Long Beach Antique Market


Once a year my dad rents a spot at the Long Beach Antique Swap Meet. I usually go with him to help but haven't actually brought items to sell until this year. It was a lot of fun! We packed the truck on Saturday and woke up at 3AM yesterday to get in line. The swap meet opens at 5:30 for the early birds. I walked around and took a few photos with my phone to share with you guys. How cool is that orange lamp in the first photo?

Below is a look at our spot. Some of the Please Note paper goods even made an appearance!


If you're in the Los Angeles area, I highly recommend checking out this swap meet. It's the third Sunday of every month. Try to go early before it gets too hot, but if you can't beat the heat, they sell ice cold beer at the concession stand. You can't beat that!

    Hey Kid, the orange lamp is very cool but not as cool as your photos. Very nice.
