Flea market, peddlers market, garage sale, yardsale, Flohmarkt, targ de vechituri.
I've always liked the flea markets, but I've always had a feeling of shame when I went there.
Shame for indulging in the nostalgic, poetic atmosphere and in a way disregarding the reality
of a flea market, which in fact it's not that romantic. In the flea markets from Berlin there were indeed a lot of young bohemian people selling stuff for the fun of it, but in the flea markets from Bucharest most of the people are pretty poor.
However, all those objects having belonged to various people and now brought together by accident have a certain poetry and their silent beauty.
