Despite the bevvy of bazaars for every type of Angeleno (stylish tots, cosplay stars, design lovers, and burners, to name a few), events for LA's stylish gents seem to be few and far between. Enter New York's Pop-Up Flea, which is finally bringing its menswear-happy marketplace to the West Coast this weekend.
Happening on the rooftop level of The Grove's parking structure this Friday (3 to 8pm), Saturday (11am to 7pm), and Sunday (12pm to 6pm), the event was founded by the folks behind A Continuous Lean—hence the focus on Americana-inspired, well-crafted goods. Over 50 apparel, vintage, accessories, grooming, home furnishings, and decor vendors are on the roster, including local boutiques like American Rag, Broome St. General Store, Wittmore, and Lot, Stock & Barrel alongside Cali brands like Industry of All Nations, Made Solid LA, Baxter of California, Jungmaven, and others.
There's more: cult-cool merchants from near and far include Deus Ex Machina, Alex Crane, Schott, Tanner Goods, Upstate, Ursa Major, Corridor, Counter Space, Bison Made, and tons of others; there'll also be drinks and food by Alfred Coffee, Church Key, Prova Pizzeria, and other top-notch grub makers.
