Treasure Hunting

I found lots of things at The Pasadena City College Flea Market this past weekend. 

I picked up the earrings and wooden necklace for $20.

These vintage peacocks were white gold, around $300.  I didn't bring that much cash, so I moved on.  The $15 dotted purse reminded me of something my mom had back in the day.  I vaguely remember biting off the plastic dots.

I loved this magazine rack instantly.  It had to come home with me.  Tip: Ask the seller the price if it isn't listed.  Make your rounds and return to barter.  Prices drop as the day goes on!

Jewelry arranged nicely is easier on the eye, but it's more expensive.  The stuff on the left, $20-$40.  The stuff on the right?  $2!

Taclking the $2 bins.  I liked this ring, but I didn't get it.  Only get what you love.

I loved this $5 scalloped purse instantly and wore it out to dinner for my birthday.  I recently wore the tribal necklace the with vintage silver earrings from my mother.

Don't let me forget about the budding businesses!  I fell in love with these dainty necklaces by k bird designs.   Her online shop doesn't list much, so if you see something you like in the photo, email here:

Oh My Goodness!!! I can't wait to go!!! ...But I just realized I'll be busy, and won't be able to go next month, either... :(
...maybe I'll go in November, and find something for MY birthday:)
Love the $5 purse! Love the Peacock earrings, too...but I don't think I would have been able to bring myself to buy them...even if I did have that much cash on me!
It looks like goodies galore, and I am SO excited to day!!!
