We're halfway through the week, which means it's time to start planning the weekend. In addition to epic sales, NY market turned LA obsession Artists & Fleas is set to host its second showcase of the year, and this time they're going big. Taking place in DTLA's Arts District at 647 Mateo Street this Saturday, February 21st and Sunday from 11am to 5pm, this will be A&F's largest West Coast show to date.
Locals will be treated to more than 75 vendors (including five airstream mobile shops!), food truck treats by favorites like Zugo and Amazebowls (read: seriously good acai bowls), and vintage photo transformations by Tintypebooth. Fashion highlights include custom hat fittings and millinery by Una Hats and unisex wooden watches by Mistura.
Free stuff alert: the first reader to email firstname.lastname@example.org scores a free swag bag filled with the best of Artists & Fleas's vendors!
