marketus maximus






So, here are most of the things from the market this week.
I love these books, my Grandma had a few and I always admire them...we bought about 30 of these!
They are all beautiful colours and the writing on the covers are all different. One day when I have enough wall space, i want to frame some of them!







We spent a lot more than usual...we bought some fixtures and fittings for the new Tokyo ladies/wedding jewellery shop, like this chandelier (needs a bit of work but its all there!) which wasn't cheap but will look great.




more books!




a funny headscarf and some old unworn leather clog liners, lovely French dealer gave them to me for free! (I think he knows Nao but I cant speak French so I'm guessing!).



a lovely deep purple Haori.







French Trilby hats.



I always wanted one of these, but they are always too expensive, luckily I got this one for a great price and it also plays my favourite tune, Lara's Theme from Doctor Zhivago. The little bird swings about when its playing...cute huh?




nwaahhh!




This little fella is also for the wedding shop, just puuurfect with rings on his plate!
I bought the cushion at the market too, I love the green colour in it.





most expensive, but just right for the shop, a very fine Victorian display cabinet with mirrored back.



more expensive fixtures...four brass wall lights, all with vintage fittings, very nice for the shop too!




a giant clam for the shop.



and a very spherical Robin for Crimbo!
Goodness, its a lot actually! we also bought some silver jewellery bits and bobs, ands some vintage ring boxes...all destined for Tokyo.
So, NEXT MARKET!
