I know I have written about the flea markets in the past.... but I found some GREAT vendors at The Rose Bowl Antique Flea Market!
Every decorator in Southern California has spent a sunny Sunday wandering The Rose Bowl. Today I fell in LOVE with Euro-Linens... a Parisian grain sack has found a home in my mud-room. I am going to use the sack to recover a bench I use as a shoe cubby. Once I complete the project I will post a picture. I have to say it was meant to be, as the sack has the initials O & M on it (the initials of my two sons). They have fantastic pillows for a child's bedroom & the bolster pillows are perfect for daybed... now.. I just need an extra space in my small cottage for a daybed!
The second vendor I will be sure to use on future projects are Olde Good Things (they have 2 stores in LA). An old ceiling tin has found its home as a back splash behind my stainless steel range in my kitchen. They have amazing architectural salvage pieces, many of which are repurposed into unique furniture pieces. One of my favorites I saw put to use on their website is a clock face from an old clock tower. The new owner reused it as a headboard in their bedroom.... very unique!
For those of you on the East Coast or NYC they have two stores in NY and can also be found at flea markets. Addresses and flea market dates/locations are found on their website.
If you find yourself in The Bay Area in CA... be sure to check out The Alameda Points Antiques and Collectible Faire on the 1st Sunday of every month. Many of the antique vendors I chatted with today couldn't say enough about this flea market...
What a great way to spend a Sunday!
