(Flea)market finds

I promised you to show you what I found at the Yaffa fleamarket, Carmel Market and surrounding stores, last week at our trip to Tel Aviv.

These doorknobs are new. They are handpainted and costed only 8 shekels a piece (2 dollars). I plan to use these on my custom made babyroom dresser, which I want to repaint after it did it's duty after 4 babies who are all grown now :)

This old enamel thingy I bought on the fleamarket and it was incredibly dirty. Dunno what I am going to do with it yet :)

This frame was new too, but I love the shape of it. It was 2 dollars.

The candle sticks are new too. The pair in the background is ceramic, the one in the front is wood. They were about 15 dollars together.

These two new cake serving plates are handpainted, Armenian pottery. The turqoise one has a new pattern that I didn't see before. I couldn't find any other items with that pattern, but I love it. The blue/white has an older pattern. I have more in the same pattern. Read more about this pottery (origins etc) in my earlier post here.They are around 6.50 dollars a plate.

This large plate I bought at the fleamarket also. Not new. Blue Nordic pattern by Meakin. I love blue/white kitchen stuff and am always on the look for something new.

This is a handmade new crochet table runner. My table is 1.80 meters long and the runner is larger. I love it! I bought this at the Carmel market at a small hidden stand of an old man, who only sold new, handmade, the most beautiful tablecloths and runners.

I hope you enjoyed my fleamarket/Carmel market finds!

Hoi Elsina,
Ik heb zeker genoten van je nieuwe aanwinsten. Die deurknoppen zijn echt een koopje hoor. Lekker genieten maar van je nieuwe spulletjes. Ik ben zaterdag geweest. Toen heb ik van dat aardewerk een pot gekocht in de vorm van een appel. Voor in de oven. Had ik al heel lang zin in,maar die pot kost 25 euro, en dat had ik er niet voor over. Wat denk je? Vond ik er zaterdag 1 op een rommelmarkt. Helemaal nieuw met de gebruiksaanwijzing er nog in. En weet je wat ik ervoor moest betalen?..........................
1 euro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whaaaa ik wordt er nog vrolijk van als ik eraan denk. Ga van het weekend lekker een appeltje in de oven bakken.
Lieve groet van Ester

Man, Elsina, I am really envious of the flea marketing you get to do! We don't have that here in this area. Have to go upstate. Fantastic finds!

Thanks for visiting my blog Southern Eclectic.

I love the candlesticks. They are beautiful. I found a frame at the Goodwill that looks a lot like the one you bought but mine is gold. I am thinking about painting mine either white or silver. I haven't decided yet.
