And look at THIS vendor's table! It was so overwhelming to me that I didn't even START to look through all of this. That's Linda in the second photo in the black top digging through to get some good pieces . . .
Sunday - it was (and still is!) a beautiful day in sunny Southern California. Linda B. and I met at the monthly Jamestown Flea Market in Old Town Tustin around 8:30am. The place was packed as I drove by looking for a place to park. I was excited to see so many vendors at this event (it's held every 4th Sunday of the month - rain or shine)
I picked up another suitcase from what I am now calling "my suitcase man", but I forgot to bring it in so I can't show you a photo. It was a steal for 10 bucks.
But I DID bring THIS in when I returned home. Iron . . . glass . . . vintage . . . rusty . . . and WHEELS! I don't know what it is about tables, chairs, or whatever has wheels, but I sure do like them . . .
I cleaned the glass and rolled this beauty out onto my deck. Not sure what I am going to use the bottom shelf for yet. Maybe more plants? Linda said she could see the whole thing as an outdoor bar with cocktail glasses, ice bucket, wine *smiles*. I guess I can always remove whatever is on it (at the time) and turn it into a serving cart.
Look at the wheels and the handle. I just love it! And the price? Well, it's on my deck right? *wink wink*
After the flea market (and a quick stop in Whimzy! - it was crowded) we walked a couple of blocks to the Aaron Brothers store.
Made a quick swoop through Vintage Lady and then walked over to Rutabegorz Restaurant.
On our walk back we saw this along the walkway . . .
We usually go to Quinn's after this flea market, but Linda had never been to Rutabegorz and they have their Strawberry Salad w/Chicken this time of the year. Again, no photos of the salad, but here are the drinks.
We dined outdoors :) . . .
Round #1 Pomagrani-tini and white wine. Round #2 some kind of orange sugar-rimmed martini and white wine.
Back to that salad. Romaine lettuce, fresh strawberries, chicken, feta cheese, red onions, sugared almonds (oooooh these just MAKE the salad) - all tossed in Rutabegorz' Raspberry Poppyseed dressing. Can you say YUUUUMMMEE?!
You can go to their website for additional locations in Fullerton and Orange. And vegetarians? This spot is for YOU.
