Long Beach Flea Market
Antiques shows are where dealers unveil the A-list treasures that collectors have been waiting for, but they’re also major events on the social calendar.
The third Sunday of each month draws serious collectors, bargain hunters, and Hollywood set designers to the Long Beach Antique & Collectible Market for all things “chic, cheap, unique, and vintage.” Booths include everything from estate-sale jewelry and antique toys to vinyl-sheathed furniture and garden statuettes. Rest assured that you won’t get anything mass produced—at least not within the past two decades, given the show’s 20-year limit. Proximity to the sea, offerings from popular beer vendors, and the laid-back Southern California vibe add a leisurely feel to the outdoor market’s bohemianethos.
