Antique markets are a perfect way to find treasures that are vintage at low prices. Instead of buying a brand-new dresser, cabinet, lamp, necklace, bracelets, etc., why not own something made years ago in great quality and at a great price? This way, you are also helping the environment in many ways.
A Treasure Trove of Antiques In Our Very Own Long Beach
A trove of treasures can be found at The Long Beach Antique Market. It has over 800 sellers from across the county that are selling their wares. Every month, I can't wait for the 3rd Sunday. I put on my best walking shoes, cover myself in sunscreen, plop on my favorite floppy hat, and I hit the pavement running.
The Thrill of Finding The Perfect Antique
Ah! The thrill of the find, that one thing that can get your adrenaline pumping. Where can that treasure be found? Is it among the rack of vintage clothing, or perhaps at the bottom of an antique trunk? Or just maybe among the book bindings of that beautiful booth where the aroma of old leather-bound books permeates the air as you pass by? But then something catches my eagle eye, a precious vintage perfume bottle that resembled the one my mother kept on her dresser. I take a moment to hold on and remanence about the days gone by, I then quickly pay for my sweet treasure and move onto the next find.
This can be you too, living the 3rd Sunday dream with a treasure map of vendors in your hand just waiting to fill your cart with that perfect vintage find. And who knows, you too may find a perfume bottle just like the one your mother kept on her dresser too.
Mark your calendars, the next event is Sunday March 21! Oh, and by the way my eagle eye often spies a Hollywood star shifting through the troves of treasure too. Ah, so many unexpected finds!
