Saturday found us wandering about Trier, Germany. And wouldn't you know, much to my husband's dismay, there was another Flohmarkt in their Stadtzentrum (a flea market in their city center) . I'm beginning to think this might be a regular thing in German cities as we saw one in Nurembourg last weekend and now this one in Trier this weekend. However, hands down, the one in Trier was much more intriguing. I had to all but bury my hands in my pockets to keep from snatching up the Patisserie platter and dome pictured above. I've regretted it a couple of times since, so I know I will go looking for one soon.
The photo below is just incredible. I love how all of the shapes, textures, and colors add interest to the collection. My father smoked a pipe when I was a child and I have nothing but fond memories of both the smell and sight of a good pipe. You don't see many men smoking a pipe nowadays; I wonder if it will make a comeback? Look at these beauties, one is just more fascinating than the next.
