Swapmeet

I enjoy shopping in many places and finding amazing thrift stores but I think the one place I love to shop the most is the Swapmeet. Here in Vegas we have this HUGE swapmeet on Cheyenne and boy is it full of wonders and beautiful gems, that is, if you have the patience to look for it. My father has been taking our family to the swapmeet since I was a little girl.  It is predominately Hispanic but you can always find interesting looking people there. My favorite part about the swapmeet? Is that it isn't infested with hipsters looking for the coolest "thrift/vintage" store. People who go to the swapmeet sincerely just like awesome things for low prices.
I ended up getting this cute little bag that has a this sweet 20s vintage feel to it for a dollar. Whether it actually is, who knows? I then found some necklace charms. The first one just looked cool so I picked it out but I then looked at it closer after I bought it and it has all of the zodiac signs around this cool pearl thing. How precious! Lastly I saw one with a sweet flower that looked very romantic.

The rest of the photos are just pictures of my little adventure with my father. Enjoy!

Adieu,
Rosy
