Its a hard life Sundays too!!!!
I love going to flea markets and finding bargains .
My husband is a bookbinder, a master craftsman in his trade and I am proud to say he has been commissioned work for the Royal family, one piece in particular has been presented to the King of Spain.

Hence his interest in certain flea markets. I am also going to have a bash at selling some of my crochet and vintage bits I have accumulated over the years...well at least the bits I feel I can part with.
They have started up this very new flea market in Villafranqueza a little village just on the outskirts of Alicante and it is very craft orientated. I saw home made soap,pots of plants and herbs,crochet makes on three stalls, mostly hair pretties and toilet roll covers and the occasionally crocheted bag ( I think I can do something different than that) lots of stuff but just stuff and the occasionally interesting vintage item. Masses of paper back books and clothes,some wood carving furniture...very nice but costly and rightly so because it was extremely nice and a small clock stall which I was drawn to like a magnet but 2 clocks were modern imitations and one was a real jewel but far beyond my means.... sigh!
In all it was an eventful morning because we obtain information about setting up a stall from Vicky the organizer,costs are monthly and not too exorbitant,50€ per month and there are two days u can set up your stall every week ,Saturday and Sunday. This should keep my husband busy busy ...he is finding retirement empty.....from a workaholic to nothing is hard!
Afterwards we went to the Varadero restaurant in the port in Alicante and discussed what we had seen and with a cold glass of Jose Pariente white wine,opportunities and future prospects always seem lighter and brighter :-)
