Flippin' the Script at the Rosebowl
An important tip...bring a pushy cart and get in the side entrance and beat the crowd.
We head straight to the "white section", this houses all the vintage clothing and accessories. First stop...Rob and Sarah's booth #3131... Where I picked up these amazing Ray Ban glasses that where modeled by my homies later at dinner that night...
Stopped by to see Lysa Rose, booth #3164. She offers a great selection of top quality ladies wears from victorian to the 90's.
Down the road is booth #3175, where Mara has been holding it down for about 15 year!!
Scored these deadstock Charles Jourdan canvas/rubber shoes from her...
And I always have to say "hey" to Joe. He's from the Bay too and can be found at booth #3154. He's got you covered in the vintage denim, t-shirts, workwear, boots and design oddities...he's been in the game for days!
And I always have to visit Andre. He's is the "Sunglasses" man...you can find him in space P07 in the orange section.
And the rest of my bounty from the day...
So the next time you find yourself at a fleamarket, remind yourself what goes into setting up shop. The journey, the hunt, the time, the energy, the money...there is a huge difference between cleaning out your garage and being a career fleamarketeer. Think twice about trying to get something for nothing. Believe me, I appreciate a good bargain, score or discount...but people gotta live and until you;ve been on both sides of the fence, think twice about whining or complaining about the price of something...if you only knew what it took to get it to you.

Oregon Puts Out
Booty, Booty, Booty, Booty rockn' everywhere...
And the big score! I try to explain to my folks what it is I look for in boots, so maybe while they're out they might see something and pick it up, maybe put them on The Goods! pay-roll ;) We went into a St. Vinny's and the step-dad b-lines towards the shoes. He comes back to me holding, what I can only describe as a little piece of boot heaven. He was so excited!! He had found these beauties...80's, stiletto, studded, appliqued, suede/leather/moc reptile print mix, all leather inside and out by Sacha London...and just my size. Which was a super bonus. Please believe, I try hard not to "get high off my own supply" but can you blame me?!?!
