One of my nonnegotiable monthly activities is to make a trip to Pasadena's Rose Bowl Flea Market. It's one of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday morning: wake up early, pick up a latte at Silver Lake's Intelligentsia, then swing by the mania.
There are vintage rugs from Morocco, chairs from Scandinavia, and antique jewelry for days. I wander the aisles, looking for treasures I didn't know I wanted, while noshing on tacos and fresh watermelon lemonade.
Sometimes I walk away with something amazing, other times I leave empty-handed, but I’m particularly proud of what I found on my latest trip.
I’ve been desperately looking for a cool lantern to hang over my non-functional fireplace and I loved this one the second I saw it. The best part is that the wiring is still intact, so it’s both functional and pretty!
