Weekend Warrior: Antique Edition

Sometimes I feel like my entire weekend revolves around finding that perfect antique. I’ve been to random parts of town, swap meets, flea markets, and crazy apartments that have items listed on Craigslist. I’ve endured many a sunburn and mastered the art of digging in my purse for cash, negotiating, and holding an umbrella during rainy flea market trips.

This weekend, I was victorious. Saturday, though not feeling well, I made it out to an awesome combined estate sale. I ended up with the perfect chair (called a Chinese Yumu, according to my sources) and saw a lot of really cool stuff.

My Chinese Yumu Chair. I wasn't sure how it would fit into my home, but I just had to have it.

Sunday was the Rose Bowl. It was hot this weekend in LA. I wore a shirt that covered my shoulders and wore SPF 60 because I learned from my last hot Rose Bowl experience. I still got a little crispy on my chest, and my farmers tan is oh so pretty but I did end up with some great stuff!

My flea market finds. Yesterday I was all about the wood! I love the unique shapes. In the back is a German pitcher and a dansk hot plate. I love the funky ice bucket. I have a thing for vintage bar stuff lately.
