Rose Bowl Fun

A trip to The Rose Bowl in Pasadena is always fun, but also very tiring. Five hours of walking and we still didn't see it all! We came home with some goodies so I can't complain too much. Here are some things that I would have LOVED to bring home, but didn't.

This piece would be the ultimate DREAM piece for a shop. I think I would make it into a counter and hang the mirror on the wall behind it..AMAZING, but it was out of my price range and I wouldn't have a spot for it right I'll just have to DREAM about it.

When my daughter saw this, she swore it would fit in the back of the car, but I think that would have meant one of us would have to stay in Pasadena. It was probably the prettiest little dresser I've ever seen.

This was awesome. The stand had a foot pedal which would raise & lower the mannequin. We both wanted this too, but it was $650.

And then...there's always the strange. This chair received lots of looks.
Industrial seems too have taken over. Every aisle had something industrial and this space had quite a selection of entertainment stands. This was just one. Industrial items were THE hottest items selling today.

If we had a need for bar stools, I would have somehow tied these to the roof of the car. :)

An old Coca-Cola cart. Cool, but not sure what I'd do with it!

I have a weakness for children's furniture and this little pink set was adorable.

I have never see so many grain sacks in one space!

This would be the most awesome shop display piece for jewelry!
It was from the 1800's and very expensive.

I love all the pictures you took Nancy! The last time I sold at the Rose Bowl was back in November, I think. My husband was sweet enough to tend the booth while I did a little bit of "run-by shopping".
He would call me my cell when he needed a price or to tell me that one of my regulars wanted to see me, then I'd have to run back and wait for another chance to get away and shop again. I really miss it but it was so much work. I just started a booth at a local antique shop, it's five minutes from my house and I don't have to load a truck or get up at 4 o'clock in the morning. YAY!!! I would love to have my own shop someday too(sigh). I can't wait to see your next post with all the goodies you got!

Have a wonderful week,

Hi Irma!
I have never sold at Rose Bowl but I know it's s much work! You and your husband make a great team from the way you described your day selling. :) So where is your antique booth? I have a shop in San Diego called The Attic. If you ever visit, I hope to meet you!

Glad you and Jenny had an enjoyable day. That chair is different! I like that stand but not at $650.00! Can't wait to see what you did purchase.
