San Bernardino Swap meet!!

OK. I must reeealy like you guys, because I am about to divulge a little honey hole I frequent...It's not in the best neighborhood...

...The people can be a lil' shady...

, All 32 teeth may or may NOT be present in their craniums at ALL times...

BUT the price is RIGHT  bay~buh!!!!

Yes Junkers, I am referring to the San Bernardino swap meet! I LURVE this place! Seriously, I have never paid more than $10 dollars for ANYTHING I have EVER bought here. I wanted to share some pics with you guys of my trip today with the hubbs...

So...Up at the ass crack of dawn of course!

We got there and it was 41 degrees?!*&%$ are you KIDDING me! For Southern Californians, this is cause for Goose down, North Face PARKAS!

BUT, once we get there! All is right with the world..40 degrees, schmorty degrees! I am in my ELEMENT ya'll!

What I really like about this place is that, it is so REAL. Now, don't get me wrong! I luv me some Barn House boys...or Retreat shows BUT that's for retail shoppers =) They are beautiful and romantic looking and soooo shabby, they're just...DIVINE! but. I'm a buyer, and basically San Bernardino is the TOTAL ass end opposite of that! lol. We're talkin' tarps set out on the ground, banquet tables if your fancy, and HELL, sometimes they just have row after row of boxes YOU can dig through!

There was a lil' bit of everything today...From Antique to Shabby to Primitive/industrial to just plain ole' KITSCH! Take a look...

Antique heaters
Cool Hollywood Regency, glass ash trays = $12 bucks!
$10 brass 3 tier tray
                   Demented blow mold bunny? Yup, I'll take that for a DOLLAR!! He will be awesome at Easter =)
Bunch of old lamps
LOTS of vintage jewlery if that's your THANG
Ole' glass jugs? I'll take that...$2

  1. Oh what a find. I wish we had something like this in Ohio. I would go nuts.


  3. I would LOVE LOVE to go there - not just to buy but sell too. I do alot of antique shows, sell at 2 shops, on line stuff and flea markets here in cheese head land....looks like you and I have alot of the same taste, would have bought all that you did too. Blessings from Wisconsin

  4. SHUT UP GIRL!!! I need to get out to some of the janky fleas out here and pick up some smalls. YES you should put on a show down there! And invite me! I'll so go down there for one if you do it! Congrats on the store too! I have a meeting on the 18th for something that might be in the works. *fingers crossed*
