On Saturday we went to see the local Antique Market here in our village. Last year was our first visit; this new location near the shops was nicer. I noticed two little teddy bears sitting on a chair.
A sweet little sewing machine with original packing. Too bad I don't collect sewing machines, not even small ones.
Forks and knives and kitchen stuff.
Cups and saucers and glasses, really rather vintage than antique. Many people collect coffee cups, especially Finnish cups.
There were old copper coffee pots, at a reasonable price.
An embroidered towel rack curtain, to hide the kitchen towels from view.
This one is for you, Simone: half a stall filled with jugendstil embroideries. I think most of them were recently made after original patterns from the beginning of last century.
Another popular collectible, blue and white butter jars from last century, manufactured by Arabia, the best known Finnish ceramics factory.
I found one pretty little jug, but the price was about six times the sum I was ready to pay. Luckily Mr. K. found a fly fishing rod at a bargain price.
Nothing handmade by me this time? Yes, there is. Yesterday Mr. K and I picked a small bucket full of sour cherries from a tree planted by birds, and I cooked 25 small jars of cherry jam. Yum, yum!
