Biting the Bullet – I met Taylor at this Lucky Shops LA event I wrote about for Mondette and originally fell for her haircut, before being drawn to her jewelry. She likes to scavenge for vintage pieces and it looks like she has it down to a science. More on her favorite places for vintage jewelry after the jump, but take a close look at her skull necklace, molded from bullet casings.
I can’t escape an LA store without seeing a handful of skulls everywhere I go. Just today at Opening Ceremony, they had a green leather skull keychain at $100+ because the skull had a real gold spike as a tooth! So cool. I digress… Where are Taylor’s 3 favorite flea markets for vintage jewelry?
The Long Haul – This is a sample haul of Taylor’s vintage finds. Her 3 favorite places to find these steals, in calendar order are:
1. Melrose Trading Post at Melrose & Fairfax (open every Sunday)
2. Rosebowl Flea Market (open 2nd Sundays) – World renowned and overpopulated and you better be there at the crack of dawn because wholesalers are loading up while you’re still sleeping it off!
3. Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectible Market (open 3rd Sundays). OMG, beware – the Long Beach website will burn your eyeballs.
Taylor, you have fun taste and thanks for the snaps!
