have to be a showstopper, it just has to fit in with what you already have.

Be sure to check out Dunja's blog -she takes lovely photos and has a great eye for color and style! Don't worry if you don't read German, just put her address into Google Translate and you'll get the gist!

What about you? Have you found any flea market treasures lately? I really don't seem to have much luck in my area of Germany. I really miss going to yard sales in the US! =( Most flea markets around here feature trashy videos and random used clothing (shockingly, much of that clothing is undergarments!). Anything 'good' is rare and usually insanely expensive. I think I would have to drive an hour to Frankfurt to get close to anything better...or?

I stumbled onto Dunja's blog a while back from a comment that she left on yours... such beautiful photos!

Our local flea market sounds about the same, so we have to travel into Hamburg to find nice one. Actually it is the "little guy" who likes all the action, it's just the "big guy" that I have to convince to go!

Hallo Juliette,

ich habe gerade Deinen Blog gefunden und finde ich wunderbar. Eigentlich gehöre ich zu den Stemplern, aber ich interessiere mich auf für Deko, Einrichtung, etc. Deinen Blog habe ich bei mir verlinkt (unter Unstempeliges, Deko, etc.) und hoffe, das ist ok für Dich.

Hugs, Tina :)

those shots are indeed adorable, and the finding.. simply love!

here in Romania flea markets are similar to those you described to be found in Germany, but i had the chance to find some goodies. I'm always searching for jewelry and tea sets, and i found some wonderful vintage brooches, they were surprises for myself, too : )

PS: wonderful blog you have, nice to meet you : )

We go to Homburg at least 6 times a year! It probably has the most diverse selection. In our area of Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar, flea markets are better sometimes than others - but our junking days are fabulous!

You are more than welcome to tag along on our next Homburg market trip (07 May). We will probably try to hit a few of the others too - Idar-Oberstein, Trier, Luxembourg City... Maybe even Metz or up to the Netherlands! (Not all in the same day, but over the next few weeks/months!)

Let me know when you can come and we can show you around our normal range of thrifty!

Today I acquired a few old (but fab) kitchen tools in Baumholder.

What a lovely find! I love all the colors, so pretty.

In my town, the flea market prices are getting really high. Sometimes they are asking same prices as antique stores. And for less quality stuff... But if you drive an hour away from the city there's much better prices.
