Market Finds

For months I have heard about a large market in a near by town and have wanted to go see what they had. So Monday the family and I headed to Koprivnica to check out the market. The drive there was so slow, construction all the way made for a very slow hour. I did see some pretty houses with lovely flowers. Croatians love their flowers and 9 out of 10 homes are adorned with these beautiful window/balcony boxes.

The market itself wasn't overly impressive. It was basically just a huge amount or cars park here and there, really no order whatsoever. There were alot of venders with new Chinese stuff, who wants to look at that stuff anyhow? I was looking for the used, old stuff.
I did manage to find this transfer plate, I like the red and white. I actually seen this same plate here in our town but they wanted more for it and so I passed it up.
I was happy to find it in Koprivnica for 5 kuna less than I had seen it for. I think I paid $2 for it.
And then I spotted this cute little ceramic leaf. It's not super old but it's not new either. I like it, don't know what I'm going to do with it but I'm sure it'll find a place on a wall somewhere. Oh yea, after I clean off the sticky paper. :0)
We had a good time, drank some really yummy cappuccino in town and had a nice time.


  1. What great finds! I love the red and white plate too!! and the leaf--how unique!

  2. yes, I am lovin' the leaf plate too. Looks like flea market treasures! It's the best place to find unique stuff.

  7. You brought in a good haul, Tori! :o) If I lived nearby, I would definitely be stealing that leaf plate; I love it! :P

    (Okay, don't worry, I'm not really a thief... but I guess I am coveting, so I'm definitely still a sinner! :P You pray for me, hehehe!) ;o)

  8. The houses with the flowers are so beautiful. The plate is very lovely.

  9. Pretty stuff, Tori. Mabrook!

  10. I'm glad you found something to bring back from your market trip. :) I love the plates! The homes with the flowers are so pretty - I think I could learn a few tips on how to grow flowers from them. Do you grow flowers??? Any tips?? :) My aunt just sticks fake flowers into her flower beds -those are my kind of flowers, but sadly they don't have a fresh flower smell to them.

    Hi tori,
    The houses are beautiful. So bright and fresh looking. your bargains were a wonderful find. I loved the pink plate. It looks almost like a Limoge plate.

  14. Don't you just love it when you find "treasures" ! Love your finds.

  15. I have an ivy leaf dish similar to the dish you found. I have ivy wall paper in my bathroom so I used it for little soaps and a couple of decorative wash clothes.

    I love the red and white transfer. Beautiful!


  16. ohhhh...those pictures remind me so much of our years in Northern Italy Tori...and flower boxes everywhere, with hanging petunias or geraniums...simply beautiful...
    I love your plate...and leaf...great finds to me..

  17. beautiful finds, Tori....and those houses with all the window boxes and blooming flowers are wonderful!

  18. My sister has a set of blue and pink plates like those, I think they are like those. She loves them. The leaf is really special, I think, but I like things like that. The cappuccino sound good and family fun, I am all for that. Have a great week, Tori. connie
