Today it is Queensday in the Netherlands, a national holliday. It started last evening at 6 pm. By that time the people could sell their stuff on the streets, which mostly is done in the centre of the city. I went to have a look because I never went the evening before Queensday and it was already crowded with people! I didn't see a lot of the stuff being sold though since I was so happy to find this huge suitcase:
And in it were 2 HUGE books that were actually old newspapers(a year edition) that were binded into two books.
Told you it was HUGE!
One was from 1919 and the other one from 1930. I nearly peeded my pants when I saw them! I took the suitcase as well because no way I could carry it otherwise, but it was worth the hernia. So no looking around for me anymore....and I was just there! Back to the badmobile and on my way home again to show DH what I found. He just let out a deep sigh and was shaking his head. Well.... anyway it makes MY heart sing and that is all that matters :)
This morning we got up around 6.30 and went away into the city with the kids to see if we could score some more items. I was looking for vintage stuff, which I always have a hard time finding, but I guess it was my lucky day because this is what I came home with :)
Couldn't resist this little owl.
Love the colors of this tin
LOVE the colors and design on this tin
I think this is the BEST score of the day since it was Sooooooooooo cheap and so much! A whole bunch a vintage cards, I am in love ...seriously!
Here is a close up:
Old card games , also with vintage images on them, love the coca cola one!
The one thing not vintage but actually new :) are these socks.
Loved this image and this is an image from inside:
More old books
And last but not least this package:
Which is old music paper, YEAH!
My DH doesn't understand that I want to buy this stuff, he thought I was busy cleaning out the house, getting rid of things, but come on...could you resist this :)
