In the A to Z Blogging Challenge, the letter today is F. What better to chat about than flea markets. Yesterday, being the first Sunday of the month we have at least 3 options to hit in Southern CA: Rose Bowl in Pasadena, The Groves Antique Market in Irvine, CA. Yes, I was a snob before too thinking that any flea market in Irvine would most likely be a bust. I’m happy to say I was wrong! There is also the Melrose Trading Post, which is every weekend, but I haven’t made it in person yet. I do follow Melrose Trading Post on Instagram; looks like they have a great selection of vendors.
Well, unfortunately, I didn’t make it to any of these great first Sunday of the month spots. Instead I had to finish up my last long run before Santa Cruz Half Marathon next weekend. Boo!
Because I didn’t hit the flea markets, I don’t have any current pictures. It goes against my nature NOT to put at least one pretty picture in my post, so here is one from the Farm & Frills Antique Market in Enumclaw, WA. If you’re in the area, it’s at least twice a year and such a great show!
