Oh, I must have missed the Rose Bowl (or Long Beach, PCC, etc.). The flea market scene is in his top five favorite things about living in LA. So I am very excited that the Rose City Vintage Market will be held (in partnership). left coast revivals) is here and it’s so good!! We went with the whole family (but we split because I promised Birdy some girls’ day shopping and Birdy wanted the boys to do their own thing) and it was incredibly fun. Here’s how it all happened.
The market this year was large, mostly indoors, but the outdoor market was also quite healthy. It was a very well curated mix of booths (great fun and a huge tribute to the vendors who obviously put in a lot of effort). There was also some clothing, jewelry and art, but mostly furniture and decorations in a wide variety of styles. It was just to my liking.
Laura’s left coast revivals This year has (as far as I understand) contributed a lot of support and brought in a lot of vendors and people. Guys, I love this vintage scene from his PDX. Very nice people who have good things work hard to source and handpick beautiful things. Kudos to all these champions.
I met some friends Max Humphrey Was there signing his book and Annie (buy a wilma) was shopping there. She got that damn stool I wanted to steal from her. Perhaps she will sell it soon. Oh my God, the lighting in this joint was not my favorite!
this vendor There were many good carpets! I loved this blue rug, but had to part with it because it wasn’t the right size for me to put anywhere in the house. It’s a shame because I’m particular about vintage rugs. We hope you reach the perfect home.
That dope ceramic lamp was $2,600 and I thought it would be too risky to bring it to a flea market (it was awesome and a super famous mid-century potter, but for that price I think it should be listed on 1stDibs – don’t kid me!!).I was about to buy a denim blazer, but I remembered I had literally just bought it This is Madewell’s That is wonderful. huh.
When I found this seascape, I already found a place in my house.It’s from dry goods sale And those colors are incredible (and it was only $60).
I also purchased some pieces from this art vendor, Irving Street Trading Company I am a treasure trove of art, so I never regret getting a great piece.
I thought about buying the weird painting and mixed media that hangs over his right shoulder, but it was so expensive ($750) that I couldn’t immediately imagine it at home. I’ve thought about it a lot since then, and of course I wished I had it. The red/blue/white painting is amazing – imagine a staircase mixed in on your art wall at home.
Charlie found this skateboard ramp and fell in love with it. The seller was too expensive in my opinion ($220), coffee and snacks She was very kind and made a lot of things into lamps in a very fun way. Charlie isn’t as excited about decorating his room as Birdie (she’s endlessly enthusiastic about). So when he reacts to something really seriously, he tries to respect it (especially if it’s vintage and supports local vintage makers). So yes we bought it and of course Birdie came to want the $200 one as well (I tried to hide the price but now they can “read” which is really a problem in cases like this). She soon found a not-so-great, very flashy lamp (similar to a 90s Z gallery), and nearly had a nasty temper tantrum when I said no. It’s hard to explain and it felt so unfair, but I just wanted something and didn’t care what it was. Everything is a thing! ! !
I finally got the original inside out You can put it almost anywhere in your house. The colors are great too and I’m a big fan of his creative spirit.
It was a lot of fun. The next shows are He’s Oct. 21 and He’s Oct. 22. Below is a partial list of many vendors in case you want to follow (and buy something). The rest of the list should be available soon. These are people doing a good job in a business that is almost impossible to scale because its nature is all unique. So support them 🙂
