LA Bucket List: The Rose Bowl Flea Market

I've wanted to go to the Rose Bowl Flea Market ever since moving to LA. It happens every second Sunday of the month. This past second Sunday I thought might be my last chance to attend, so I requested off work. 

A few days before I planned to go, inspiration struck. I knew what I needed to find there. 

Ever since my divorce, I've felt like I've become a better writer. I don't think those kind of things about myself a lot, I know I should be more confident in myself. I'm getting there. A few really close people to me have said so as well and it means a lot. I've always wanted an old school typewriter and my mission that day was to find one for under $100. I had resigned to the fact that t it probably wouldn't work for that much. 

Fifteen minutes into my exploration and I found a working gorgeous 1940s typewriter for $95. The moment I saw it I started crying and I knew it was the one for me. I cannot believe I get to have this beautiful thing in my life to remind me of LA, of inspiration and doing what I love.

On the way out, typewriter in hand, I stopped dead in my tracks. There sat a Futurama portrait of Fry! I immediately looked around for the artist {Noah Sturm} and dug through all of his prints. Finding a few for two important people in my life. 
His art is GORG, funny and reminds me of my childhood {LOTS of cool Nicktoon prints!}. I even purchased one that reminded me of myself, the one pictured above. I cannot wait to give these gifts away and to hang MINE in my new place...when that happens. Wether it be in LA or Colorado...the Universe will guide me to where I need to be.
