The Long Beach Flea


Being a bit of a flea market whore, I have been going to a flea market a week. Established in 1982 with over 800 sellers in the long beach stadium this flea was pretty good. In parts pricier than I felt the others I have visited were and in other parts junkier but I came away with a peacock feather fan ($15) and an 80s clock ($20) I have lusted after from my old friend Bleeker St vintage (she shouted at me ‘I recognise that fringe skirt’). We chatted about the perilous nature of Rose Bowl and how she’d had to be there at from 3 am till 3pm to catch the early morning Japanese buyers who come with torch lights.

My other friend had come with the intention of buying crates and plants to make a wall garden and cleaned up. Lots of people complimented her on her crate! Less of a success then other fleas but still interesting- I think I’m just all flea’d out!
