Of course wherever I go, I just love checking out the local flea markets. Although I had to venture out on my own that day and I don't speak one word of German, I managed to find the flea market at Olympia Park and purchase a few finds.
This outside flea market is on the parking lot grounds of a sport stadium and it was row upon row of merchants selling stuff out of their vehicle. Generally, there has never been a flea market I did not like, but I must say that my first impression of this flea market seemed 'trashy'. Luckily, as I went deeper into the market, things got better and I found a few treasures that caught my eye.
These huge gold candle holders might seem a bit over-the-top on their own, but I could envision them transformed with a new coat of spray paint in a trendy colour. Or even black to take them to being classy and elegant. But alas, they were GIANT and looked like they weighed a ton so they definitely did not come home with me.
Everywhere I went, I saw tons and tons of mounted animal skulls. Seeing the sheer amount of so many seemed a bit creepy at first. But they eventually grew on me and I packed a little guy with me in my suitcase (not shown here).
Later that day, I stumbled across an antique store in the heart of Munich. Everything in this store seemed like it was hundreds of years old, and it most likely was. I also got the feeling that everything was worth a gazillion dollars which was a sharp contrast from being at the flea market. I instantly fell in love with this dresser of drawers and the tassels hanging from the giant keys. I think it would be the perfect statement piece in any room of the house. I have yet to see anything close to this in Canada. But when I do, it will be a glorious day!
