The Lucca Antiques Market

Lucca Antiques MarketWithout really planning it, we just happened to arrive in Lucca on the day of the antiques market.  It was fascinating to see the display of incredible objects from the past.  Every piece was unique, telling a story all by itself.

At the Lucca Antiques Market, you will find anything you could imagine, and nothing you will ever need.  Old photographs in classic frames, delicate glassware from family cupboards, furniture of all types and sizes, tiny pill boxes, musical instruments, toys and a world of others objects far too numerous to mention.

Although it was October, the day we arrived was warm and sunny.  It wasn’t particularly crowded, and we could take the time we needed to appreciate all of the junk of history in all its glory.

Here are a couple of photos from that day.

Be sure to save some room in your suitcase for that one-of-a-kind piece that grabs your eye and captures your imagination!
