Phillip Dane Productions is launching an inventive and unique weekend event this summer that brings together the elements of a block party, flea market, and food festival. Located in the Historic Core of Downtown Los Angeles, Phillip Dane has christened it Downtown Flea. The four lot city marketplace will showcase up to 400 local indie designers and crafts people; emphasizing unique vintage, collectible and antique dealers.
“The Flea will take “Etsy” type designers from the web and showcase them in one distinct location,” Dane explains. “As far as I know, this event is the first of its kind to have a social media community within its website for the vendors: every seller will have their own url on DTFlea.com – allowing venders to showcase their products, write blog posts, connect with other venders, and bring awareness to their business.”
Downtown Los Angeles has become a frequented hot spot by Angelenos; for the area’s high end loft residential market, gourmet restaurant scene, hip bars and much more. To support this lively scene, Dane has chosen to give Los Angeles the Downtown Flea that will not only feature hundreds of vintage dealers, talented designers and creative crafts people but also a variety of food truck options, popular local bands, and a private VIP ‘chill zone’. There will also be a rock climbing wall to entertain the kids.
On the 4th Sunday of every month, the Downtown Flea in the Historic Core will be located in four parking lots located between 2nd and 4th Main to Broadway. The market is the ideal way to spend a Sunday – meeting up with friends and spending the day shopping, eating and listening to live music.
The four lots are:
- Yellow Lot: 246 S. Spring Street
- Purple Lot: 253 S. Main Street
- Red Lot: 243 S. Spring Street
- Green Lot: 236 S. Spring Street
Admission cost is $5, which allows you access all four lots! Tickets may be purchased on location at the ticket booth or online at www.dtflea.com. VIP tickets are extra and feature executive restrooms, complimentary beverages and lounge seating. The Downtown Flea opens at 10a.m. and ends at 4p.m. Ample parking is available at Joe’s six story structure located between 2nd and 3rd on Spring Street.Downtown Flea in the Historic Core 246 S Spring Street Los Angeles, CA 90015 (323) 391-3378 Visit www.dtflea.com for more information.
