I ended up getting to the Rose Bowl Flea Market at 7 A.M. instead of my planned 5 A.M. but I was still early enough to get some great early bird finds. This market is the market to hit for great little treasures whether it be furniture, decorative pieces, random little collectibles, jewelry, handbags, clothes and the like. I found some vintage Gucci and Dior handbags, as well as some fabulous estate type era jewels and some really, really fabulous Balenciaga sunglasses from the '70s. I recommend anyone in the greater Los Angeles area to definitely check it out, it is definitely worth waking up at 5 A.M.
The Rose Bowl Flea Market goes on once a month, on every second Sunday. For more information, visit rgcshows.com
