    Wow, I never knew there were flea markets like this in LA. A Rose Bowl flea market? Who knew!

      It sounds like a cool location for a flea market- maybe you can shop and tailgate at the same time 😉

    I’ve lived in LA over 2 years and I somehow have never been to any of the flea markets. Thanks for piquing my interest, I really need a new pair of vintage sunglasses!

    I really enjoy going to famous flea markets when I travel, although I never usualyl buy anything.

    I’ll have to work on my “finding” skills before heading to LA so I can check these ones out!

    Ooo i never miss Rose Bowl.. It is really amazing. Little tip dont go there without hat or little umbrella in the summer— also water!. Its so big and sometime difficult to sit somewhere or get water!!

    I will try Melrose this week. Hope it will be a good hunting!

    PS> First time I read something about PCC, next month I ll be there. Thanks!

    The PCC is new to me. Will try it soon. One of the best markets is called “the Stables” in London. It’s in an 18th century brick stable that goes on for ever. Sells everything. GREAT prices.

    Thanks for the advice! I wanted to go to Rose bowl during my holiday here but think I will go to Melrose instead as I don’t have too much time in LA =)

    The Long Beach Antique Flea Market is the place to be every third Sunday of the month. I was a rose bowl regular— not any more. Long Beach vets it is— better deals and nicer people. I have always come away with the best vintage finds.

    hi-do you have any suggestions for vintage shopping in or @ LA on a Friday or Saturday? The best flea market i went to in france was in Paris, in a suburb, not the famous, huge one that everyone goes to. the suburban flea had regular people, great finds, & low prices. I found it in a book from my local library. thanks

    i always believe that we can see the culture of one place through their flea markets. they are cheap yet provide even some limited stuff.

    How can you leave out the Long Beach Flea Market at Vets Stadium with at least 800 dealers- my Fav. It’s on the 3rd Sunday of every month, no new stuff here- just vintage, antiques and colletibles

    Hi there! Does anyone know which of the Rose Bowl Flea Markets are the featured or bigger events. I think they do 3 bigger ones during the year. Of course, they have them monthly. I couldn’t find any details on the site. Thanks

    The hot, new flea market in LA is Topanga Vintage Market. Over 160 vendors, and lots of free parking! It’s on the 4th Sunday of the month (except December) at the Westfield Promenade, in Woodland Hills. Right off the 101!

    We’ve picked the best of LA’s vendors, and a whole lot of new faces. Come see! http://www.topangavintagemarket.com or check it on FB

    There’s also a new Flea Market Starting July 28th in Downtown Los Angeles. Called Downtown Flea. Apparently the 4th Sunday of every month.
