NY-born Artists & Fleas is still going strong after making its West Coast debut over a year ago, and this weekend marks its last shopping sesh of the summer. After taking a break last month, the indie marketplace invades its regular DTLA Arts District haunt this Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 5pm.
Over 70 local talents will be selling handcrafted and vintage merch throughout the weekend, like edgy-cool tie-dye dresses by John & Mickie, luxe leather bags by Swing Dash, geometric gems by Hy Jewelry, natural apothecary products by No-Tox, and more. On top of artisanal retail therapy, there'll be henna tattoos by Gypsy Bazaar, old-timey instant portraits by Tintype Booth, and healthy grub from trucks like Amaze Bowls (yummy açai concoctions) and Falasophy (vegetarian-friendly falafel dishes).
Plus, the first 50 shoppers each day score a free tote bag, and everyone scores a chance to win a $25 gift card to the market when they sign up for A&F's email list both days. The full list of vendors—including a handful of fashionable trucks—is right here.
