Very early this morning we motored thru the marine layer (? new west coast term for coastal fog?!) to the campus of City of Pasadena College for a huge monthly flea market. We found a wonderful assortment of vintage, antique, and just plain junque vendors spread out over three parking lots and several levels of a huge parking garage. The temperature was perfect for wandering about for four hours – and we still didn’t cover all the acerage!
We found many treasures – in addition to those shown in the photo above, Mercer scored an extra large Coca Cola tin of matchbooks, and I found three postcards based on prints of early 1900 European hotels. The Hawaiian shirt, chick, book of poems, belt buckle, and two hankerchiefs are Donna’s finds; the primer, 4 small brass figurines, wooden dragon netsuke, flattened pennies, and Japanese book are mine.
It was a fun outing! Then we came back and sewed for the rest of the afternoon.
What an excellent trip west this has been – I’ve been blessed with extended time with my daughter, hubby and new grandson as well as collaborative days with my sister. Life is good.
