My kids were camping with their grandparents. My friends had given me money to spend at the flea market. My husband had the day off. Check. Check. Check.
And we were off.
I love the Rose Bowl Flea Market. I do not find that the deals are better here than other places. Probably quite the opposite. But it is huge. So there is a huge selection of stuff.
The problem is, I have a lot of stuff. And I have a tiny house. So on this trip, I was pretty much looking for a petticoat and fabric to make pillows.
Did I find what I was looking for? I’ll show you what I scored tomorrow.
Today, I wanted to share pictures of the items found around the flea market. There are a lot of odd things to be found. Which makes it so much fun!
Poor Guy! He reminds me of Disneyland (the Country Bear Jamboree).
“Everybody Loves Raymond,” anyone? These ones were really expensive.
I thought this couch was fun!
Because I live to give you nightmares.
Here’s one more.
Oh! These old school chairs are amazing!
This lamp would have been so rad with a different shade and perhaps a different color. When I went back to show my husband, it was gone.
Where would you put this?
I want to suck your blood? Same question as above.
I loved this, too. Again, small house problems. No room.
I wanted this bird. Badly. I walked by this stall three different times. No shop owner. Darn! It would have been so cool in so many different ways!
I could not resist snapping some pictures of some gnomes. I did not buy any. They were all too pricy. This guy was snoozing in the flea market. He missed the whole thing.
I loved these giant cement gnomes. They were spendy at $100 each. I probably could have haggled. I am sure someone gave them a loving home. But they are my one regret from the trip.
And let’s conclude with a cool carpet chest! I almost bought that guy, but fifty years of carpet… Hmmmm… Tomorrow, I will show my few purchases I made. Until then, have a great day!
