A Mid-Week Break

 

Te Koop = For Sale

Sometimes your junk is someone else's treasure, so get rid of it.

I definitely need a bike. This looks strangely frail though.
Ginnie Hart: I didn't look at it closely, Michael, but since it's been in Dutchland, I bet it's been put through the mill, so to speak. smile
I like it!!! What a great photo - seen through your eyes!
"Lighten up"... gotta be done!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I just LOVE the Dutch "yard sales." For one thing, they're in the most unusual places, like at the edge of the harbor in this case. We wouldn't have missed it for anything.
It is indeed Ginnie and this is a wonderful illustration!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. It's so fun to see how the Dutch do it!
Maybe I should have a junk sale. Nicely shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You'd be surprised what other people are willing to buy, Michael. smile

I enjoyed the language lesson, too, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Good for you, Ray. Yes...one of the first things I learned when I moved here was the difference between For Sale and For Rent. smile

Nicely seen Ginnie: stuff is constantly being sold & acquired
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris, and yes. I think we could safely say that the junk world is fairly "incestuous." grin

Heb jij deze fiets gekocht! Binnenkort zal die zijn verkocht! We Duitsers moeten steeds lachen als wet het woord 'verkocht' lezen.
Ginnie Hart: I hope someone bought the bike, Philine, because I'm sure they didn't want to take it home. Astrid just explained to me the German word for "sold." HA!

Great shot and I have to say that they had many good things for sale. This bike seemed to be in good shape.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. I wouldn't miss this "flea market" for anything each year because of how many good photo ops we get from it (as in your image today!). We even got a couple good buys from it, too!

I expect you have something like our Freecycle systems, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I think Amsterdam may have it, Lisl, but I'm not familiar with it elsewhere. I really like the idea of Freecycle! Whenever I buy a good DVD for €1, I feel like I've gotten it for free. smile
Looks to be in good condition Ginnie. Nice new tyre on the front
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Bill. The "flea market" at Open Harbor Day is one of the best ever.
Nicely shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.

Excellent sentiment Ginnie, we are desperately trying to de-clutter. Our bikes fall into the keep "just in case" section ;o)
Ginnie Hart: The older we get, the more we need to do it, Mike. I'll have to say that moving overseas really helped a lot for me, though I realize that's not the solution for everyone. HA!
Indeed, G!
Waste not want not.
So did you find any Dutch bonnet in that junk shop? wink
Ginnie Hart: Waste not, want not. I love it. The Dutch bonnet I found was on a woman's head which I decided I should probably not swipe! smile
Good advise. We have what is called the 70 mile yard sale here in the fall.
Ginnie Hart: 70 mile????? Oh, yes. I've heard of that. Can you imagine! I suppose if you went looking for one good buy, you'd find it. smile
My guess Ginnie was that it meant Tea Cup.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHA! You're way too clever, Chad.
excellent cadrage et traitement!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
I have a neighbour who thinks all my junk is treasure! He saves me many trips to the recycling place...smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it for you, Frank! smile

I always take a look when I happen on sales. Mostly car boot sales. Fortunately, I can say no!
Ginnie Hart: If you can't say NO, you end up worse than you were before, Louis. smile
With the advancing years we both keep thinking about getting rid of 'stuff', indeed we have two bikes just like this we shall no longer use, trouble is we are both hoarders!!
Ginnie Hart: Well, it took moving to another country for me, Brian, to get rid of almost everything I had, except for a few treasures and necessities. It was one of the best things I ever did! smile

It looks in good condition to me. The ladder looks good, too; it would help me reach new heights wink
Ginnie Hart: Everything looked good there, Alan. Nothing seemed like anyone's junk, to be honest! smile

Great picture - I wonder what else was Te Koop smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Anne. There was everything under the sun, which is one of the reasons why I like Open Harbor Day so much. You'd have a heyday finding treasures to monkey around with. smile
I like signs in other languages than English... especially in bike spokes.
Ginnie Hart: So fun, Jacquelyn, isn't it. smile
it makes for a great picture Ginnie... and thanks for the translation...
this person has many treasures waiting for that someone else....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Open Harbor Day here every May has table after table of treasures for sale, Peter. You're sure to find something you couldn't possibly live without. smile
Well at least that wheel looks in good order smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed!

It looks rather a nice bicycle.
Ginnie Hart: And what's funny, Cherry, is that I wasn't even paying attention to the bike but to the sign. smile

nice bike, i'll koop it smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Elaine.
It reminds me of the trash piles in my old neighborhood...
Ginnie Hart: Trash piles conjure up bonfires for me, Larry. I hope you were able to salvage something back then? smile
Ha! So true! Great composition!
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Robin, isn't it! Thanks. smile
