Last week marked the second installment the Arts District Flea, DTLA's newest weekly shopping bazaar. Located in an exposed brick warehouse just one block west of healthy resto Urth Caffé, the three-day marketplace offered a handful of apparel, accessories, vintage and furniture vendors, with plenty more expected to join the buzzy new retail haunt's rotating lineup of local designers and indie boutiques.
Among the stylish standouts we spotted at the 15,000-square-foot space last Friday were home decor fave Society of St. Vincent de Paul thrift store, stylish streetwear e-tailer Shy Wilder, mobile shop Treehaus and Americana-inspired men's brand OPNMRKT. With a capacity for up to 60 vendors, the flea market is slated to host 15 anchor vendors on a regular basis, organizer Casey Dady tells us. So far, Society of St. Vincent de Paul has already signed on for a three-month stint, and Dady says he eventually hopes to turn the event into an after hours neighborhood block bash with DJs, live music and a food truck by this summer. Nice!
Arts District Flea is Friday through Sunday from 10am to 6pm.
