A Day at the Flea Market

Many antique tiles for sale.
Every Tuesday and Saturday is the Lisbon Flea Market, or Thieves' Market. The name apparently comes from a woman back in medieval times who frequented the market as a thief! This market dates back to the 12th century, and is an interesting way to spend a few hours just looking at everything from antique furniture to new and used clothing.

We had broken a wine glass, and were looking for a match. After a couple of hours, I was convinced that we were beaten, but Bryce kept saying, "I know it's here somewhere!" Sure enough, hidden in a pile of assorted glassware, there it was, an exact match!
