Geneva Flea Market

Yesterday I went to the Geneva flea market which is held every Saturday in the Plainpalais area of town. The assortment of goods is amazing. It runs the gamut from sheer junk to fine furniture. The surprising thing is that you can still find that unique piece at substantial savings. You can also find fine soaps from Provence, beads galore, jewelry, fine pens, reproductions and original prints and beautiful scarfs from the east, plus much more. I've included some photo's to give you a taste of what it's like.The second photo here is of Henry Dunant who was the founder of The International Red Cross established here in Geneva in 1863. The Red Cross is an international humanitarian movement created to protect human life and health, to ensure respect for the human being and to prevent and alleviate human suffering.
