vintage flea market


If it’s spring, it’s flea market time in Helvetiaplatz! Pretty much in the middle of the redlight district of Zurich, every Saturday starting in March will bring together professional or amateur hagglers for another happy round of exchanging valuables. I’m not saying the stuff there comes cheap, no way, yet still the market is filled to the brim with almost everything you can imagine (except tanks or livestock) and the lookers are pouring. I must have missed the market for too long but I noticed a new category of visitors - the young hipster and/or boho looking for vintage extensions of their selves or just browsing through shabby vinyl covers. Which I did as well thank you very much.

I’m not sure what’s the best Swiss beer match but a Perla Nera from Flims brewery shall do it. A wonderful toffee caramel nose with a rather disappointing watered down taste (and looks), this imperial stout with its great start only managed to confuse me.

Flea Market Finds Throw Back 1

This pin of Arale Norimake from Dr.Slump cost me a dollar and is one of my favorite finds.

I got this pin waaaaaaaaay before I even had the idea of creating this blog. I believe it only cost me a dollar.

To me, this pin is irreplaceable since it is so difficult to find Dr.Slump merchandise.
