Sunday at the Flea Market

flea maket

It's become one of my favorite Mother's Day traditions...

After brunch, I get to slip away to the flea market...

I usually bring about $50 and a couple rolls of film...

...to buy and take pictures of whatever I want...

Here are some of the things I spotted today at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. (My favorite is the pink petticoat hanging from a tree!)

I ended up buying two vintage summer dress (originally from the old Bullocks store on Wilshire Blvd.) One of them is leopard print and very 1960s! I have more photos! Will post them on flickr later.

Hope you had a lovely day!

The summer dresses sound wonderful and what a lovely way to spend the day. The Rose Bowl flea market is as fascinating as Portabello Road or the Paris markets.
