I finally got to do something that has been on my vintage to do list for a long time, and that is go to the Rose Bowl flea Market. I have been wanting to go for years, and the thrifting luck was on my side because the Sunday that it was open on was a perfect date for us to go. I was so excited the night before that I had a hard time sleeping. Here are some pictures from my wonderful adventure.
When I saw the sign I think I started skipping towards it in excitement!
But first I had to take a photo op with Mr Joyful Thrifter. We had so much fun roaming the aisles together.
I saw on the website that Dave Hester from Storage Wars was going to be at the Flea Market, but I really did not think I would get to meet him. He was right at the entrance and I was able to take a picture with him before we went into the flea market. I love the show, so it was fun to meet him. Plus it impressed my brother, and to be honest that was the only reason I made sure I got a picture.
Oh the cool rusty treasures that were every where you looked.
This lady had such a large collection of dishes and McCoy Pottery for sale. It was quite a site to see it all together.
I thought this dress was so lovely, and would be so fun to wear to a special occasion. Since none of those are in my future the picture will suffice.
I loved all of these frames.
OH MY!!! Almost a complete set of Pyrex dishes in the "Dots" pattern. I pretty much stopped dead in my tracks when I saw them. You might be asking if I bought them, and the answer is no. They were $65.00 for the three, and that was a bit to much for my thrifty budget.
My last wonderful treasure of the day was bumping into my dear friend Kami from The Blue Kazoo. I couldn't believe I found her at an event that had thousands of people in attendance. Just shows what true friendship looks like.
Have a beautiful weekend. I will for sure because my sweet sister is getting married tomorrow, and it is going to be a perfect day celebrating their day!!!
