Weekend Trip Journal - Balboa: Day 2 - oh, flea market, how i adore thee...

this is finn's donut that he ate on the way to the long beach flea market... or at least, partially ate. i guess we know why he loves donuts...

so, sunday morning after the wedding lucy, finn and i joined bev, laurie and paige for an outing to the long beach flea market. if i lived in california i think i would go to one of their flea markets every single weekend. i absolutely love them. i adore them... oh, how i adore them. next time you are in california hit one up. it will not disappoint. so much to look at even if you don't buy a thing...
the junk jewelry table was a big hit with my kids. lucy made out with some free items since the lady kept giving her stuff. she said she had a four year old granddaughter in mexico that she never gets to see. she seemed very excited to dig up anything pink for lucy. so sweet.
finn really wanted this watch with a football chain, but i talked him out of it. $5 seemed a bit much...
my one purchase was a fabulous old letter press type drawer that we hope to hang and keep little trinkets in... lucy started before we left the flea market.
ah, a day well spent...
