Heatwave Hallen

What a glorious weekend we just had. A heatwave in Amsterdam took temperatures up to 34°, my weather app tells me. But hot and muggy as it was, there were things to be done. Ij Hallen was on, and thankfully inside the hangers where is was a bit cooler than outside, and this time I was shopping for the office. We've just moved into a newly renovated space – it's gorgeous – but needs some finishing touches still. Cue; flea market treasure hunting to the rescue! I'm not going to share the items I found here, but you'll have to wait for the big reveal down the track. Here are the few items that crossed my path I couldn't resist. Above: set of 36 screen-printed wooden tiles that tell a story in 6 parts. Just beautiful, and in mint condition. I doubt they've ever been used. So when the time comes to tell Oscar about picking cherries to make jam, or how flower is milled, I'll be all set. €6.
Quite unlike me, I bought some records. Totally suckered in by the covers. They're lovely though, and were only €1 a pop.
Lastly, two Russian ambulance cars, and a set of domino's I just really got for the box. €6, and €2 respectively. Very happy with my haul, thank goodness I had my Dad and Edu on hand to help me get all my work treasure home!
