On the second Sunday of every month, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena opens its gates to hundreds of vendors selling everything from vintage clothing to antique furniture. For just a $8 entry fee (free parking!), from 9 am - 3 pm you can shop till you drop or just browse till you feel... dizzy... (I was in the latter category :P)
So Brad and I visited the Rose Bowl flea market this past Sunday. It was cold, windy and overcast, but we scoured the aisles relentlessly in search of a coffee table. I guess I was expecting to find an amazing table at like $30 or something, but they were all in the $200-$500 range. I think craigslist is the better place for deals, personally. No matter, though... We had fun gawking at the beautiful vintage finds. Among the highlights were these really cool mod pieces of furniture by GoModRetro. I could definitely drop a pretty penny here. There was also a stall selling these amazing glass bottles topped with star fish and sea horses for $50-$100.
I then saw the same things online at Anthropologie for $200! o_O
