It happened, folks. After so much anticipation, DTLA's new monthly flea market, Downtown Flea, officially launched this past weekend in the Historic Core. Our busy eastside jaunt included hitting up the jam-packed event, which was stacked with vibrantly-hued vendors, LA-made treasures and a whole lot of fashion trucks.

Parking was ample, the check-in process was rather smooth and sales were strong. Flip through our gallery for over 25 festive photos highlighting our favorite booth picks from all four lots, including SAbel's dreamy dresses, Few Bits' wooden wonders and Wayuu Tribe's rainbow-y baggage. We'll keep you posted on the deets for next month's flea.
