vintage materials

Last Thursday I went with my friend to Kalamata to buy materials. There is an old shop over there where you can find vintage materials, blankets, tablecloths and other old stuff.

I love this kind of shops. You have to search in all corners to find the things you like.

The boy who is cutting my materials uses a pair of scissors from his great-grandfather. the scissors weigh two kilo's 

These are some of the materials I bought, ready to be cut. And in the end we head to the check-out!

In the old center of  Kalamata you can still find  more of these kind of old shops. Pity is that they're disappearing. They modernize them, not in a bad way nowadays, they look very fashionable, but the charm of the old is gone.


  1. Dit zijn leuke winkels om op zoek te gaan naar leuke lapjes. Ik heb ook zo'n winkel in de buurt waar ik af en toe heen ga!
    Maar de schaar is wel heel oud. Echt brocante!

    Lieve groet,

  2. Now that you've mentioned Kalamata I have an urge to eat olives! Yummy.
    It's such a shame the old stores are disappearing... thanks for the peep inside the one you visited. What character.
