When people ask Valentina “what she sells?” she usually answers “Stuff!”... But that’s a bit simplistic. She sells what she loves and is passionate about: vintage clothing, linens, ephemera, kitsch, children’s items, funky old stuff, interesting books, post cards, lace, suitcases, designer scarves, handbags and a lot more - it’s always different. She specializes in unqiue merchandise from the 50’s thru the 70’s. And did we mention she loves kitsch?
Valentina describes the Long Beach Antique Market as her best venue for selling. She also sells on Etsy (valentinasvintage) and eBay (supersonic-kittycat). Keep in touch on her Vintage blog. You can fund her one-of-a kind items in the White (middle) section this month so please stop by. You're sure to find something you can’t live without!
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.
