I went to the Haifa downtown fleamarket again, got a sunburn as I forgot to bring my hat! It is really getting too hot already to walk over the market, so I guess the next time will be when autumn starts (if I can hold myself that long hehehe). The market is spread over a couple of streets downtown, between beautiful old abandoned house ruins. I got some nice finds, allthough it was hard to get a bargain. One seller started to argue and being not nice as I didn't want to pay 50 shekels for two small ironstone staffordshire transferware plates (that's around 13.50 dollars).
I got myself an Israeli sypholux glass soda bottle (Seltzer), a metal tray that I have some plans for, a nice wooden painted handle box and a small Alfred Meakin Staffordshire brown transferware plate with "the mill" pattern, all for 60 shekels (16 dollars), not bad, as only for the seltzer they wanted 40. Also saw a beautiful large mirror for 30 shekels (8 dollars), but it was heavy and I thought to take it when I go home. Of course by than it was gone. Doh.
