Thrifting Treasures!

During the christmas holiday I visited a lot of thriftstores and a fleamarket aswell. I was really happy to have some time for those treasure hunts again. Of course I found some great pieces, real treasures!
The first treasure is the most beautifull beautycase I've ever seen. I found it at a local fleamarket. It's in perfect condition and it was a real bargain. It's really big aswell, which is nice because I have lots of stuff I can use it for.
Mirror, mirror on the wall ... Don't you guys just love this mirror? I'm totally in love with it, as you guys know by now I'm a huge fan of anything baroque and frilly. This one was another bargain, only 6 euros at a thriftstore. I did had to walk around all day with this mirror in my hands while shopping, but I had done that before with a table.
Ok, this plate isn't a huge treasure, but I just love the flowers. It's big enough to get proper use out of it and it only costed 2 cents. I mean, why not give it away for free?! 
Gosh, I can't wait untill exams are over and I can go on a hunt again. Today I had exam number 2 and it wasn't that good. I was still very tired from my last exam. The good news is that I have a chance at improving my grades next semester. I never was a big literature fan...
My next exam is friday, again so little time for so much things to learn...

  3. I have to give a vote for that spiffy plate! I'm seeing it on a bathroom counter with small grooming items clustered on the plain side. Love the case as well!

  21. Thanks everyone for the lovely comments!
    @ Siel: Dankjewel voor het compliment :)
    In Antwerpen zijn er redelijk wat leuke 2ehandswinkels. Je hebt de Jutka en Riska op de Nationalestraat, iets verder heb je dan ook nog de Tipi's. De Sussies ligt in een zijstraatje van de Groenplaats. Op de Vrijdagmarkt heb je de My Ohm en 1 straat verder heb je de Episode. Als je op de Meir de straat aan de Puma-winkel in gaat dan heb je daar de Think Twice en deze hebben ook nog een winkel vlak aan het Franklin Roosevelt plein. In de Kammenstraat is er ook nog een winkel van Spullenhulp dacht ik. Er zijn er natuurlijk nog verschillende andere, maar daar ga ik niet veel henen omdat ze meestal niet echt iets leuk hebben.
    Ik hoop dat je hier iets mee bent?
