to market, to market



It's that time again. We are headed off to market to find all sorts of new pieces and little goodies to fill the store with. And while we are there, I guess we might as well swing by the flea market, also. Ok, twist my arm. The California flea markets have long been a favorite of mine. Even just to wander glancing at old photos and flipping through old books is somehow relaxing, almost therapeutic. Last month, we had so much fun meandering about the isles of the flea market just looking at all the amazing treasures there were to be found.



And, I do have to say, we had some pretty fabulous finds of our own that we brought back. I will probably spend the whole drive over dreaming of what I might bring home with me this time.

Just googled california flea markets and came up with lists throughout the state - are there certain ones you go to as opposed to others?

Gina - my two favorites are the long beach flea market and the rose bowl flea market. the rose bowl is the biggest and absolutely amazing, but can also be a little overwhelming the first time. the long beach one is a little more manageable in size and still has really great stuff. even the santa monica flea market seems to have great little treasures and is even smaller than the other two, so i guess it just really depends on what you are looking for. any of those three shouldn't disappoint, though. hope you go and love it as much as i do!
