If you love LA's many flea markets but you a) don't have the time to make the trek, b) don't have the patience to meticulously scavenge for treasures, or c) love to explore but are overwhelmed with options whenever you do, then meet Frankie & Albert. Launched in collaboration with local creative agencies No Subject and Small Green Door, the online pop-up shop delivers hand-picked vintage home goods directly to your door.
Here's how it works: first, fill out this form to tell Frankie & Albert's savvy buyers what you're into. Next, wait for your first shipment of items tailored to fit your style. Then, decide whether you want to keep the curated box or swap it for another collection of delightful oddities. Easy.
Check out some of F&A's retro bric-a-brac here before it ends in April. Because we love you, we're giving away a box filled with mid-century goods to one lucky reader. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for your chance to win!
