I have to admit I wasn't that impressed. Sure there are a lot of clothing piles to enjoy-- but these people are delusional on the pricing! I suppose the impending rain and cold weather prevented most vendors from being at their best. Don't worry I found a vast array of things I don't need and would never wear, some of which I purchased. How can the going rate for a dress be $30? I thought a flea market was about bargains? Here are some of the things that caught my eye
I like to call this one "the happy quilt" this pile cost me one dollar! That was a steal.
All of this MOD fab stuff was deadstock...stacks of flower power breakfast trays
This astrological scale was in my parents bathroom when I was a kid. I loved looking at it and trying to figure out what the horoscope signs were. Seeing it today gave me a weird feeling- mostly because I've never thought about it or seen another one til today. I liked weighing myself while holding my cat "Pepper" to see her weight.
I had to tell Joaquin "You'll shoot your eye out"
This was a psychedelic cutting board...
I went to the Rose Bowl with Frannie and Joaquin...my two neighbors who have never attended this flea market before. We were so new to the experience that by the time we figured out where the vintage clothing section was it was over.
The following pictures are a sad reminder of the handpainted leather CHAR 60's jacket I once owned and sold for 40 bucks when broke. I found out the going rate on these is now more like 400 bucks. Clothing regret hurts so bad---
It's always nice to end a day of thrifty shopping with a plate of onion rings and french fries.
