The Rose Bowl!

 Every time I go to California, I try to make it just before the 2nd Sunday of the month. The Pasadena Rose Bowl is an absolute MUST for me!

 There are all kinds of vendors that range from vintage to antique, shabby chic to ultra modern.
 However, I have to admit that this past February I was very disappointed with "The Bowl".  They are under construction, it was extremely crowded due to limited space, and the vendors were charging amazingly high prices. AND I couldn't find one of my favorite venders. (insert very sad face here) I didn't come away with as much as I usually do.
 Still, there is no way I would miss it.  There are just so many fun and beautiful treasures to be found…I just had to look a little harder this time.

Even though it wasn't the shopping trip that I had expected, it was still worth the trip. And of course, the worse day of flea shopping is better than the best day at work.

Patricia :o)

Sounds like you had a good time, even though your favorite vendor couldn't be found. I haven't been doing much "shopping" - especially since 2009 when we got our first 2 pups and a year later our 3rd - they go everywhere with us. They are so special.

This looks like a wonderful day to spend a day. You are so right, any day at a flea market is a good day. So much better than a day at work...Blessings!

This Flea Market is featured in Romantic Homes this month - I have heard about it for years but never gotten there - wonderful that you could go!

My daughter went and pretty much said the same thing, though she did find some beautiful silver plated flatware. But you are right..she paid too much.
I visited Ebay to see if you were selling anything..but nothing. :(
I have bought so many pretty pillowcases from you.
