L.A. loves its swap meets. Angelenos spend so much of their weekends trolling for vintage finds, they’ve made institutions
out of markets from Long Beach to Pasadena. But until now, there was never an outlet in the city’s historic core. Enter Downtown
Flea Second and Fourth, from Main to Broadway, on the fourth Sunday of every month with an eclectic mix of antiques dealers,
temporary-tattoo artists, a rock-climbing wall, and a buffet of food trucks. To help you navigate, there’s the free FleaHunt
app, which includes a map and guides shoppers on a scavenger search for deals and prizes. Especially worth seeking out are
the colorful handwoven bags at Wayuu Tribe and the hanging glass terrariums at Bird and Feather.
