long beach antique market.

{loved these upcycled succulent container gardens. visit crystal's blog to see more beautiful displays: succulessence}
There is something quite special about rising up a little bit earlier than my normal laid back Sunday morning routine, to get breakfast on the go (a poppy seed muffin & juice in my case) and head on out for a drive to Long Beach's antique market. 

I met so many sweet, creative vendors, and scored quite a few pieces I was on the hunt for with the help of my husband, the bargainer, in this relationship of course. After spending many hours walking through what seemed like my very own treasure land, I left a happy thrifter. Next up is the rose bowl flea market.

  9. I love the Long Beach flea market! I go every month, such a relaxing thing to do with my beau. Coffee, pastries, early morning drive through LA (yay no traffic when you are up at 7!). What has been your favorite find so far?
