What a long strange trip....

A Long (Beach) strange trip that is...Sunday Debbie, Angela & I went on the hunt at the Long Beach Antique market. For those of you who don't know, Here in Southern California...the Long Beach Antique market is the older, uglier, and slightly gimpy the All mighty "Rose Bowl" in Pasadena.

Yah' kinda like this... Just sayin'

 The selection is good, but the pricing varies from completely delusional, yuppy, wanna be "Pickers" to not quite lucid, possible tweakers(?) selling their poor granny's stuff at just cat shit crazy prices! So......needless to say..yah' gotta' weed through the vendors! At least we had a list and a focus since we were on a time crunch!Buuttttt my A.D.D ass was all over the place! They had so much. WEIRD stuff!

Buckle up...I'm gonna run you all over this motha'!

Eewwww...Body Parts..everywhere!


  I am a complete SUCKER for vintage linens! Tablecloths,runners,hankies,doilies..yada yada yada..So for my kindred spirits out there, here's a little linen porn for ya'!....Bow chica wow wowwwwww

 OK..EERRRRRRRRRRTTT Stop right HERE. THIS. guy was a highlight of the day ..A real live leprechaun in the flesh! Fah' real you guys!!!!!.....

All in all we had a great time and accomplished our task..We went home with these beauts'

A huge panel from the back of a CA school bus from 1969...a kick ass laundry basket, industrial floor lamp

Some vintage Mexican art, & a friggin' solid metal tricycle! *Random, I know.

But I just have to give an honorable mention to a couple of my favorite pieces....

Ummm...can everyone see that this MONSTROSITY is propped up against a 4x4 JEEP! This woman is the longest woman in history! Uh...your height perception is just a TAD bit OFF their... Picasso

And THIS one.. well it's pretty self explanatory right? lurved it!

So there you have it, the Good the bad and the very frickin' ugly! In short, it is a great place to find one of a kind pieces and a JEM of a place to people watch! See ya' there!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss your 109 years young!

Well, I guess he would be if he were alive!
But, Any-who that's a technicality.....
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Your silly books still crack us up  * At least in THIS house*
You definitely came up with some great sayings! 
Here are a few of my favorite quotes...

Gracias Doctor...
