Santa Monica Flea Market Day!

Welcome to the Santa Monica Antique Market!!

This is where I spent my Sunday morning.

Love the Sand and Sea sign.

I didn't buy a lot today, but what I found was great. The little loving cup is from a 1954 Regatta, and only $10. The glass jar is from France. I am going to use it for ribbon scraps. I bought 3 old spools to use for ribbon. I got some great old ribbon and millinery flowers. I also got a deck of Spanish tarot cards. I though they would be great for my collage/cards.

We did have 2 celebrity sightings today. Marisa Tomei and Geena Davis.
That was fun! Santa Monica is always a good place for spotting a celeb or 2.
My husband Mark got nothing, because it is quite the girly flea market. He patiently waited, while I lingered at each and every booth.

Hope you had a great weekend!

Another Flea Market! Yahoo! This one looks great too. Which do you like better, Ventura or Santa Monica....or Rose Bowl???
I need to know this because I will have to have an itinerary when I come out and visit you one day.
By the way, how did you pass up that old floral picture on top of the red van?

Rosemary, I love it when you take pictures when you go to the flea market. I get a little glimpse of something I otherwise wouldn't get to see. I love that sign too and all the things you got!

Your flea markets are so great! I'm so glad that you had such a fun time!

The French Nest said...

I want it all! My mum (posted from home) and I, as you know, are huge garage sale and flea market gals, but have yet to come across a flea market as impressive as this one. I love your finds, they are beautiful (especially the French postcard!) You must post your creations once you have completed them, I would love to see what you did with the Spanish tarot cards! As always, I love visiting your blog!

Carol said...

Oh Rosemary you are so fortunate to live in area which such fab fleamarkets! Thanks for taking us along! I would have bought the white bird cage!

Allison said...

Rosemary, it looks like you had a great time. We don't really have flea markets in Minnesota too much. But, lots of fun antique shops and also places that do just one weekend a month (those are really fun because they change out all of their stuff every month so it's like a new place each time). The flea markets you go to look like they would be really fun. Glad you had such a nice weekend.
