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.

A good friend of mine introduced me to the site Etsy a few months ago and I am totally in love. There are so many handmade, budget friendly finds. Here are the links to today’s favs:

Flea Market Finds May 26, 2009
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.
