downtown la flea marketFlea markets are just a bunch of people selling their unwanted junk and old ladies rumaging through dusty trunks, right? WRONG. The Downtown Flea Market is an event all to itself, a much hipper cousin to your grandmama's swap meet of yore.

The Downtown Flea Market was started this year by Phillip Dane, a veteran of flea markets. In 1991 Dane created the popular Fairfax High Flea Market. This new Downtown market boasts antiques, collectibles, vintage clothing, and crafts and clothes by independent designers. In addition, there's a "chill out" area and local bands, DJs a wall climb and beer.

Amoeba is a proud sponsor of The Downtown Flea Market. The event takes place every fourth Sunday of the month, with this next event taking place Oct. 27. The market takes place in four parking lots in Downtown Los Angeles:

Yellow Lot: 246 S. Spring Street
Purple Lot: 253 S. Main Street
Green Lot: 243 S. Spring Street
Red Lot: 236 S. Broadway Street

Tickets are $5 for general admission and $25 for VIP. Find out more here. There's local parking, or you can take the metro and get a free ticket, find out more here.
