How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The Santa Monica Outdoor Antique & Collectible Market always makes for an engaging, enjoyable morning -- especially if you happen to be a photographer! Then it's positively like catnip for your kitty!! So much to see -- and I'm not just talking about the stuff that's on sale! Not certain who tops who -- the vendors or the browsers -- but there are some amazing, wonderfully appealing characters at this market. Aside from the human display, the wares range from exotic -- like vintage Louis Vuitton and Chanel purses -- to tres ordinaire -- like the crap you helped your parents throw out when they downsized from the suburban ranch house! Trinkets and treasures -- this is one market that is worth the price of admission, especially if it's with Goldstar!
