We are always hunting for those extra special accessories or pieces that add a one-of-a-kind touch to our favorite looks. One of our most beloved places to find these close to home is at a local LA flea market. And we get to support other local creatives and our community along the way!

The Melrose Trading Post, hosted at Fairfax High School from 9am-3pm is just the place to find artisan goods, hand made art, vintage apparel, and antique furniture. Through the $3 admission fee and vendor fees the Melrose Trading Post awards grants to many programs at Fairfax High School and gives lots of students their first real world job. So you are giving back by shopping local! You also get to enjoy local live music as you shop. Check it out this Sunday for one-of-a-kind finds.

One of LA's most iconic flea markets, the Rose Bowl Flea, is open on the second Sunday of every month from 9am-4:30pm. General Admission is $9 and you are able to shop over 2,000 vendors all in one place! The Rose Bowl Flea is one of the most famous in the U.S. and has around 20,000 buyers each Sunday, so it is always a good idea to get there early to scoop up the best finds.
It is just the place to find something old or new and there is no shortage of special pieces to add to your closet or home! Not to mention they also have delicious food.
