Flea Market Fun

What a fabulous time me and my mom had during our weekend trip to California. We have a favorite place we go to every year, it's a peddlers market. The sale takes place on Saturday. Most of the vender's start setting up on Friday and we make sure we are there on that day. We shop on Friday as the vendors are setting up, they are happy to sell there items early and we are happy to buy from them, we get the best picked items! The peddlers market is one day only on Saturday and me and my mom are always there early. We always have such a fun time and we meet the most fabulous people along the way. See the red and white potting bench in the picture above, yep it's mine now. The moment I saw, I knew I had to have it. I bought it from the most adorable person, Erin, all her items were beautifully displayed and look at her custom made canopy cover! Erin handed me her business card and I noticed on the card her blog address. We started chatting and we realized that we follow a lot of the same blogs. Erin is super sweet and you can find her blog here.

On Sunday we went to the Irvine Valley College Flea Market. It was our first time there. To our surprise it's not a super huge flea market, you can actually see everything in one day, lol. We had lots of fun leaving our money there. Here are some random shoots I took as we strolled around.

Look at all the ruffles!!

Looks like you had a great time at the flea markets. I love those gorgeous vintage prom dresses and that sweet vanity table. I always dreamed of having one of those when I was growing up, but was never lucky enough to get one. Maybe one of these days, I'll still be able to make my dream come true.

Hope all is well with you. Take care and have a fabulous weekend.
