This weekend marked another of Arezzo’s awesome attractions: the monthly Fiera Antiquaria.  It is Italy’s oldest and largest antiques fair with the entire center of town – like here in Piazza Grande  – transformed into a gigantic open air market.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

Merchants sell everything from vintage jewelry, books, paintings, furniture and linens.

???????????????????????????????

We have never bought anything of substance really.  A Pinocchio wood-block print here, an antique toy there, a vintage deck of playing cards for Scotty. The giant armoires, tables and bronze statues will have to wait.

???????????????????????????????

Although yesterday, Lulu really thought she needed a spare part for a chandelier.  You never know.

???????????????????????????????So, while we leave for Ireland just six short days from today, perhaps this fall, we will come back to Arezzo during the first weekend of the month. And pick up something old for our new place.

Maybe an antique mirror.  To reflect our new adventures.

Notice whose lower half is also reflected..? ;)

Notice whose lower half is also reflected..? 😉

Because, in life, as with chandelier bobbles, you just never know.

We love you, Arezzo.

Baci, Gina
