Many people think that when I go to flea markets, I go crazy and buy everything in sight. But for me, especially when perusing a venue with high prices, I'm happy to walk away with photos that remind me of my adventure. Such was the case when I visited for the second time the market on Britanski Trg (British Square) in the capital city of Croatia -- Zagreb.
We were first attracted to this table filled with industrial looking fixtures, a globe and a German clock. The vendor wanted $80 for the time keeper, which was interesting but was battery-operated and not that old, so I knew finding items at this market within my thrifty budget would be a challenge.
I almost inquired further about this crystal-filled, brass fixture, which was just under $100, but quickly decided that a picture would do.
And I had to really restrain myself from diving into a pile of lace that several ladies were rummaging through.
Some vendors attempted creative vignettes, such as this vintage, Marie Antoinette tin matched with other lady-like accessories.
And then, of course, there were unusual pieces I don't run into every day, such as this old Victrola horn. Tomorrow I'll show you how someone took a similar object and turned it into a spectacular focal piece.
