Flea Market Funds

The fashionista and decorista that I am, I have wanted to take a drive to Pasadena for their infamous flea market held every second Sunday of the month. However, months go by and I have yet to make the trip. When the day hits I’m either too lazy to make the drive, make up excuses why I need to be here to do X, Y and Z, or I blessedly get booked for a makeup gig. I’m gonna get there soon but in the meantime, I was recently able to get my flea market fix right in my home town.
Who knew SD had a flea market? If you didn’t know, now you do. Not just a flea market but the San Diego Vintage Flea Market that I found out about through Facebook. Gotta love Facebook for its information! I found out about it a month or so ago. It was held a couple weekends ago. It was small but very cool, felt legit and I scored a couple finds to add to my currently messy jewelry stash. Yes, the wardrobe curator needs to curate her own closet. When it comes to wardrobe and a perfectly organized closet, do as I say not as I do…

I am on a struggling entrepreneur’s budget (hey that’s the price of freedom and I love it!) but I did manage to buy a few items that I fell in lust with.

I can always use a little fringe. The tree of life just sets it off with a one of a kind vibe. This is handmade by Velvet Moon Vintage, found on Etsy.

A silver ring engraved with the quote from the movie, The Crow, which says, “Real love is forever.” I am a sucker for love, as most libra’s are…

Let’s see what else did I notice while there….

Good times at the flea market! Looking forward to new finds at the next one!

  1. Thanks for sharing this fleamarket. It’s always so interesting to see what you can find in other countries. I’m a fleamarket-maniac. I need a fleamarket every Sunday and a thrift shop every Thursday. I have found so many wonderful old things like crystal, porcelain, old frames, old jewellery etc. etc. In my kitchen I have a lot of old things that I still use.

      1. Vintage shopping of clothes is really good for the environment, too. Nowadays people wear their clothes only a very short time and then throw them away. Just think how much water is used to water cotton etc. I find a lot of very beautiful used clothes like Burberry etc. for a real good price. And I buy a lot of jeans for 9,00 Euros per piece. I’m bicycling a lot and that destroys my jeans in a short time and I don’t want to spent 100,00 Euros for pants etc.
