Flea Market Finding

Found this beautiful pair of art nouveau bronze candle sconces at the flea  market in Rome. Just love them.

Combining them with white candles, making a nice contrast with the black lampshades we already have, it  gives a pretty and classy touch to our guestroom.

Its always fun to visit flea markets.
My advise is to go early (I know it`s hard on Sundays! ) but it`s the best time to find real “treasures” and to get a great deal.

Open on Sundays only from aprox. 6.30 until 2pm
Catch bus Nr. 75 from Termini station or tram Nr.8 from Largo Argentina until Viale Trastevere.
As on all crowded places, watch out for Pick Pockets!
