One of my most favourite places to visit is the flea market in Jaffa. Its the only flea market i know of here and its actually quite expensive for a flea market...but...old things, found objects, second-hand, beautiful, crumbling old buildings...

...what could be a better way to spend the morning?..

After perusing for a while and picking up a couple of boxes we went to have breakfast in one of my favourite cafes - its situated in the center of the market and all the furniture, cutlery, crockery and decoration is from the market. While we were eating, i thought that it would be the perfect place to have my first exhibition!! The person i need to ask about this is abroad..so i hope i will be bringing up this subject again in a week or two!!

My camera is broken...hence the blurry photos.


After breakfast i found a few little things for Paula, Shari and Steph.



We are off camping tomorrow...so have a great weekend everyone xx

    You put a smile on my face.
    Those old crumbling buildings are great and the place where you had breakfast sounds fab with all the findings from the market. I wish I had been there with you enjoying some tea.
    Something for me??!!! :)
    My fingers are crossed for this first exhibition...can't wait for the person to come back and get the good news.
    Have a great weekend camping...you'll love it...enjoy!

    Hi Julie,

    Checking out a flea market is indeed the best way to past a lovely morning. I'm heading to a few antique shops this week, and I can hardly wait!

    I like the photo of the red kettle, the bands on the building behind it look like they are coming out of the kettle.

    Hope your camping trip was ace.

    Cheers, lj
