Movin' Right Along

I moved! If you know me, you know I cook. A lot. I have created a blog about my adventures and mishaps in the kitchen and would just LOVE for you all to follow and laugh at me, share recipes and try out mine!

I won't really be using this one anymore. What's the point of 2 blogs anyway?

Would love to see you there!

Rose Bowl = Real Bore

In light of my 2010 New Years Resolution, I am blogging! I decided to create my blog around what I do best, bargain shop. It's a blessing and a curse really, my hunting never stops! First on the agenda...The Rose Bowl.

2 years ago I went to The Rose Bowl Flea Market and found some really incredible finds. Vintage clothing galore (which I will admit is not my forte), jewelry, fun apartment accents and furniture. NOW? It's more of a fashion show than a flea market. If you like people watching, go there. If you want to find a good deal on things you don't really need, skip it. Now that this is a "trendy" event, all the vendors have doubled or even tripled their prices. We saw a record player THAT DIDNT EVEN WORK priced at over $100. You would get a better deal shopping the "found" section at Anthropologie than coming here. Really. Considering its an $8 cover to get in and $10 for a lemonade I figured I had already spent enough.

If you live in Los Angeles or are visiting, I would highly suggest avoiding this flea market and saving your pennies for either the Pasadena Community College one. Continue to shop the Jet Lag $1 sale on Sundays and Craigslist is ALWAYS an amazing option for vintage/modern furniture that people are desperate to get rid of.

Next up, sample sales....ooooh! Also, I will always post a sample sale date and address when I find out about it. A lot of times I resell what I find, which I will also post.

Happy Hunting!

Merry Merry!!

Merry Christmas! I JUST got into the spirit, and it's 12:15 AM on Christmas Eve. Haha, of course. My goal for 2010 is to blog more. I feel like I need a theme of what to blog about. I think it will be about bargain shopping. I always manage to find incredible deals on great things. So, adventures in bargain shopping it is! I never go to thrift stores though, so it will not be adventures in thrifting. Not a fan of that. I will leave you all with a cute picture of my living room and our tree (Ryan was in charge of the stockings haha- see upper left corner, also ignore the gigantic AC unit, it's such an eye sore!) Also I can't leave out a picture of my 2nd favorite guy Curtis!

Shameless Promotion

So, if any of you know me outside of the internet world you know that (whether I chose it or not) resale is my forte. I have been working in it foreverrrrr. I currently work for a consignment shop and have been given the opportunity to have my own little shop. I have been wanting to do this for years. It's starting online so my overhead is much smaller. I actually started in June and didn't know how it was going to go so didn't mention it much. WELL. its doing better than I really ever thought. So well that I am able to take on more consigners! I like to keep it high end. Its more worth it that way, for both parties. SO if you or any of your friends are needing to clean out their closet let me know and I would be happy to send you info. And if you don't live in Los Angeles like me thats fine- ship it to me and I'll even pay for the shipping :)
