Rose Bowl Flea Market

This past Sunday I finally made it to the oh so famous Rose Bowl Flea Market!  I have desperately wanted to attend since I found out about it. The Rose Bowl Flea sets up on the second Sunday of each month. It can be considered as the queen of all vintage flea markets. If you are a vintage junkie and an old soul you will fall in love with this place.  You can find treasures like furniture, handbags, shoes, jewelry, clothing, toys, you name it! As soon as you walk through the gates you get overwhelmed as to which direction to go first.  Of course, I had to run to the nearest rack of dresses.  I could feel my eyes glowing at the sight of every retro print I laid eyes on.  I bought a gorgeous green dress with white polka dots, right on the spot!  The prices can be generous depending on the seller and most of the merchandise is in good condition, but it can get pricey for certain things.  A downfall is that you are charged an entree fee.  Basically, you are being charged to shop. Hmm...weird?  It can be worth it depending on what you are looking for.  Plus they do offer a HUGE amount of vendors.  You definitely will not leave empty handed.  As much as I love vintage, by the end of the day I was tired and had no more energy to see every single booth.  It would take more than one day to fully see everything there!  I will be attending again next month.  If you plan to go do not forget to take cash, water, shorts, and flats!              

Vintage heaven!

Love these distressed rock t-shirts!  I think I will make my own at home.

Who didn't collect trolls back in the 80's 90's.

Smitten with these amazing vintage buttons!  Possibly from the 1920's.

Came out with some goodies!

What I wore.  Cry Baby t-shirt, high-waisted studded shorts.
