Oh my gosh, how the Treasure Island Flea Market has changed in my eyes! I went several years back when it was held in a warehouse and was so unimpressed. My two best friends and I have been wanting to go flea market shopping together for awhile, so decided to give it another shot since it’s so close. We planned a day, booked a Getaround car, and experienced one of the best flea market days we’ve ever had! Leave it to low expectations to really throw you for a loop. You must make a trip if you haven’t been- it’s every last weekend of the month.
It was a seriously beautiful day, and the abundance of gems was endless. We didn’t leave empty-handed to say the least! I found the most perfect vintage rug for my kitchen, which I have been keeping an eye out for months. I got such a great deal on it, still giddy thinking about it. We discovered this little nomadic retailer called Maude, which had the best art prints, leather goods, and beauty products ever. Seriously spent 5 minutes there just taking photos, the founder is a branding whiz. We also really enjoyed starting our day off with food trucks and coffee to give us some fuel before we browsed.
We ended up with a full trunk just in time to drop off the car, and enjoyed the rest of our Sunday.
Hope you’re enjoying your week so far!
