At The Fleas - Part I: The Adventure

First of all, by fleas I mean flea market. Second, it was my very first time so bare with the excitement. Third, this post is PICTURE HEAVY!

OMG!!! I want to go every single month, it was soooo amazing. Ok, calming down now... The honey and I went to the Rose Bowl Flea Market, we got up at 5:00 am thank you very much, in order to be there on time, to avoid chaos. On our way there we stopped at Starbucks [check out the cool pic of me holding the cup].


We got there early, at 7:30 and decided to buy the tickets for 8:00 am [The prices change depending on the time. The earlier it is, the more expensive they are.] because there was already a little line and they were only $2 cheaper than the 9:00 am ones.

So, we went in at 8, which doesn't make that much sense cause vendors officially "open" at 9 am, but whatevs. Being our very first time EVER thrift shopping, we just wanted to see what it was like. Ok, by we, I completely mean ME. Two seconds in and I was in love! I mean so many little different, UNIQUE things and hello! the prices. Ok, but enough about that, because all of my amazing new items are coming on a different post. This one is all about the adventure.


Ok, so adventure #1- I was looking at some seriously fabulous headbands, that looked reaaally familiar...of course!!! It's from one of my favorite etsy shops, Bedford Falls. Sweet Abigail was nice enough to take a picture with me after I stalked asked her. Make sure you check out her etsy shop.


Isn't she gorgeous??? And look at her beautiful, handmade pieces. I'm in love. Period. Moving on to adventure #2 - I bought a really cute headpiece, you know the kind you wear across the forehead [you'll see it on my next post] and then stalked asked the friendly lady, Kendra, for a picture too, because well, I'm weird.

She was actually nice enough to try and pronounce the honey's name correctly, which is virtually impossible like the first 30 times you try it. Kendra actually designs tees and does custom logos and that sort of thing. How cool ah?

What Am I Wearing??

Black top from Heavenly Couture, Navy top from F21, this is the one I got this time. The gray sweater from Ponme. Jeans from F21 as well, gold sandals from Steve Madden, hat from Valija Gitana,bag from Target.
