In my hometown there was a big hall where they sold live stock once a week. They also used it for sports and concerts. Then a disease affecting live stock broke out. The market stopped and the last years of the Groenoordhallen there were big flea markets. That’s where I bought a few sheets of stamps from Czechoslovakia. I worked on it with stamps and blockprint. Just for fun.
