Fleamarket finds






The fleamarket we went to on Saturday was full of great treasures (no wonder those Norwegians were whacking each other out of the way in order to get in first!) I managed to find some candlesticks (iittala I think) Figgjo Flint egg cups, a milk glass to match my Swedish milk and a lovely table cloth (I dont have a round table but what the hell, I could not resist the Marimekko style design!) I also managed to snag many English books (so expensive in book shops here) and Henrik found a brand new bike helmet, all for under 200kr (around 20 quid!)

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog!
    Sounds like you're settling in to life in Oslo. Your little flat looks adorable. Good luck, and I'll be stopping by!

  8. I think that they tablecloth may be a "Christmas tree carpet" - one to let your Christmas tree stand on? I can't estimate the size of the cloth from the photo and I may be wrong, but I think I've seen something similar being used for that purpose?

  9. Katrine- I think you are right! I put it on the table as a cloth and Henrik starting laughing, telling me, "you cant put that on there, its only September and it's for Christmas!" (only I dont think he realised it was to sit the christmas tree on either!)
    Thanks for letting me know!!
