Hope you guys aren't getting weary of my Netherlands/Belgium posts! I still have a bunch more! It's just taking me a bit to post them all. We went to the Noordermarkt on our second day in Amsterdam. They apparently have a farmer's market on Saturdays, but we visited the flea market they hold on Mondays. It was in a really lovely neighborhood and just packed full of people. It had such a great energy! It was a bit more carefully "curated" in comparison to the first flea market we went to. Not as large and not as much junk to weed through (although I have no beef with junk, I love junk!). I was worried it was going to be more expensive since it was in the city, but it wasn't! (well for the most part. Those lovelies above were a bit pricey in my opinion.)
The best booth we stumbled onto gave me heart palpitations!
Vintage Scandinavian style fabric.
If you collect fabric, specifically Scandinavian and Dutch designs, you know they're hard to find in the U.S. for obvious reasons. And what you find online can be pricey. So I was thrilled to say the least. Most of it was scraps and I bought several pieces for 1-5 Euro a piece. I can't wait to use them. I need to renew my interest in quilting. Stat.
There was also a FABULOUS table full of trims and sewing notions. H-E-A-V-E-N. I snagged some of those trims, you better be sure of it!
This embroidered piece below has it's own story. For another post.
This was a day to remember - a must-see market if you ever visit Amsterdam.
