The Long Beach Flea Market...

If you read my posts - you'll know that I love going to the Long Beach Flea Market every 3rd Sunday of the month. There are such interesting pieces, the vendors are super friendly, and its one of my favorite ways to spend my Sunday. On top of that - its a great way to get a tan!! This time around I didn't really buy much, but here were some things that I loved but didn't take home with me. Amazing paintings were $75 for the pair.
Baker dresser - it was beautiful in person. $350

The second I saw this bench - I immediately fell in love. The leather on it is original and same with the nail heads on the back.



Darling faux bamboo coffee table base - all it needs is the glass topper.

Loved this monkey planter - it was about two and a half feet tall.

Pair of murano glass lamps. These were amazing in person - but they were $500 for the pair... so it was way out of my budget.
LOVED this chair and the dealer is a friend of mine - he has a shop on Melrose and June. What a horrible friend I am, I don't even know the name of the shop.... but I can give you directions - his shop is amazing and they have THE best prices on mid century!

  2. The Baker Dresser is to die for! And I am always on the lookout for a great bench. Lovely selections, I always forget my camera when I go to a flea market or am to shy to photograph at garage sales. Thanks for sharing.
