L.A. thrifters and vintage aficionados can thank the folks behind The Odd Market for creating some of their favorite indie bazaars around town. (Co-founder Phillp Dane created the flea that inspired the beloved Melrose Trading Post at his alma mater.) His company's latest endeavor is at none other than the legendary John Marshall High School, where the new Los Feliz Flea now calls home every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Inspired by the Upper West Side's GreenFlea, the free weekly marketplace debuted last November at the Hollywood-faved architectural gem, which has starred in Grease, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and a slew of Disney shows and movies. Expect to find vintage and handmade clothing, jewelry, accessories, home decor, and art alongside collectibles, furniture, and more from a curated roundup of local vendors, which are listed each week at Los Feliz Flea's website.
Food trucks will keep shoppers fueled, while parking and admission are free, too. Oh, and everyone in the family is welcome, including your pups. Local bands and musicians will be also showcased during the flea's "Music in the Green" series. As far as getting there, the parking lot entrance is just off Griffith Park Boulevard, while the flea market is accessible via the lot or St. George Street.
The market's still growing, but there's enough space for 100 vendors and 10 food trucks. Interested in joining the lineup? Drop a line to the Los Feliz Flea's organizers here.
