Marché aux puces

Giving the name of this blog, it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that I love flea markets. The best one in Brussels is on the Place du Jeu de Balle. Not that I would buy much but to walk over it on a sunny Sunday morning is one of the most relaxing things to do.

The very best  is to run my fingers through the boxes with buttons – it’s like reaching into a treasure and selecting the most exquisite pieces – and of course watching people buying and selling stuff of an amazing ugly- and uselessness.

Vives les puces au marché!

  1. I agree that flea markets ar wonderful place to go on a Sunday morning. Here is not only all the world but also all the pieces that someone doesnt want but to someone else will be a treasure they have been looking for.
    One day I will find that missing Rembrandt.

  2. Good luck for the Rembrandt! I’m only searching for a Kandinsky; even print would do but I haven’t been lucky yet. 🙂
