Springtime Flea Market Treasures

From the Melrose Trading Post - this flea market made me happy about moving to LA 10 years ago...

This particular trip was a golden one... judging from my gilded haul!

Vintage Gold Tassel Necklace
My first find of the day was this $15 vintage gold tassel necklace.

Pearl Trio Ring
This lovely golden pearl trio ring $20 was bought from the jewelry-maker herself. Pearls are my birthstone...

Pearl Earrings
More pearly golden fun for $3... now I can be the girl with the pearl earring(s)!

Gold Purse
This great goldie purse $15 has a nice long strap so I can wear it cross-body.

vintage glass grapes
I've decided to start collecting vintage glass grapes and here is my first bunch, only $5!

Lemon Bar from Plaisir
The day was finished off with this golden, sweet, tart and luscious lemon bar from the yummy, new and French patisserie, Plaisir!

And then...

Last month I finally made it back to the Rosebowl Flea Market, after about 6 years, to spend the day treasure hunting with my darling friend Amy of A Sunny Day in LA, who was celebrating her birthday!

Vintage Enid Collins-esque Purse
I've been a fan of Enid Collins' vintage bags for years, so this pristine little number caught my eye in the back corner of this otherwise dingy booth full of knick-knacks. I was expecting a high price, so imagine my delight when the lady only wanted $20! To be honest, there's isn't any signature, so it could be a repro of some sort, but I don't care, cause I love it!

Peacock Feathers
These gorgeous peacock feathers were $5 for 6... something else I've been wanting for a while!

Wondering what treasures this summer will bring my way...

Until next time... Miss Absinthe
