The San Diego Vintage Flea Market

This past weekend was the San Diego Vintage Flea Market. This is the third one I have attended (I believe they only started about a year and a half ago), but they are becoming more frequent, now happening every few months. I couldn’t be happier about this. The prices are a little higher than one would expect to pay at a thrift store or the swap meet, but I was surprised at some of the great deals many of the vendors had to offer. It is such a fun event, high quality vintage everywhere you turn; housewares, clothes, jewelry, furniture, and more. I can’t wait for the next one!

Of course, I couldn’t post about the vintage flea market without sharing my finds. This amazing 1950s lamp was a steal at $20 (I had to ask the woman to repeat the price, I thought I heard her wrong!). I also picked up an apron, a scarf, and a pair of earrings.

    Wonderful finds!!! I really like those earrings. They’re a bit like an abstract flower and look like they’ll go with a bevy of outfits, thanks to their shape and neutral hue.

    Were you the one with all the darling little girl clothes? If so, I talked to you for a minute, I had just gotten over a cold and had no voice left!

    Also, how did you do selling at the flea market? I am thinking about getting a spot as a vendor at the next one.

    Yes, baby girl clothes! That was me. It was such a whirlwind of a day, if I had put 2 and 2 together I would have introduced myself.

    We had a very good day at the market. I’m happy to chat more about it with you offline, but yes, you should totally do it.
