Flea Markets are a Los Angeles staple. When I first moved here 16 years ago, I was obsessed with Melrose Trading Post. Then the Pasadena Rose Bowl Flea Market. Then the monthly Long Beach Antique Market…. I take great pleasure in sorting through years of accumulated furniture, vintage clothing, various odds and ends, art deco jewlry. I crave the thrill of the hunt and scoring that one-of-a-kind piece I know will bring me joy whenever I look at it. My home is a mixture of luxury brands, but it is these vintage finds that make my home special… And NOW, I can do it all from the comfort of my couch!
The website FLEAPOP elegantly merges my unique style with a techie sensibility. Shop furniture and home decor from a roster of trusted local vendors (Atomic Threshold, Design Mix Furniture, Go Mod Retro) or employ the easy-to-use tag system to browse by style, item, function, or price.
Here are some treasures I’ve spotted at flea markets over the years:
Mid Century Modern Lucite Chairs
Milk Glass Collections
Mid Century Modern Gold Arc Lamps
