Tivoli selling off costumes, furniture and Christmas hearts

Denmark’s most famous amusement park holding a flea market

Fans of Tivoli, Denmark’s most celebrated amusement park, now have a chance to take a piece of the fairy-tale land home with them.

On Sunday April 24, between 11am and 4pm, Tivoli will be holding a flea market in the park’s Lumbye Salen. On offer will be a wide variety of costumes, trinkets, hand puppets and musical instrument cases – and even hearts from the park’s famous heart tree.

Recycled magic
“We’re not very good at throwing things out in Tivoli,” said Tivoli spokesperson Torben Plank.

“Over the years, we have stored dresses, uniforms, keychains …everything.  So we’ve decided to hold a flea market where guests and friends of Tivoli can buy something that has been a part of the park.”

Plank said the interest has been huge and he expects a big turnout.

“There is a wide variety of items, from large to small, and pretty to whimsical,” he said.

Get there early
Cash and credit cards will be accepted, and everything will be sold on a first come, first served basis.

Those looking to take a piece of Tivoli home are reminded that whatever they buy they will have to take home that day – with the exception of extra large pieces.

A new analysis from the Workers’ Union’s Business Council suggests that internationals rarely join trade unions – but if they did, it would generate better industry standards.
