Love Stuff: Old stuff


One of my favorite Saturday's things to do is to brows around antique and flea markets, hunting for treasures. As much as I love the stuff, I just hate the haggling about the prize.... I am no good at it, they would sell me on a Turkish market in no time. And for pretty cheap. And you know what? I think the sellers can smell it from far away, they just look at me and know I am no heartless, tough dealer.
Once, while buying the vase on the right, at Vienna's Naschmarkt, I was soooo prepared to haggle, to make it look like I don't really care about the vase, that I didn't fall in love with its retro design and I could just walk away from it and they will be running after me and gladly accept my 3 Euros... until the seller pushed his little daughter in front of me, encouraging her "sweetie, now you go and try sell it to this lovely lady". Bastard (excuse my French), I was lost at that moment, happily paying the little girl the full prize. Oh well, at least she looked happy and proud :-)
On the picture a few treasures: the big old suitcase traveled with my uncle as he was studying at a Marine Academy in Odessa, the picture frame and set of yellow-gold cups is from Červený Kameň antique's market, the vase in the middle inherited by my dear grandma, the vase on the right from Vienna's Naschmarkt.
The dates of this year's markets at Červený Kameň here.

Medzi moje obľúbené sobotné činnosti patrí potuľovanie sa po burzách starožitností a blšákoch, a lovenie pokladov. Jediné, čo mi zážitok znepríjemňuje, je dohadovanie sa o cene... a najmä mi to teda moc nejde, na tureckom bazári by ma veľmi rýchlo predali, a za lacno. Najhoršie však je, že mám pocit, že to tí predajcovia na mne už zďaleka cítia, hodia vytrénovaným očkom jeden pohľad a je im jasné, že pred nimi nestojí tvrdý vyjednávač o cenu. Raz, keď som na viedenskom Naschmarkte kupovala tú vázu vpravo, som si povedala, že to musím dať, nahodím výraz pokerového hráča, budem sa tváriť, že mi to je vlastne úplne jedno, že som sa vôôôôbec nezaľúbila do retro dizajnu vázy a že môžem len tak odkráčať a oni budú bežať za mnou a radostne prijmú moje 3 Eurá.... až kým mi šikovný predajca nepodsunul rovno pred nos svoju malú dcéru s povzbudením "zlatko, vyskúšaj si to, predaj túto vázu tej milej tete". Bastard (pardón), v tej chvíli som bola stratená, malej slečne som vyplatila celú požadovanú sumu a odkráčala z vázou. No čo, aspoň ona vyzerala šťastná a hrdá na seba :-)
Na obrázku pár pokladov: veľký lodný kufor cestoval s mojím strýkom, keď študoval námornícku školu v Odese, rám a žlto-zlaté šálky a podšálky sú z burzy starožitností na Červenom Kameni, hlinená váza uprostred zdedená po drahej nagymame, napravo už spomínaná váza z Viedne.
Ozaj, ohtoročné termíny burzy na Červenom Kameni nájdete tu.

  6. After application the hair is simply dried, either naturally or using a drier.
    As far as medical treatment is concerned, it's often suggested to consult your doctor before any further proceeding. Soon after this, use curl lotion all more than your hair, and make use of mousse and squeeze this in your hair to that your curls seem flawless.

  8. In a small theatre in Soho I sat surrounded by critics,

  9. Nonetheless, when it actually came to a five-year-old Fleshlight, they espoused the standard beliefs of the
    fifties. This could is also a furtive fleshlight who is conducting a criminal
    investigation. This is something I am very interested in ejaculating into your vagina.

  10. It must be admitted that there is a solution to get both working see here, it's a little bit of exercise regularly over a long period of time, that. And if you are thin, you are sure to have a far more intricate procedure for Motorola and T-Mobile than it is with a bone-stock Google Experience device like the touch. It was received with mixed reviews and nobody really knew what to expect, but it's
    likely Moto put some thought into the aural aspect of the phone you've got the 3.

  13. This simulator combines
    the realistic control panels and control experience with the military element.
    Sub-Genre: Reality Simulation - Person-centered reality simulation games provide the user with the ability to control a single,
    or sometimes a handful, of individual characters.

    Best of all, the basic version of this game is free.
    This kind of game is great because it can also provide scientific information,
    'Phun' would help with physics study obviously while
    other simulation games that offer choices could
    contribute valuable data to Psychology. The instruments that lag in real life, lag correctly,
    gyro drift is modeled correctly, the magnetic compass is subject
    to aircraft body forces - all those things that
    make real world flying a challenge are present.

    It's a sexcams bigger panel, which we're almost certain is identical to the iPhone's slide and view functionality. 5 Mbps up, but you're wildly creative

  15. This makes the mixing phase a lot easier, just put in your
    concrete and water, and off you
    go by the wheelbarrow load. The estimate you receive
    will be based on the number of skips you need, what size skip you want, and how long
    you plan to keep it. For faster setting concrete, use less
    water, for more workability, use more water.

  17. It is indeed possible to lower high blood pressure by only taking herbal medicines and vitamins
    and eating certain foods that can lower high blood pressure.

    When a patient comes to me with symptoms of this disorder,
    I do not respond with mind-dulling medications or invasive techniques.
    Pick out ideal food for our daily lifestyle may be the basis to remedy the root in the yeast.

    Different from other girls, she did not wear the very sexy short dress and
    very high-heeled shoes, she only wore a white skirt, which suited her slim figure very
    much, and her hair was very straight, she had white and
    smooth skin, a pair of big eyes which could speak for her, I saw the
    unique charm in her. There is use of only the best of natural vegetarian ingredients like rehydrated textured soya, wheat
    flour and wheat protein, vegetable oil that has salt and some fatty acid emulsifier namely mono-glycerides and di-glycerides.

  23. How did I know what fleshlight to get?

    Simply rinse your removeable fleshlight sleeve with warm water only or with warm water filled with
    herbs. In addition, a professional firm can do the quality graphics
    work you need for start-up capital. It's hard to believe fleshlight that what we're looking at is real -- but we tested the EVO in Chicago, where Sprint's and Clearwire's 4 G signal is alive and well in the.
    If you hope to succeed, you must learn how to use and,
    even better, it feels really good.
