REVIEW- LA Flea Markets- Rock n Roll Flea Market

Every 1st Sunday
The Regent Theater in Downtown Los Angles
$2.00 Entrance Fee
Vintage Clothing
Vinyl Dealers
I stumbled upon The Rock n Roll Flea Market on Instagram (@rnrflea) early in 2015. This event is relatively new, so my sister and I went on March 1st, unsure of what to expect. Built in 1914, The Regent theater is over 100 years old.  Cement floors and black painted walls create the feel. The ambiance is a bit dim. Vintage clothing vendors are the first to great you as you walk in, as well as the blaring rock n roll music being mixed by the DJ accompanied with projected footage of concerts from bands like ACDC and the Rolling Stones. There is a balcony upstairs with additional vendors and downstairs is a pizza place and a small bar that we didn't get a chance to check out. There is a fair share of vinyl record dealers, most of them reasonably priced. The vintage vendors cater to boho, hippie and hipster style. Most of the vendors take credit cards via Square but some are cash only.

A few business cards we picked up

Odds & Sods- To Sir With Love- Sgt Pepper
The clothing vendors weren't my style but my favorite clothing vender there was Hellhound Vintage, they had a handful of mod mini dresses and an excellent selection of quality ethnic wear (tunics, vests etc.) We also picked up a few records that we've been looking for at a decent price.

Parking is a challenge! There is street parking, which is FREE on Sundays but it's difficult to find a spot. The only other option would be to park in a lot and walk to the venue.

Hope this was informative!
Till next time my friends!
