Flea Market Finds

I haven't posted anything for Flea Market Finds for ages, but yesterday I finally went to our local flea market and brought home 3 wonderful things.


Metal candle stick. It will be perfect for the bedroom.
Ceramic garlic jar. Isn't it a cutie?
And finally the thing that has been on my thrifting list for a very long time - old typewriter. I found this dusty Underwood in the darkest corner of the market and dragged it home. It needs major cleaning, but I think I can handle it. According to the serial number, it's almost 100 years old. And the coolest thing is - it has Finnish keyboard.
I'm very happy with my finds and I think I need to visit the flea market more often.

To see other finds of the week, visit Sophie.

Such great finds Jana! And the typewriter is a wonderful nostalgic Topper! Finnish keyboard even. It looks great. Hope to get a letter typed on this beauty, some fine day! ;-) thanks for sharing your finds. Have a great Sunday. Cor, me and your fossile necklace are going for a motorbikeride! x

Especially the nostalgic typewriter caught my attention. Yes, how wonderful flea markets are! I cannot wait to rammage through them this coming 30th. Hahaa! :D Wish u are here with me, then we both can just leave the men alone and we go shopping.

Thank you, ladies! I love my new typewriter. I dragged it to the bathroom and now trying to vacuum it first. :)
@ Mari I totally understand. I've been looking for one for ages and they are not very common in Finland. Just got lucky this time. :)
@ Nancy I need to get the ink tape somewhere and try to use it. ;) Have fun motorbikeriding, dear! ;)
@ Swee I think we should really do it some day! Leave the men to chill in the sun, while we hit the stores! So cool! ;)

Great finds indeed! I especially love the old typewriter :)
I wish we had a stronger Flea Market tradition here in Porto, it's so much fun to visit one! We never know the treasuries we'll find...

I was so happy when I finally found my Underwood typewriter too. I almost did the "Happy Dance" in the store.
