About

Because the past can not be forgotton

I am a true flea market lover, or better said addict…
My favourite pastime was and is to visit thrift stores or local flea markets in summer.
And nothing gives me more joy then finding a little hidden treasure in a box or to see some peculiar object on a small stall.

My shop is called “Hippo’s Dream” for a special reason...
Years and years ago, when I was a young teenager, I bought on a flea market a mother and baby hippo from the seventies. They were handmade and the mother was truly a big, big animal...I loved them!!!
Years later when I moved house I decided that my little brother could sell my hippos on a local flea market....and now 20 years later I still miss them and I regret that I have sold them. I still have a few blurry pictures that remind me of them.
On every flea market I still look and I hope one day that I find them back....

So I hope that some of the vintage items that I sell in my shop will also give the owner as much joy as my hippos or even better that they find back the treasure that they are searching for, for many years....

So I buy for myself but also for my little shop called “Hippo’s Dream”, when I stroll on those little flea markets
Like so many people I dream of making a living selling vintage items but like so many it is just a hobby as everybody needs a fixed income.
Still, I hope that you like the treasures offered in my little shop and if you are searching for something particular you can always inform me as I am always on the hunt.

Thanks for visiting Hippo’s dream, you made my day !
