Vintage Market Frenzy!!!

Hi, its Amy.

February was a busy amazing month! Not only was Junk Bonanza taking place in Del Mar but, Junk in the Trunk was back! And I visited the Long Beach Flea market for the first time.

Junk Bonanza took place on a rainy weekend. (Being in Southern California, every one

knows we do not get much rain. This year has been exceptional.) This market took place in Del Mar, an upscale area of San Diego county. The fairgrounds are large and diverse and always bring back great childhood memories of fairs and fireworks during the summer. It was held in one of the halls and there were so many new vendors. It was such a fun day meeting everyone and seeing all the great pieces. Paint n’ Paddles held a workshop, that dozens of people enjoyed. All the vendors we saw told us they had a very successful weekend.

The following day, I forced  my husband and sons to go to the Long Beach flea market. This market is an eclectic array of

vintage and re-purposed and unique finds. One booth had some of the springy animals from our childhood playgrounds. Another had Pokemon (vintage to my son-lol) and some beanie babies. (Alex and I found a few that  are coveted-scooped those up to resale).

This past weekend, hubby and I snuck up to the Pomona fairgrounds for the Junk in the Trunk market. SQQQUUUEEL  What a great market!!! I just love that it and the venue was awesome. Food trucks definitely are a hit! We got to see some of our favorite vendors, meet amazing new ones, and hubby finally bought the brown sugar mold he has been wanting. See our instagram for more pictures. Now we are on the hunt for some glass floats for the baguette bowl.

I don’t get out to the markets enough and when I do, I so love it. Visiting these markets and building We’re Mad About with my mom has been a true blessing and having the support of my husband and family has brought us all closer. We hope you all enjoy our blog and this journey we are on. We truly appreciate you all being here.

Thanks for reading… Amy xoxo
