  1. Her er der serveret for turisterne, der bliver sluset ind fra krydstogtskibene. Udvalget er skræddersyet: kongeligt porcelæn, sølvtøj og krystal, smykker, gamle duge og legetøj. Ikke noget der får det til at gibbe i en gennemsnits Københavner, og slet ikke til prisen, der er helt oppe og kysse loftet. Jeg kommer der alligevel, for især på solskinsdagene er det hyggeligt at slentre igennem med en kop kaffe, og suge til sig af atmosfæren. Blot skal man abstrahere fra de til tider uforskammede sælgere, der tydeligvis ikke er der for at hygge sig. Det er det sure med det søde, her, men man vænner sig til det.

  2. Thorvaldsens Flea Market is one of the most beautiful market in Copenhagen – just in front of the Thorvaldsen Museum and close to Christiansborg Palace.
    Every Friday & Saturday, you’ll find the friendly vendors offering a wide range of items, with only the best in vintage, retro, silver, modern design, danish porcelain by Royal Copenhagen, Ceramics, Montblanc Pens & Pencils and much more.. Something for each taste. The flea market have thousand of visitors each season and it´s a must for lovers of flea markets with option for quality finds.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
