My Day at the Rose Bowl Flea

I was lucky enough to spend a week and a half in California recently.  The weather was perfect - sunny and 60s and 70s the whole time.  It snowed in my hometown.  Twice.

Here are the photos I took at the Rose Bowl Flea...


But first, a picture of me on the beach at sunset.  I was barefoot.  It was glorious.

Ok, now the flea...






























I wish I could've fit all of these amazing things in my suitcases, but sadly, pictures must do them justice.

Here's what I did buy...





More mini oil lamps.  The collection is kinda taking over
every nook and cranny in my house.Ro
Like I needed anymore of these...
I've also been thrifting since I've been home from vacation already.  I'll post those in a separate post.

Also, I'm taking my mom on my huge round of thrift stores this weekend.  2 set eyes and hands are better than 1.

Everyone have a good night.

If anyone is going to the Rose Bowl Flea Market this Sunday - I'd love to meet fellow bloggers.  Drop me an email.  Other than that, I will be back to blogging in a couple weeks with a nice tan!

Until then...

SA

Stopped by one of my local Salvation Army stores.  The manager is my new favorite person - promising to save me back any Pyrex for me to come scoop up once a week.  He promised me a lot comes through the store.  I didn't see any when I was there yesterday, but I found a few things.  I'm also on a tiny industrial kick too.  Thank you to my fellow bloggers who got me hooked.

Back: vintage recipe box and coffee pot
Front: Fire King primrose creamer, McKee bowl, Federal bowl

Isn't this awesome???  It was also half price (of $2.99)!!
Tonight is picture night, as I have tons of goodies that I need to list.

Also - today started my Etsy sale!  25% off your entire purchase - use the code FEB25 (cannot be combined with any other coupons).  Sale runs through February 9, so I can ship February 10, and leave for vacation February 11!!! Woo hoo!
