Treasure Hunting This Weekend at the New Topanga Vintage Market

Wow, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a fabulous new vintage market just minutes away from my home!  This past Sunday was the 2nd monthly Topanga Vintage Market.  When I first heard about it last month, I thought it would be just a couple of vendors with very limited items.  Boy, was I wrong!  It was the complete opposite, and I didn't give myself nearly enough time to get through it as I had only set aside an hour (which I thought would be plenty of time).  However, after an hour and a half, my boyfriend had to pull me out of there.  At that point, I had only walked through half of it! 


Not only was the market great, but some of my favorite vendors and buyers were there too.  Vendor, Joey Wahl from Joseph Wahl Arts, was there with a ton of unique and fun items.  Joey just opened a vintage store next to his handcrafted cottage furniture store on Topanga Canyon Boulevard. 


Another one of my favorite vendors, Karen Chambers from LA Junk, was also at the vintage market with her amazing pieces.  She has such a great eye; I always love her stuff!!


And then there was Jennifer from The Old Painted Cottage who is my mentor.  I just love her blog and she always has such a great selection of items she sells for the home as well as gift-giving ideas.  I bought an incredible vintage hotel sign from her awhile back.  She does such a great job setting up her booth too; I’m obsessed!! 

Needless to say, I can’t wait to go to the next Topanga Vintage Market on June 24th!

One last thing…  For those of you who are interested, there is “Remnants of the Past Vintage Show” being held at the Alex Madonna Expo Center in San Luis Obispo, CA on June 2-3, 2012.  Cost is $10 per person.  For more information, check out

I’ll definitely be going!!  Ciao, and until next time my friends…

  2. Wow! Thank you for a beautiful post about our not so 'little' Topanga Vintage Market! Rose Bowl we are not, but it's nice to hear that it takes hours to properly peruse our aisles. I'll have to thank Jenn (Thanks again, Jenn) for introducing me to your wonderful blog and work. See you June 24th!
