Vintage Bliss - rare objects!

When it comes to thrift stores and vintage goodness, I assumed Germany would be the MOTHERLAND of treasures. I envisioned streets lined with antique shops and discount thrift stores,  just begging for me to buy their wares.

Much to my dismay the elusive thrift store has been just that – elusive

Come to find out people in Europe dispose of their unwanted treasures via ‘FLEA MARKETS’.  The first Saturday of every month, the country turns into one big yard sale. Wow – that’s even better since the prices should be low as people will  not want to haul their old stuff back home.  

Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon this ‘CURIOUSITY SHOP’ on a teeny-tiny back road in a random Bavarian village. I have no idea what the prices were since I was trying to be super-sleuthy with my photo taking.

Check out the unique finds!

Doesn't the dial look odd?

Wood?? Very odd and interesting.

Perfect for the hallway.

I was obsessed with this. It's a cat thing.

Old style without the modern paintings and 'gingerbread'

Isn't this incredible? Probably a bit creepy for the house, but
amazing detail and craftsmanship. Why would a church ever
get rid of this? Stolen maybe?

Gorgeous chandaliers. I would put this in my bathroom.
I can't wait to visit the flea market! What are some of the unique/vintage things you have found?
