Went flea marketing today at China Square, the first for 2010 and it does seem like there are more stalls and people now. Had a good hunt and loved what I found. A vintage blue glass candy/ cake tray popularly used during Chinese New Year in the late 60's and 70's. An elderly couple sold it to me at quite a good price and it was beautiful. This was definitely my find of the day !
Also found a nice white clutch bag saddled among toys. It looked like a mini little Mac and it costs me only $5 ! Think it goes well with a Chanel like rose brooch I saw at the next stall. Costs me $5 too :) And since China Square's major attractions are toys, I can't seem to leave the place without one. Bought 32 little mighty beans in a bag for just $5 ! They were the craze some years back and will bring back some good memories for my kids. And for $2, I just had to get a strange little donkey and a retro looking tin robot for $8.
The best part of flea marketing is really the hunt and the satisfaction of spotting something good and cheap amidst the clutter ! It is not always that you get something as I have left empty handed on a number of occasions. But then, there is always another time.
