They're really not that big....
Moving on (2 hours later)...... as I was walking around in my
For some reason my eyes rested on a pile of moss-green fabric wadded up on the ground. What was this? I picked it up and was surprised to see it was an 80' round tablecloth made with thick luxe velvet and finished with gold tone braiding around the edges. Wow - this is awesome, but it has to be expensive. This tablecloth looks like it was taken out of a castle 800 years ago - but yet it is in perfect condition.
"How much?", I ask (waiting for him to say 100e ++). But instead he's says (very confidently), "20e"!! What? No effing way. 20e? That's it?. SOLD.
(secret update: I inspected this when I got to my room and it is MINT CONDITION hand-made vintage. I also found a small hand written sales tag in the fringe that said 230e!!!! Poor guy, he probably got yelled at by someone who wanted their money...)

Vintage Tea Tin 3e - just had to have it. Guess what else I found on this shopping trip?? 2 BEER STEINS! Photos of the Giveaway Steins will be posted next!
As the dark clouds rolled in, my travel bestie Ms. Sandy and I headed for the car just in time to dodge the big fat raindrops. Such a perfect Saturday!
In reflection - the shopping theme for Saturday ended up being 'Castle-esque', which surprisingly made me miss my own home in Washington. I never realized how my earlier trips to Europe (this is my 6th visit) have had such an influence on my personal style and home decor. I've been creating my own German/French style castle without even realizing it!
As you look at your own surroundings, what do you think has inspired your own personal taste?
