Though travel adventures have been taking center stage recently, my spying eye never sleeps and yesterday spotted a true treasure trove! A flea market in Montevideo, very much like the fleas in Paris, had many lovely estate items (glassware, antiques, china, silver, etc.) as well as beautiful jewelry, handbags and – finally – some clothing! I picked up a great 1940’s at-home gown from France and saw a collection of gorgeous blouses, bed jackets and nightgowns of the early mid-century era. I would have liked to buy it all! Prices were very reasonable and the merchandise in excellent condition.
