Rose Bowl

It's been a few months since I've been to the Rose Bowl. This weekend I made the trek to Pasadena and came home with a few goodies plus a sunburn.

The trunk is handmade. I'm assuming someone made it for artist's tools or carpentry tools. There a divider inside and it's got some interesting hardware one it. I bought it intending to use it as a second nightstand but it doesn't fit. Damn.

The pan was a great find. It's a vintage Le Creuset roasting pan in perfect condition. I now need to buy a chicken and roast that sucker.

I also left the Rose Bowl with a few regrets. There was a brass trunk, a vintage ukulele and a pair of orange stilts that are currently haunting me. Yes I can play the ukulele and walk on stilts. No, not at the same time.

On a related note Dave Hester, the super annoying YUUUPPP! guy from Storage Wars was there hawking hats, shirts and miscellaneous other crap with "YUUUPP!" emblazoned on it. The sad part was people were buying it! When do you wear that? Are you watching TV and Storage Wars comes on and you say "Hold on! I gotta put my YUUUPP! shirt on!'?


  1. That Le Cruet pan is beautiful!
    I can't stand whatshisface... You can be a business person and be gracious at the same time. One does not exclude the other.

  2. nice!

    p.s. I'm having a giveaway if you'd like to check it out! xx

  3. Oh terrible! I don't know why he feels the need to be so annoying.

    What you brought home is wonderful. But from the sounds of it, those others would haunt me too. Not so much the orange stilts, I'm less than sturdy in sandals.

    Great stuff!

  4. I've always wanted to shop at the Rose Bowl! Sadly, since I live on the other coast, it might be awhile! Anyway, that YUUUP guy stuff is out here too- just the other day my husband saw someone with a giant YUUUP sticker across the back of his pickup truck. I like the show, but I totally don't get that!
