A Visit To Melrose Trading Post

This weekend I had a friend visiting from Atlanta and, while I refuse to do touristy things, I will do quintessential LA things.  One of those things was a trip to the Melrose Trading Post yesterday.

The Trading Post is a giant outdoor flea market, with tons of vendors.  It runs all day every Sunday and you can find just about anything there.  We figured it would be fun to wonder around and see if we got lucky.

Some displays were pretty…

…some less so…

But I did get lucky!  Behold, my deer:

Pretty great, right?  Remind you of something? And they’ve already found a place in my home:

Tell me, did you have any fun adventures this weekend?



  1. oh the deer figurines are so pretty. Wish I had found something that awesome when I went. Great buy!

  2. Oh very pretty! Although my first thought is they don’t seem that travel-friendly should you ever need to pack them up, haha. Anyway, I love a good find, am always hauling things home and the local fleamarket is next week, so looking forward to that!
