It’s become one of my favorite Mother’s Day traditions…

After brunch, I get to slip away to the flea market…

I usually bring about $50 and a couple rolls of film…

…to buy and take pictures of whatever I want…

Here are some of the things I spotted today at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. (My favorite is the pink petticoat hanging from a tree!)

I ended up buying two vintage summer dress (originally from the old Bullocks store on Wilshire Blvd.) One of them is leopard print and very 1960s! I have more photos! Will post them on flickr later.

Hope you had a lovely day!

    The summer dresses sound wonderful and what a lovely way to spend the day. The Rose Bowl flea market is as fascinating as Portabello Road or the Paris markets.

    You hit the nail on the head: You must have at least one adorable vigntae item. Thus far, I have amassed a small army of vigntae vases, though I think your straw holder is far cuter than most vigntaey weddingness I’ve seen!
