Rose Bowl Arts and Crafts Show

Rose Bowl Arts and Crafts Show I was excited to see the Rose Bowl Arts and Crafts Show during my third visit in California.  This time, I didn't care for Disneyland, Universal Studios or any other amusement parks.  I want to see the arts and crafts side of California.


The Rose Bowl Arts and Crafts Show is organized by R.G. Cannng Attractions, and takes place every 2nd Sunday of the month at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena CA, in conjunction with the world famous Rose Bowl Flea Market and Market Place.  When we reached the place, I noticed that there are so many booths around the stadium, and I figured it would take hours to see everything.  So I decided to head straight to the arts and crafts section right away.  To be honest, I was pretty disappointed because there were not so many vendors showcasing their "real" craft.  I almost gave up until I saw a booth called Point Five Doll Dresses by Jennifer Ventura.  She makes really beautiful dresses for Barbie dolls.  Luckily, her companion has a Pullip doll with her so I was able to actually see how the dresses look on Pullips.  They are not perfect, but still works!  And I just had to buy one for each of my three Pullips.  Too bad Jennifer didn't have a website yet.  But I was encouraging her to make dresses for Pullip dolls.  I'm looking forward to seeing (and acquiring) more of her beautiful work.  Her booth totally made my trip to the Rose Bowl Arts and Crafts Show.  I can't wait to see these dresses on my Pullip dolls.
I also saw a vendor selling different kinds of beads and stones.  It was hard to resist but I did pretty good.  I only bought 4 items for a dollar each.
Next time I go to California, I'd like to go see this place again - with a lot of time in my pocket!
