Once a month (on the second Sunday of the month, to be exact) the in-the-know Angelenos flock to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena with high hopes of finding treasure. Heading to the Rose Bowl Flea Market is as exhilarating as it is exhausting so I end up going only a couple of times a year. Each time I go, I fine a little gem – sometimes large sometimes small.

Last Sunday my husband and kids appeased me in honor of Mother’s Day and faced 80 degree heat for a couple of hours. Unlike my usual trips when I have a specific list of items I am searching for, I was simply going to browse.

We did not end up taking any large items home, but I did find a couple of jewelry pieces like this gorgeous vintage locket (it actually opens!). I plan on putting a family photo inside.

Delicate little gold locket that I had to take home.
