Long Beach Antique Market

"One man's trash, is another man's treasure"

I spent my Sunday morning with my friend Katy at the Long Beach Antique Market, which takes place every third Sunday of each month.
My favorite part about this Antique Market is that there are SO many cool furnitures and house decor to see. After our morning extravaganza, we drove down the beautiful PCH to Seal Beach, where we ate at the Crema Cafe. I highly advise anyone to visit here if given the opportunity. The family friendly atmosphere along with the welcoming staff are a couple of reasons why the locals rave about this place.
 (not to mention the amazing food)

Flea market tips:
1. Don't dress too flashy or wear really nice clothes
2. Don't low ball the seller too much
3. If you go towards the end, the seller is much more lenient on pricing
4. If you buy several items at once, offer a lower price
5. Bring a big bag
6. Wear your walking shoes! These lots are big--
7. Bring CASH ($5 entry fee)
8. Be friendly! If you talk with the sellers, 
they will most likely work with you on a deal
Christmas party anyone?

The Crema Cafe in Seal Beach- Great brunch spot 
Popular for their Seal Beach Omelet, Breakfast Crepe, Breakfast Burrito, and Eggs Benedict!
I ordered the Seal Beach Omelet with Crema's Whole Grain Bread and Roasted Potatoes
Katy ordered the Roasted Vegetables Benedict
My outfit:
