Monday MoodLifters!

Photos I took at the Vintage Market (“Mercatino dell’Antiquariato”) in Milan (on Alzaia Naviglio Grande and streets nearby, last sunday of every month) and Alice (last photo), vintage lover.

The “Local” Tip: Some stall holders may shout at you telling you you can’t take pictures.. Don’t get too worried and take a couple quick shots: there’s not a specific reason for them doing it, they’re old and not use to the modern life and don’t understand at all how much their business could be helped by your images the internet!

Foto dal Mercatino dell’Antiquariato a Milano (si trova in Alzaia Naviglio Grande e nelle stradine adiacenti l’ultima domenica di ogni mese), e Alice (nell’ultima foto), una vintage lover.

Il consiglio da Local: Alcuni venditori alle bancarelle potrebbero intimarvi di non fare foto.. Non preoccupatevene e fate un paio di scatti veloci: non c’e’ una ragione specifica per cui lo fanno, sono solo un po’ anziani e slegati dalla vita moderna e non capiscono quanto potreste aiutare i loro affari con le vostre immagini su internet!

      Hey Natalie! Love the hat with flowers you wear on your page, did you do that yourself? I found a clutch bag at the vintage market that looked just the same (..But it was too pricey and the flowers were not in a very good condition :( .. Nice findings on your page, all those shoes are addictive ;) xx
