Treasure Hunting at The Long Beach Flea Market

Is your apartment looking a bit too much like a page from an Ikea catalog? Times are tough, and furniture is expensive. Most of us can’t throw down a paycheck or two on an armoire. Less expensive home-decorating options are available, though scarce. Said Swedish super-store usually gives you a mass of particle board and the same design scheme as thousands of college dorms, and Craigslist's furniture offerings more often than not leave you with a strange rash and at least one mysterious stain. So where is the discerning frugal interior designer to go? Voted one of the best flea markets in the country and with lots of treasures to be found, the Long Beach Antique Market is a once-per-month event featuring more than 800 vendors sprawled over 20 acres. Quality pieces ranging from clothing to couches are guaranteed to be unique and interesting. Plus, strolling in the sunshine of Veteran’s Stadium is so much better than strolling under the fluorescent lights of a corporate maze

I still can't stop laughing about my apartment looking like an Ikea commercial, because it hits too close to home. I am so tired of having the same stuff I see everywhere else and have been really wanting to change it up. I could certainly start by treasure hunting for a few unique collectibles. Who knows where that might take me if I stay open-minded.
