While me and my significant other were on our little road trip, I took the chance to visit some flea markets on the way. Of course I didn't have time to visit all of them, but here are the most interesting ones I did visit.
Kirpputori-kahvio Radanvarsi at Rautatienkatu 6
Is located in an old railway building. The flea market is in 3 floors, with the top floor for newer furniture, street level for rentable booths where people can bring their own clotes etc. and the basement for old mags and some antique furniture.
I didn't buy anything from here, but I thought it was interesting.
Torin Kymppi ja Liiteri at Myllymäenkatu 1
Is a self service flea market in 2 floors with a lot of rentable booths and some antique furnitue in the basement. Here I found 3 pairs of vintage gloves and mint 50's-50's blouse.
On the way to Uusikaupunki we drove past Laitila and noticed a sign for a flea market so we popped in. I think this one is sustained by the church. It was a cute little store in an old house and 2 floors. The ground floor is for self service booths and on the top there were some random clothes and a few furnitures that looked like they were donated. Here I found a bolt of suiting wool for only 10 euros. It said in the label there would be 10 meters in the bolt, but I doubt if there's really that much and I haven't measure it yet.
In Uusikaupunki we went to Kurjenpolun Kirppis at Kurjenpolku 2.
This one is a big self service flea market with mostly rentable booths, but also some furniture and a lot of old mags. I bought a bunch of 40's and 50's fashion and knitting mags here and a cute modern knit shirt.
|I found 3 pairs of gloves at Torin Kymppi ja Liiteri, they all seem unworn and the black ones even have the original tag on them. The white lace ones are my favourite - so delicate!|
|A bunch of vintage fashion mags for inspiration and to knit from.|
|Isn't that red dress adorable?|
I still left a bunch of mags behind me as I only took the ones that interest me most. I just wish I had the time to knit all the lovely dresses and sweaters from the knitting magazines. Ah well, maybe someday I'll have that knitting machine.
|I would definitely start with this shift dress. How chic is that!|
And ofcourse Gomez wanted to have a look at my finds as well.
Have you come across some good finds recently?
