YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY TCHOTCHKES
I now live within a couple of miles of Pasadena's Rose Bowl. I don't give a hoot about footbowl (is that what they play there?) but once a month they have a gigantic flea market--the subject of this week's arts and culture piece, which begins:
If you believe, as I do, that everyone should own at least one battered tin peacock-green bread box, or a chipped enamel coffee pot of robin’s egg blue, then the Rose Bowl Flea Market is your place.
Held every second Sunday of the month at Pasadena’s Rose Bowl, the event bills itself as the most unusual flea market in the world.
There are booths specializing in everything from hand-embroidered vintage hankies to punk T-shirts to scissors. There are rugs, Roseville pottery, antique typewriters, sewing machines and record players.
There is patio furniture galore: wrought iron plant racks, filigree benches, café tables. There are made-to-order mid-century modern sofas and people who deliver.
