Fiesole antique market

Market Sunday for me and Paola yesterday...we had our stall in the main square of Fiesole...



















...Fiesole is a small town close to Florence...

















...the cathedral...

















...cloister...

























...the little ancient church of Santa Maria Primerana...

















...noble crests on the facade of the City Hall...
A very nice and sunny day...we sold a lot of our old items, but found nothing special to buy!
Happy new week!!!

A few years ago we were in Florence and we found it a beautiful city!! We were five times (years) in Tuscany on holiday, but I've never read of a brocante market or a brocante marketstore or found it. Are there special events or addresses where you can buy it? I'm sure we will visit Italy the next years (maybe spring 2010), than it's always handy to know!!

Greetings, Ingrid

Hello Vale,
I do have some good memories of Florence where I went as a young girl and that trip contributed to big and happy changements in my life! :)
Those noble crests would be lovely garden-decorations I guess, but we shouldn´t try to take them off the wall here, haha.
Have a good day, best regards,
Marjolijn

Ciao Vale, bellissimi scorci di Fiesole!!! Il non trovare niente al mercatino dell'antiquariato fa parte del rischio di questo nostro "mestiere" di appassionate "chineuses".
