SCENE | Flea Markets
I snagged some flea market photographs for the Tomboy Style book—these two 1920s photos in particular didn't make the final cut—but I really love them and wanted to give them a home here. Beyond book research, I am a pretty serious devotee to the flea markets, especially when I'm on the hunt for something. There are dozens of monthly flea markets in the L.A. area, including the storied Rose Bowl, so I thought I'd share a list of my three favorites. I'd love to know where your favorites are around the country too!
