flea market:

May 17, 2010

hi! i've missed being here. i want to thank you all for your sweet comments about the good news about my mom. i was just discussing with nick last night how i am so fortunate to have such a great community of blogger-friends and readers. you are all so supportive and i can't thank you enough!

how was your weekend? this weekend was filled with lots for us. we saw iron man 2, spent saturday building a standing necklace panel for my display (will post pics once it's in action this weekend at bazaar bizarre maker faire! click events to the right to find out more info!) and went to the flea market!

i found a beautiful lace dress that i thought would be lovely for the wedding, and it was only $50! i'll take a picture of that too and post later ;) i also ran into cathie, and met lots of her sweet friends, which was so cool! well anyway, here are some photos from the long beach antique flea market i thought you'd enjoy:

flea market:
my favorite stop, "how does this guy get so much cool stuff??"
is my question whenever i stop by, heh.

flea market:
flea market:
i really love wood crates and wire baskets.

flea market:
flea market:
beautiful printing blocks.

flea market:
a whole bin of keys, my dream! ;) bought some of these
for a invitation or something.

so that's about it! if you saw something you want/need that you can't get at your local flea (or dont have antique markets) i can i'll totally look for something for you next time i go! what did you do this weekend? share your weekend posts from your blog or stories: i love to read what's going on with you. hope you all had wonderful weekends!

  6. I have never really been to a flea market. I am going to have to seek them out. But I think you got all the good stuff. I love the letters, and keys are my weakness.
    Enjoy the day!

  9. Where in the world is that fabulous flea market? I think I've died and gone to heaven. I would follow that guy home to see where lived, then follow him to see where indeed he does get all the FANTASTIC stuff. Well, I probably wouldn't really but oh, I would want to. Does he do all the display himself? I want it all.

  16. I've followed your blog for a long time in my Reader but finally decided to comment.

    It's such an inspiration to watch you bounce back into the swing of things after experiencing something so scary and uncertain. I'm so glad that your Mother is doing better and that you were able to spend so much time with her.

    Re: the flea market. I want that blue weekender bag, yesterday.

  22. Which flea market is this? Where is it located? I am really trying to find a good flea market to go to in the LA area when I am down there for school. LET ME KNOW!!! :)

    Well, since you asked, I am going to Thailand in June so my weekend was full of preparing for that!!! I also had a lovely day of church and reading "The Girls" by Lori Lansens.
