Flea Market at la Corte dei Miracoli in Venice...more pics!


We enjoyed the flea market at The Church of Miracles in Venice
 so much that we made our way back there on Sunday morning...
...all by ourselves! :)


As we rounded the corner and the flea market came into view...
I felt my heart flutter...


It seems no matter where in the world I happen to be...
...if I am under the sun, with tables full of treasures to discover...
I am happy and content!


So, without further chatter...
with my little old, pocket Canon SD600 in hand...
here is some of what I saw:










 Even, Mr. Flea found something he wanted...





































Oh my!






Oops!  There's Dad...
I think he's had enough flea market for the day...
...time to find a place to sit down and have a cappuccino 
and a chocolate croissant!

It was so much fun to visit this flea market in Venice...
...and now you have too!
:)

Thank you Walter, Daniela and Alfredo!

Oh Laura,
I can't think of a better place to visit a flea market. We must get back to Venice very soon. It is one of my most favourite and magical places of all.
.....and what treasures....the white gloves, the chandelier wall sconce, the old letters, the white china butter dish, the old books, the perfume bottles....all of these things I can see being used behind those beautiful old shutters in Venice.
How come I didn't see a flea market when we were there ? You are one lucky girl !! XXXX

Chris said...

How did you ever find out about the flea market there? I have been so frustrated over the years trying to find locations and dates in foreign places? Do you have a great and accurate source for brocantes & fleas? Thank you so much for this fabulous post!

Lost in Provence said...

Oh this made me dream! I love our brocantes here in Provence but this one seemed so fabulous! I saw something in nearly every photo that would have tempted me. Thank you for a charming post!

It's been so fun seeing Italy through your eyes. I'm a sucker for a good flea market, and to visit one in Venice...be still my heart! I would have needed a big crate shipped home with all of my treasures! I hope you got a few for yourself!

So,just what did you buy. I'm certain there was something special that spoke right to you!

tawnya said...

I am curious, how many boxes did you ship home? How many luggages pieces did you fill? How could you decide? The photos are wonderful. I feel like I was there with you, only I didn't get to buy.

Did you know that Sue over at Vintage Rescue Squad is looking for photos for her next calendar? She wants photos from flea markets and treasure hunts...your pictures are always so great, I'd love to see one (or two) next year in print!

Privet and Holly said...

Oh.My.Goodness!
Thank you for taking
us along on your delicious
romp through this lovely
flea in Venice. My 16 year
old loved Venice the most
on a class trip to Italy last
summer. I have only been
to Rome, but can't wait to
go back to Italy, some day.
Now the big question: did
you buy anything??

Happy November

xx Suzanne

PS: Your dad looks so sweet.

All the best, Steffi

Florence said...

I know the feeling when you happen upon a flea market, three years ago I was in Germany, experienced the very same thing. However some of the vendors were not happy about me taking photos. It was interesting, I did get the photos I wanted, once I realized what was happening there. Thanks for sharing. Florence

Can you tell me what month you visited the market? Leaving for Venice in a day and cannot find the market's schedule. Afraid it's not open during summer. Help?
