Fleamarket finds I treasure
I got this challenge from The Swedish Retro -blog retronu.blogg.se
It was originally a challenge for my other blog Sammy Rose, but I decided I wanted to show it here instead.
“Post your 5 best fleamarket-finds ”
Even though the rules were simple I couldn’t stick with them. Because I have been up with my newborn baby Frank all night I decided to make it a bit easier for me, so I will show you only 3 finds instead.
1. I found this “Girl with Puppy” picture at a Antique Mall in Lincoln Nebraska. Both me and Jens fell for her and packed her in our suitcase with us back home to Sweden. I love to buy framed pictures as travel memorabilia.
2. … and we have many times. Like this other great find. A photo from the “Gen´l Federation Women´s Clubs”. June 2-6 1958. Detroit. We found this at a Salvation Army, also in Nebraska, after several hours of walking. It was really to hot and to humid for a walk that day, but this find made it all worthwhile.
After playing “Where is Waldo” in the search for a man in the picture we have found TWO of them. One sitting at a table and one butler.
3. There is a local Flea market that I visit here a lot. It is located at the harbor of Ystad and the lady who owns it is a robust Polish lady with very high prices. But since I am there a lot she kind of likes me and once she was in a really good mood and let me have these chairs almost for free. I think that she thought they were really ugly. But I love them.
Join the discussion and tell us your opinion.

Jenny At Dos Family Answers: hah great! I wish I could pop on over and see what´s new.
And by the way. Let me know if you know any Lincoln -homes that would fit our Dos Visits. I would love to feature them. We plan on going to Lincoln later this year, so then I would love to have some homes to photograph.
cool stuff…. ;)
Damerna såg liiitebarska ut kan jag känna! :)
Stolarna var ju absolut grymt fina!
‘Girl with puppy’ looks amazingly like Shirley Temple.
Very nice! I really like the photo of all the ladies (although I can’t seem to see any men in it.)
Hi, I am loving all things Swedish right now and wondered if you could help me find your fantastic clogs? Thanks. You look adorable!

Jenny at Dos svarar: Hej! ja visst är det “cock-a-doodle-doo,
doodle-doo, doodle-doo.-kaninen” Jens har gjort den. Just nu står den faktiskt undanställd.
