Tips for living a fabulous life on a budget

Budget Home Design – Flea Market Finds January 27, 2010

In a recent adventure to the Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market I found some great budget accessories for my apartment including: windowsill plants/pots $1/each, drinking glasses $10/4, and a horse shoe $1.  I placed the horse shoe above the door to my kitchen for good luck. I was totally exhausted after 5 hours of flea market shopping, but it was well worth it.

Bird pictures – $30 for 4 pictures

Deer figures – $15 for both

This past weekend my friend Cedes and I decided to do some bargain shopping at the the Melrose Trading Post flea market.  I love flea market shopping.  There is always a lot of junk, but nothings beats a great flea market find.

This past weekend was my best flea market excursion to date.  Within the first 10 minutes, I found 4 vintage bird pictures that reminded me of my grandmother and 2 deer figurines.  While we kept shopping, I decided that $45 was my limit and kept the rest of my spending under control.  These purchases are the perfect accents for my book shelf.
