Fleamarket

The Waterloo square market in Amsterdam,  dating from 1893, is the oldest fleamarket of the Netherlands, With 300 market stalls, six days in the week there is a lot to see and to find.

That photo intrigues me.



A creative way to present DVD's and CD's
Linking to "Our World Tuesday"

This photo is not mine but made last week by a fellow working in the Town Hall next to the market.The same market stall owner as above, made this tribute to the beloved Lord Mayor of Amsterdam who had informed the people of Amsterdam the day before he is suffering a deadly illness. He has decided to continue his work als long as possible and could look from his office room down to this heartwarming message,

    Sorry to hear your Mayor. He must be very dedicated if he plans to continuing working.
    In my posting today that was no bird sitting on the fence. It is a dead catfish.

  8. Interesting finds can be found at fleamarkets. I noticed an old wash board in the first photo, reminded me of my grandmother who used them when I was a kid.

  16. I remember when my mum was still with us she absolutely loved visiting the flea-markets so much. I haven't really been since she passed. What a lovely tribute to the Lord Mayor, can we hope for a miracle and he improves a little?
