Arts / Antiques, Long Beach
Every 3rd Sunday of the month vendors come from all over the state to sell everything from vintage furniture and posters to Civil War weapons. You never know what you are going to find here.
What to buy: I have found several pieces of inexpensive and unique retro jewelry. I once stumbled on an autographed copy of a Jane Goodall book(my ultimate heroine).
What to pay: Many items do not have prices on them...make an offer. Most dealers expect to negotiate

I loved looking in the showcases on the Queen Mary. The shop didn't seem to be open that sold these but I had fun looking.
I especially liked the happy Buddha pieces.
