New Hours For Silver Lake Flea Market

Formerly every Saturday at Micheltorena Elementary School, the “Silver Lake Art, Craft & Vintage” flea market will now take place the last weekend of every month, both Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm.

While I don’t know the specific reasons for the change, I have visited this flea market on several occasions and always found it lacking in vendors. The space is large enough and the vendors that are there have a decent selection, but to draw a crowd, I think they simply need more. Perhaps moving the fair from every Saturday to just one weekend a month will encourage more vendors to participate. I also think it would be more appealing if they offered a broader selection of “arts” and “crafts” vendors, as it is mostly just vintage clothing. I love shopping for vintage clothing, but if you’re going to bill something as “Art, Craft & Vintage,” you might want to strive to carry an equal selection of those things.

One thought on “New Hours For Silver Lake Flea Market”

  1. I have gone to the market a few times and have liked it.
    I have been told by a few vendors that the people who manage the market are disorganized. In addition, they do no noticeable outreach (I am a parent at the school and you would think the Market would ask the principal to pass out flyers to the parents and staff, being that the Market does give some money to the school. The principal would be happy to do this but the market management has not offered to do this).
    Beside the web site, the only adverting they do is the bed sheet hanging on the school fence.
    The school stakeholders would love to see the Market thrive. But if it does not, we will start our own. With all the cuts to LAUSD, the schools needs to raise money anyway possible.
