I would also like to mention that this weekend, Saturday Feb. 19 from 7 am to 3 pm, is the bi monthly Flea Market held in the local Altadena/Pasadena Eagle's Lodge parking lot. It is the first and third Saturday of each month. It is at 455 E. Woodbury Rd. in Altadena. It started out as once a month and was so successful that it is now twice a month. Lots of cool junk and odds and ends.
