Pasadena Flea Market

On the second Sunday of every month, the Rose Bowl becomes the biggest treasure hunt/yard sale/antique shop I have ever seen. There is everything from furniture, to denim cut offs + you can find some really interesting items. The more serious shoppers get there around 6 am to score the best items. I got there around 11, just to browse. A tip if you attend next month: it gets HOT HOT HOT. Bring water, sunscreen and dress appropriately.

A lot of vendors have miscellaneous items spread out for you to search through, as seen above. However, I found two different booths that had more of a concentration, and were laid out so well.

FR2S Colored Bottles
The couple who was selling all of this colored glass, did so in a way you couldn’t help but walk over to. The glass was organized and neat, and it was pretty cool to see the vintage colored bottles. Next time I need a vase, I know where I’m going!

I think this was possibly the most interesting table I saw on Sunday. This man had acquired trinkets, all with a steampunk vibe, and organized them in a way for you to search through. I loved his wooden stamps and buckets of loose letters. I am definitely brainstorming some craft ideas.

Happy Wednesday!

    Oh my gosh… I love it all! So awesome!

    Can we brainstorm DIY & can I go with you next time? Maybe we can collect vases/champagne flutes for our garden party?


  2. Long Beach has a cool one too! We should go! It’s not quite as hot as Pasadena.
