Flea Market Finds - What I Bought

I am not afraid to admit that I am a shopaholic. When I'm shopping, I'm also doing what I like to call "market research." Due to the nature of my intense devotion to fashion, I must stay on top of current and upcoming trends. if this means shopping on a regular basis, then I will not object.

I find great items almost every time I go to the Rose Bowl Flea Market. My second time there, I bought an aboriginal bracelet for $2. My third time there, I bought a much-coveted vintage Orange County Boy Scout shirt for $5. (Then they got trendy and I stopped wearing mine.) That day I also found some great fabric patches for $1 apiece. Yesterday I bought a Hello Kitty T-shirt for $10. These are the same T-shirts that sell for upwards of $28 at places like Delias and Urban Outfitters. I also bought a crocheted beanie with a rosette which will come in handy for my trip to London.

I have been looking for a great yellow bag and I finally found this canvas bag with yellow patent trim. It has a few functional pockets and is not so big that the contents get lost.

I scored this guitar bag for $8 at the flea market. They also had one in bright pink.

While I'm not normally a huge fan of pink, I could not resist this kitschy top with polks dots and poodles on the trim. This top also came in yellow.

As I was on my way out of the flea market, I stopped by a booth that had cute tops. This tunic by Monteau caught my attention. The combination of colors in this top is flattering to my coloring. I can't wait to wear it on a sunny Saturday afternoon!

I photographed more items that caught my eye at the Rose Bowl Flea Market and will post those photos later this week. Happy shopping!
