Rose Bowl Flea Market
Located at 1001 Rose Bowl Drive in Pasadena, California, The Rose Bowl Flea Market & Swap Meet is perhaps the largest most famous of all swap meets that are held in California annually. Held on the Second Sunday of each month, regardless of the weather, this swap meet has over 1800 vendors from all around the nation. They have booths and spaces set up so that they can readily display goods, services, merchandises, clothing, collectibles, handmade craft items, vintage items, furnishings (both new and used), paintings, fine art and more. If you want to find it, this is the place to look.
Rose Bowl Flea Market Well Worth Low Admission
Well worth the admission price, you’re sure to find bargains on anything you are seeking. The entertainment factor alone is worth paying for. People from all walks of life and dressed in a myriad of imaginable ways, will be milling about speaking in a variety of languages. All of the vendors are friendly and enjoy talking about their wares. A lot of them have a lot of personality and are a great deal of fun to chat with.
No Garage Sales!
If you’re tired of the hum drum of garage sales and smaller swap meets, you’re going to love this one. Vendors pay good money to gain a permit to sell on these premises. You won’t find junk that is worthless, nor will you find that painting that is worth $500,000 being sold for a mere dollar. What you will find is a group of professionals who are selling their merchandise and know what their merchandise is worth. Everything is high quality and well worth the price it’s being offered at. With a lower overhead than your local mall, you’re sure to find that you can net a great deal of savings by shopping at the flea market. If you’re a bargain hunter, this is the place to start. Some of the vendors will even negotiate a lower price or bulk sales deals. If you’re in the market for a great deal, you really have to see this.
Year Round Flea Market!
The best part of it all is that the Rose Bowl Flea Market is going on year around. You don’t have to wait for warmer summer months to hit this flea market. There is something here for everyone and you may find that you have a car full after you’re done shopping here. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. If you don’t find what you’re looking for this weekend, come back next weekend. You won’t leave empty-handed if you continue perusing the variety of vendors. One of a kind deals are abundant here and you’re sure to find something you like.
If you have children, this is a kid friendly flea market. There’s plenty of stuff for them to see and do. There are also food items for sale so if nothing else, you can find something for them to eat. With excellent security you’ll love this safe way to shop for you and your kids.
