Me and my mate Edith from the U.K. have been taking advantage of the American Apparel Flea Market in downtown L.A. There was simply too much of a good deal there.
We arrived around 10:30AM on a Friday and the crowds were modest. We found parking relatively easy and went to work. Once inside, the first thing we noticed is the walls were lined with vintage finds; all of which were marked an additional 40% off. As you move closer inside the factory floor, you find your staples such as hoodies, v-necks, dresses, skirts, denim etc. Needless to say it was easy for one to get carried away. A live DJ set up provided music from Viva-Radio which was blasting the obscure indie as usual and bands such as Puro Instinct were scheduled to play during the evening.
The only bummer was the LONG lines. I recommend getting there early or else be prepared for a 45 minute-hour wait for checking out.
There were so many goodies! I wish I saw more micro-mesh though. Alas, I believe me and Edith shall be returning tomorrow because the event goes through Sunday. If you're in L.A., I would definitely take advantage of this awesome sale. It's the only one they've had in almost 3 years!
