There is too much good thrifting in the area lately. German flea markets are called Floh Markts and they are treasure troves! Things for ,50 or 1 Euro! There are antiques and clothes, crystal and toys and furs. I went to an American and a German flea market today and got some great stuff! I also gave Aveline her own dollar and let her buy what she wanted. She came home with 4 old school Barbie Goldenbooks, a toy rhino, a seal beanie babie she named Ort-ort, and stuffed snake... with $.50 left!
What I found/bought:
Silk polkadot blouse 1euro!
Black silky top with pearl embellishments,1 euro!
1960's skirt and top set! $2
Purple skinny side zip Silence & Noise jeans (Urban outfitters), $3!
Grey leather purse, vintage from London, 1 euro!
Sailor kitty sweatshirt, $.50
German Click camera, 50 eurocents
Hot water bladder, 1,50 euro
German Wein Pitcher, handpainted, vintage, 7 euros.
Gingham skirt for Aveline, 1 euro
Sound of Music VHS, $1.50!
I have also recently been to the Airmen's Attic and picked up some free stuff! The Airmen's Attic is a place on base that is all donated stuff and everything in it is free. You are limited to one basket and one electronic item. I have gotten so much stuff and also donated back.
I don't have a job and try to do the best I can to save, amidst my shopping addiction! But I am always on the hunt for bargains... you never know what you might find.
