While writing this down I’am in front of our fire place, warming up with a hot cup of tea, thick socks, wearing pyjama’s and yes… also gloves (with cutoff fingers ofcourse). Oh we had a great time at this giantic fleemarket, but we were soken wet because of the wind and rain outside. At the NDSM Werf you can’t just go in, there is so much beauty to see outside too!
About this fleemarket: it’s held in Amsterdam at the IJhalen at the so called NDSM Werf. The environment is really fantastic, an urban place with great wallart, rusty objects, vintage machines and industrial buildings. The fleemarket itself takes place at two of those buildings.
I am told that usually you don’t come home with your wallet still full of money. But our fingers were so cold, we couldn’t get a penny out of our pocket. The cockroaches above are set up by the way, otherwise I guess they were also frozen to death :-). Do you see at the right picture above the fantastic crane? Only for these industrial elements it’s worth visiting the IJ-hallen.
The fleemarket is held once a month. For sure I come back, and if it”s winter: well prepared wearing my Uggs, gloves and fake fur coat.
