Vintage Flea Markets

As an Etsy vintage seller I have always wanted to sell at some vintage market or craft fair. But I also don't want to sell at a fair that has actual serious sellers/collectors that do so for a living (I am only a part-time seller that does so for fun). I also don't want to sell at a huge market place where I can't talk to customers and enjoy the market myself. I am considering one in Pasadena, Downtown LA and Silverlake. I'll be scouting these markets to see which one I'd like to try to try out as a seller.

 

I decided to go to the Pasadena City College Flea Market to check it out and see if I want to sell there. I enjoyed the large variety of items for sale and while a lot of objects are one or a kind, these sellers sure know what they are selling and charge a lot for what they have. The flea market is outside in the parking lot and the three floors of the parking structure, which is great for sellers and buyers, since it's out of the California sun.
