Santa Monica flea market


We spent the better part of the morning at the flea market on Sunday.  This was my first time to Santa Monica flea market and it was pretty successful as far as shopping.  It was a small group of vendors but there was a pretty good selection.  I found a lot of textiles and pillows which is always fine by me as those are a few of my favorite things!  We even had a few celebrity sitings which made for a fun morning.


This booth was from elements- he had some really great pieces and I had a chance to talk with him which was nice once we had circled the market twice.  I am looking forward to seeing him at Long Beach as he is expecting some pieces to come in from France in a week or so!



I was so close to buying this set of Lucite tables..  so fun!



I picked up a pillow with the embroidered dragons on it- love it!


 (please excuse the dumpsters)


I totally love this mix.  So fun for a girls room or beach house!

the pillows are from Indian Pink



We also discovered another small but really great flea market in Anaheim off of Lincoln and Lemon.  Some of the best finds of the day are from there!  Once I get a chance to go through all of my stuff I will have to share some things with you.

Looks like it was a lot of fun and I can't wait to see what you picked up. Perhaps some will make it in your shop???

I hope you're enjoying your long weekend!

One of these days I really must come to this flea market! A lot of the things pictured are just like what we have in the shop at the moment! I love the red cricket balls in the wooden pedestal bowl! We have something so similar! Great pillows as well! Have a great Memorial Day and thanks for sharing this!

Wow! I should have you shop for me, as I am in Iowa. I love everything in the first photo. I think the photo of the pillows and dumpsters is a great juxtaposition,love it.

Looks like they had a lot of nice items. I am especially fond of textiles and it looks like there wasn't a shortage of them.

I wish that was MY black volvo in the background because I would have snatched that dragon pillow out from under ya
