Vintage shopping trip

Hi Everyone
 Happy Friday
This Sunday is the Long Beach antique market 
aka swap meet
 If you have never been it is worth the trip 
 not as large as the Rose Bowl in Pasadena
{it is huge}
 but it is filled with amazing vintage treasures
I am a frugal girl on a budget so I look for
 great bargains as well as great treasures like this white  polka dot vase
that I bought for 5 dollars and still adore
  I always look for  
~White Ironstone~
Looking for vintage treasures for clients, my online shop and photo shoots
 is so fun!!
Many of you don't know that it was my handsome husband who introduced me to flea markets and swap meets
 He asked me to go to the swap meet on one of our first dates 
I had NO idea what it was or what to wear 
so of coarse I wore a pretty dress and high heel shoes 
full on makeup
(he loves this story} 
I was in
with swap meets and flea markets
My handsome Husband
he has a great eye for treasures
we look forward to shopping together
I am one lucky grateful girl
