Found at the flea market: Accidental surrealism

September 25, 2009 |  6:00 am


The Long Beach flea market is my favorite monthly shopping event in the world, so imagine my despair when I realized I was going to be out of town last weekend. (Thanks a lot, Rosh Hashana.) Luckily, my friend (and the Home section's page designer) Reuben Munoz was there bright and early to capture the best the flea market had to offer -- like the accidental vignette above starring a rocking jackrabbit. Munoz is truly the Long Beach flea market king. He's one of those 7-in-the-morning people who knows his favorite vendors by name. Read about his drought-tolerant plant finds at his fabulous blog, Rancho Reubidoux. While you're there, check out photos of his ongoing landscaping project. It's low-water, heat-tolerant and completely insane (in an inspiring way).
