Screw the cheesy family holidays to Tenerife or Palma. My parents love history & to see the nitty gritty of any country. So we are roadtripping from Palermo to Rome & absolutely killing it. I am blessed.
I've been looking for a decent market that sells anything vintage that can actually be worn, but instead finding historical treasures that are best looked at and not touched. Boohoo.
But THERE IS HOPE.
Just under Mount Vesuvius (near Pompeii) there is a little town called Portici where there is a second hand clothing market until 12 midday, everyday!!
So tomorrow I will ravage the market & see what treasures lay ahead. Ahoy, I will be haggling- this is Italy.
It's a pinch worthy moment- we are staying in a 17th century palace where the king of Naples used to visit for hunting trips and holidays.
So happy Christmas & I hope we can all enjoy some past in the present.
