Rose Bowl Beads

My favorite place to be on the second Sunday of every month, and one of the only things I actually get up early for on the weekends (besides Bloody Mary Sunday) is the Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea market.

The first time I went, all the booths and awesome vintage finds blew my mind, and my brain went slightly insane and I lost the my group, but didn’t really care, and continued to wander around the market until I was on the brink of a heat stroke. The second time we went I learned my lesson, stayed with the group and walked the stalls in a very organized manner. They threatened me with a child leash if I behaved like the last time…

This new found discipline (and leash threat) led me to an much better second experience and I even found a ton of amazing things, like this great necklace of glass beads. I suppose most people would buy it for a project, but I bought it to add to otherwise bland outfits, and it’s great! I had to harangle the seller down from $45 to $10… and play a little hard ball for some little glass balls, but that is why I love the Rose Bowl.
