I love it when my Sundays are productive and fun at the same time. The goal for this past day of rest was to go to the farmer's market, hit up the Melrose Trading Post for some interesting pieces for Coachella (more coming in a later post), buy some new work clothes and try somewhere new to eat. Sound like a lot? It was but I've got lots to show for it.
Even though I got to the farmer's market just before it was being packed up, I scored 3 baskets of strawberries, a pound of broccoli, shallots, garlic and mushrooms for all less than $15. Any suggestions for what I should prepare?
The Melrose Trading Post was quite busy, as it was a warm day, but I had a goal and it was to find some pretty feather earrings to accessorize with for Coachella. This flea market is very hit or miss. Of course, it also depends on what you're looking for. The same booths are there every Sunday, so the pickings can become redundant if you go often. I do enjoy the people watching though - it's a great place to get style ideas for both men and women.
