After a week driving across Europe visiting antique markets and wholesale dealers, we’ve finished buying a wonderful selection of antique furniture, chairs, and vintage chandeliers. We’ll still visit another indoor market to focus on smaller decorative items, such as Blue Delft ceramics, vintage chalkware and enamelware, and antique religious treasures. However, as we no longer need the large van to pick up furniture, we’ll trade it for a smaller car. We stop to fill up the gas tank and discuss the price of diesel gas in Europe – which is actually cheaper than regular gas. If you hate the cost of filling up your gas tank in the US, wait until you see the prices in Europe!
Now don’t you feel better about filling up here in the US? Not really? Oh well, I tried. Be sure to come back for the next episode of the Antiques Buying Trip video series as we’re going to take a tour of a 15th century brewery!
