I love to frequent flea markets… or swap meets as they are called in this part of the country. Estate sales are so interesting too. I love things that have been passed down to me or that I have saved or collected over the years. My Mother was a saver and collector of stuff. She used to say “it will be worth something someday!” When we moved to California and I sold a ton of stuff on Ebay, I laughed, thinking I guess she was right. I am happy to say that my Daughter also enjoys collecting, saving and frequenting flea markets.
As part of being more authentic on my blog and letting my readers learn more about who MB really is, I have decided to start a new feature. On Thursdays, I will post about something old. It may be an old photo, some old toys that were mine when I was little, something that I have collected or a great find of some sort.
Awhile back Nina and I went to the Long Beach Antique Market. I came across a pile of this furniture:
This pile was not in very good condition. Some of the pieces looked familiar as I still have my Ideal’s Petite Princess Furniture… and in much better condition. The furniture was made in the 60’s… just like me! I have this china cabinet below... I will pull out all of my pieces someday to share.
I had to take a photo of this bathtub…
The condo that we live in was also built in the 60’s… just like me and take a look at our tub!!!
Lucky thing that I am short, because I do not think it would be very good for a tall human… but it is perfect for MB!
