Rose Bowl Flea Market

Incredibly delayed... But better late than never?

Checked out the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena. It was beyond fabulous. 

Definitely a full day's worth of stuff to look at, and not for the faint at heart [note to self: never bring my mother--she can't stand cluttery knick knacks or any other shopping experience that doesn't involve a limited number of orderly color-coded racks]. 

Best $10 I ever spent... This amazing vintage leather and brass Dooney & Bourke bag. When I asked the lady the price and she told me $10, I practically choked. I gave her the money and ran away before she could change her mind--and that says a lot, because I LOVE TO BARTER. I was very much looking forward to bartering, actually. But I felt like I was robbing this woman with her asking price, so I couldn't bring myself do it.

Long story short, go to the Rosebowl Flea Market. Bring coffee, patience, an open mind, and discerning eye.
