The LA-area flea markets present perfect people-watching opportunities, shoppers who look distinctly “Los Angeles.” This couple, for example, would they be found in Kansas City? I was afraid to ask for a pic, and I was after a shot of those heels & seamed stockings anyway, juxtaposed by her burly man….
Or this couple; ok perhaps this fits a few other metro areas around the world….
this couple had a trolly full of black stuff; black antlers, black sheepskins. Still very stylish, and there were very nice, LA store stylists. It was only fitting to have a shot of them in front of the black & white awning stripe of our booth~
There were international shoppers too, who stood out in the crowd; this gentle couple is from Germany, and they left with some of our French merchandise~
These lovers have been dating long-distance for 13 years! She lives in Japan; cool Batman shades, no?
Love comes in many forms, here two best girl friends out for their Sunday Flea shopping in retro clothes and hats~
And some Lovers were not in love with another person, they were in love with say, the Color Pink. This shopper came with her mother and had a $10 budget. She bought our little scooter for $5, to go with her totally pink wardrobe. It was fun to see her ride off with a smile from ear to ear~
The scooter was actually a street find, discarded by someone after Christmas and had been spray painted black. It became one of our presentation items, to display the Pantone Color of the Year, “Honeysuckle.” This is the actual Pantone paint, and it sure does pack a punch, though it also perfectly matches the pink Cannes basket behind.
There were plenty of true lovers in the crowd; these two~
And these two, awww~
Check back tomorrow for our booth shots; here is a preview, our super egg painted, what else~ Pantone Pink!
