Well, this is rather unexpected: we've just learned that indie-favored actress Marisa Tomei will be one of the hosts at next month's A Current Affair marketplace in DTLA's Cooper Design Space. Who knew she was a vintage fangirl? LA Times adds that Tomei will be joined by choreographer Fatima Robinson, actress Nathalie Kelley, and stylish/photographer Melodi Meadows. Quite an interesting bunch.
As mentioned, the A Current Affair pop-up is taking place Saturday, April 4th from 1 to 7pm and will feature rare retro finds from New/Found, Scout, Tavin Boutique, Stoned Immaculate Vintage, Raggedy Threads, Bustown Modern, Passenger Vintage, The Kit Vintage, Arrow and Anchor Antiques, and many more. Live beats will be provided by KCRW DJ Marion Hodges, and there will be an open bar. Buy tickets here.
