My life strategies can be conflicting. My goal is minimisation; however I still keep everything that I can. I hate throwing things out. Old, broken, but maybe one day it will be useful. If I don’t have a use for something I will definitely try to use it in one of my projects. I am very sentimental towards old junk.
Most items in that specific flea market are already sorted; there is no junk like in most Sunday markets outside town. Sellers are equipped with knowledge and origin of their merchandise. Sometimes they will even let you know about special magical powers and attributes of these items. Prices are not so low. You can forget about finding something for 1 euro.
Old things are looked after and repaired and count as antiques. Or maybe they are antiques. I wouldn’t know. I am a little naive when it comes to these things, especially when I see dolls, statues and coins I adore, which are said to be pre WW2. I am not going to become an antique’s collector. The old map and cat collection that we have at home is enough for me.
It’s worth it to pay a visit to the Dublin Flea Market. Even for the amazing atmosphere alone. Part of the street and two huge depots are dedicated to house these amazing treasures. A great place to visit when it is raining outside. Speaking clear English is essential because many of the visitors are tourists, so communication is not an issue.
Every last Sunday of the month crowds of people gather in the morning to visit this place, it is hard to miss. You will hear people speaking languages from all over the world, it gets so load around all the stalls. You will get super excited when looking at the intricate style of the little things; it will spin your head
