a visit to the rose bowl flea market.
when photographer bonnie tsang asked me i’d like to share photographs she snapped of jen and kelly of ban.do fame at the rose bowl flea market, how, or for heaven’s sake why, would i ever refuse? i *love* the rose bowl and it’s one of the things i miss the most not living in los angeles. let’s see the ban.do girls do their thrifting thing. thanks girls!
“i’ve been an avid swap-meeter for fifteen years. for me, there is nothing more rewarding than getting up at the crack of dawn and heading to the swap meet with some friends (or husband – he’s getting used to it now). the best part of all, now there is a real sense of purpose to my visits (where before it was really just hoarding). i am always looking for inspiration for ban.do. i find it the costume jewelry, vintage clothing, even the other swap meeters themselves. i never leave uninspired or empty handed. plus, now they sell beer, so it’s kinda a win win!”
