Junking in Lisbon

Every weekend you can find a place in Lisbon where a little street  flea market is set up.... A few quaint areas take turns hosting these street fairs, so there is always one within less than a 15 minute drive... Last Sunday my mom and I went to Belem, home to the incredibly beautiful Jeronimos Monastery (where I received my diploma from the Portuguese Catholic University) and the Monument to the Discoveries.

I brought home a few treasures...

(this is a portable bidet, and it was practically given to me... The question is, how do I take it home??!!)

Today, I went to this flea market and came home with these...


  1. Hi Isabel, looks like you are having a wonderful time back home. Wow, I can't believe someone gave you that bidet...hope you manage to get it home! Love all your flea market finds...that sweet little chandelier, the ephemera, especially those monograms, and that beautiful cruet set! Try not to make us too jealous of your trip! lol

  2. Isabel, I am swooning over your found treasures. Especially those incredible mirrored light sconces!!!

  3. Oh my, oh my! You lucky thing! Time with your family AND treasure hunting too! You really found so many special things...I am so happy for you! Enjoy your time together and all those flea markets too!
