Vintage Finds at the Rose Bowl

Last weekend my daughter Madison and I went to the Rose Bowl Swap Meet while she was home from school.  We love going and since she's been away at college I've had to go having her for the shopping trip was a treat!  She's got a great designer eye and scored this beautiful glassware set, granted she's only 19, but she for some reason loves glassware and dishware especially jadeite.  After some bargaining she got the lady down to $25 on this beautiful set and she's going to let me use it for staging until next year...this year she is still in a dorm :)


She also found this great mixer along the way...only $18 and has a jadeite bowl which sold separately would have been three times that!  Does it work, we still don't know but who really cares!  It looks great even it if doesn't work and yes I will use it for staging somewhere along the way!


The best find of the day was this vintage linen drapery we grabbed from a vendor who I will visit again and again..I loved her stuff.  I have a client I've been working with over the last few months that we've been trying to find just one more fabric to bring everything together in her recently purchased totally cool Olde Town Pasadena Condo.  It couldn't be just any fabric from Calico Corners or downtown though, she has a specific style I'd like to say is "the original Anthropologie"!  Everything has history and meaning but is never "matchie matchie" but all works together!  My client is 67, but you'd think she was in her early 50's - I just love her!  Anyway this was the icing on the cake and I'll share after photos of how the Condo came together with this one vintage fabric.
