La soffitta nella strada!

Every year on August an antique market takes place around the streets and squares of the ancien town of Sarzana. For 2 weeks from 5 p.m. to midnight, lots of stalls show old and ancient pieces of furniture, fabric, glass, china, jewels....

...garden acessories...

















...some deckchairs...

















...a nice old palace painted in black and white stripes...


















...old fabrics and linen...

















...old hat-boxes and cases...

















...the window of a lovely shop...

























The prices are high, but it's a very nice place for a walk or nice food...lots of lovely restaurants and lively atmosphere! I'll show you what I bought in the next post!

I'm not very active in the blogland in these days...I'm always on the beach and I like to spend my time outside! But I'm always thinking about you!!!
Enjoy a great week end!

Hello Vale,
thank you for your lovely comment! Yes, we are going to spend two weeks at Cavallino near Venice. We have been to many other beautiful places in Italy such as Tuscanny, la Costiera Amalfitana, the French Riviera around Bordighera, buth with kids it's very good at Cavallino and not that far to go. Too far from Lucca, unfortunately! On our way back we are going to spend 2 nights in Riffian near Merano. We like the Trauttmannsdorff Castle with its wonderful garden! The last two years we visited la Riviera nell Brenta with its villas (Villa Contarini, Barquesa Valmarana, la Malcontenta, Villa Foscari, Villa Pisani...), and last year we spent one day at Salò at the Lago di Garda. You live in such a splendid country, lucky you!
Have a good time, enjoy the summer!
Hugs,
Angelika

Cara Vale,

Buon ferragosto - presumably on the beach. Love to see there is still beautiful linen to buy. It is a pity vintage and antiques are so expensive in this country. I bargain in Sweden. Bacione e buon divertimento! Ingrid in Umbria

Hello Vale

What a wonderful place to go to. I love places like that. It looks like they sell very good quality things. That is one of the things that I like about Italy, their night time markets. So much atmosphere!
Have a great weekend!

Hello Vale,

what a beautiful place to find some treasures. I have a real passion for fleamarkets. One week ago I was on a very small but interesting fleamarket in Colmar and bought a pretty old majolika dish. and the cafetieres emaillee are just wonderful there.

best greetings from germany and enjoy the beach life,
