Monastiraki Flea Market

Standard

While in Athens, I was able to go to the famous Monastiraki Market. It was my idea of a perfect Sunday. We woke up early, took the metro to the Monastiraki Station, woke ourselves up over a cappuccino at an open air cafe while watching the hustle and bustle of the market enfold right in front of us.  People watching is one of my favorite past times so I felt right at home. Every Sunday at around 6am, antique dealers and local vendors arise early to fill the streets in hopes to sell their most treasured possession. It’s simply amazing. You will find the most intricate turkish rugs, pocket watches, candle stick holders, light fixtures, flower-pot,  handle knobs, and the list just goes on and on. While meandering around all morning, I made note that the Monastiraki Market would be a perfect place to find those ‘rare finds’ when T&M takes off.

Just the most beautiful pottery

I wonder what is inside?

I was obsessed with these. simply gorgeous.

Welp, I won't be learning Greek anytime soon:)

It would take a lifetime to get through all these

Only a matter of time

So many wonderful trinkets!

The perfect daybed

I really wanted this but the guy was charging 40 euro!

Lusting over.

I would love to put this in a child's room someday:)
