Treasure or Trash?

22 Jun

Every third Sunday in Cortona, the antique market comes to town. Trash or treasure, it’s in the eye of the beholder, yet it brings many antique followers to town. I keep hoping I’ll find a da Vinci, but alas, none so far.

Children’s books:

children's books,

Remember the Brownie?

Remember the Brownie?

Victoria No 2 – 1825 small sewing machine, still working!

Serving bowl?

Actually this is Snoopy but the Madama looks right~

And then our long walk, with vistas like this everywhere… makes exercise enjoyable.

Heading to a party tonight. As I close, someone is playing lovely music outside, and it is flowing in with the summer breeze.

      Staying on Via Nazionale – a bit noisy, but ok. Vera is in Brazil but have already spent time with C and F and will pass along your greetings.

    We were there a few years ago and loved it. We attended an Andre Rieu concert there also. We attended this lovely market, it was so much fun. Want to go back again soon

    I’ve enjoyed so many of your posts, but this one brought tears to my eyes. I lived in a small Tuscan town (Ponte Ali Stoli, up the hill from Figline val’Darno, about 40 minutes from Firenze) in the mid ’70’s. Some of the many wonderful photos I have were taken at a flea market. Thanks for the beautiful memories and for the journey you’re allowing me to take with you. Mille Grazie!

      Laura, thanks for the lovely note. I love taking photos and writing about Italy, and it is even more enjoyable for me knowing others are along on the journey. Mille Grazie a te!
