More Flea Market Finds

051_flea market finds

It is a rainy, cold day in Oslo today, but luckily there was a flea market at the school just across the road from my flat so I found the right kind of jacket (In Norway we have a saying that goes like this; There’s is nothing called bad weather, only bad cloths) and then I walked the few hundred meters to the gymnastics hall where I knew the books would be. (It’s not the first time I’ve been to the flea market at this school of course)

I didn’t find as many cook books as last weekend, but on the other hand I found a couple of real classics, so all in all a good day along the bookshelves –  8 books, total cost 190 NOK = $ 29  – Ted
