Queensday Flea Market Finds

April 30th is one of the best days to be a flea market loving Dutchie! On that day we celebrate Queensday. I don't know why, or how the tradition started, but on Queensday there are flea markets all over the country.

I visited one of the flea markets in my home town yesterday, with my mom. I found some really nice things this year!

Vintage Verkade Kwartet Spel

The first thing I bought was this vintage children's card game. It's called Kwartet in Dutch, it's like Go Fish. (Though I don't know if Go Fish is with playing cards only?) The box is a bit battered, but the cards are all in perfect condition. I only paid €0.50 for it!

Fujifilm Instax Mini 7 Camera

Then my find of the day, this Fujifilm Instax camera! Only €10! It came with some film too. I can't wait to use it! Last year I found an old polaroid camera, but I still haven't bought film for it, because I am not sure if it will work, and I didn't want to waste money on a camera that doesn't work. I should try that soon too though.

A Whole Lot Of Tins

And last but not least, lots of tins! I have a weakness for old tins, I just can't resist them! I think one of these is not actually vintage, but the other ones are. I love how they look all together.

To those of you from Holland: How was your Queensday? Did youi visit the flea markets? If yes, did you find anything nice?

  1. Congrats on your awesome finds!

    Yes, Go Fish is played either with children's matching cards or just a regular deck. :)

    And that camera looks awesome! Please post some pictures taken with it so we can see!

    I love those tins! I can see why you couldn't pull yourself away xD

    Sadly, I don't celebrate this day but it sounds so fun! Glad it was a great day for you :)
