Over-priced for a bunch of junk!!! It used to be good, but now that it became popular it is way OVERPRICED!!!! If you want good deals on antiques go to the Orange Circle

Vintage and Antique galore! 10/12/2009

I think you have to have something in mind if you want to go here, or else you'll just be bombarded with millions of trinket and everything will start to look the same (like all flee markets). Get place to find antique furniture and memorabilia. more

Neat Antiques But WAY Overpriced! 7/24/2008

This is a great venue, has tons of antique and vintage items. However, it costs a fortune, 20.00 or 30.00 to get in early, and it is WAY overpriced. Antiques shops are cheaper! This venue has grown in popularity and the prices have soared along with it. Do not waste your time if you are looking for antiques to resell. Pros: Huge Variety Cons: Horrible HIGH prices, antiques shops are less! more

Go with a purpose 11/14/2007

There are so many vendors at this monthly event that I highly recommend you go with a purpose. Have a general idea of what you're looking for and zone in on those items. If you don't you'll be walking around for hours thinking to yourself...ooh, that looks cool...and aaahh, that would work. You could easily be inundated with too much input and walk away with nothing in your hands at the end of the day. Of course, if you just like to look...this is the ultimate window shopping experience. more

Excellent variety 2/13/2007

There was so much to see at this flea market in what seemed like so little time! There was an abundance of friendly vendors willing to negotiate prices and good finds throughout the whole lot. I got some great stuff for my new apartment even though I'd planned to restrict myself to "just browsing." more

GREAT! 8/13/2006

This flea market was fantastic! They had amazing stuff & all of the vendors were pretty willing to come down on prices! I got some great home decorating pieces and furniture...all for incredibly reasonable prices! It is huge though. I arrived around noon and stayed until closing & I don't think I saw more than 1/3 of it!! more

Great afternoon walk 3/23/2005

The Rose Bowl Flea market is short on bargins unless you get there a 00-Dark-thirty when it opens. Then you are competing with the antique dealers. It is a good place to find unusual items, people watch and of course stock up on pickles and beef jerky (a swap meet staple). The cover charge to get in is a bit steep, you need to pay for parking and most vendors prefer cash so come prepared. It gets hot in the summer so bring your sun block. more

Greedy Vendors 5/16/2002

Fun, kitschy finds -- for a price 5/13/2002

This place is great for kitschy fun furniture, but forget the clothes. Ive never found any good vintage clothing deals here. Also, be prepared for the high prices. The vendors bring a good selection, but they know their market. The prices are reasonable compared to the antique shops in South Pasadena and Melrose, but Ive seen the many same vendors in Palm Springs and Phoenix selling the same pieces for ? the price. more

Editorial

  • The Scene
    Shoppers arrive early in droves, wearing good walking shoes and sun hats, and pulling shopping carts. Don't make other daytime plans--you'll want to spend all Sunday perusing the endless sea of antiques and collectibles, vintage clothing and new merchandise from roughly 2,500 vendors.

    The Goods
    In the antique and collectibles area, you'll find row upon row of '60s- and '70s-era metal lunch boxes, vintage French movie posters, Mission furniture and even antique bathroom sinks. The area devoted to new merchandise--just within the entrance gate and winding around the actual stadium--carries such diverse items as office furniture, home spas, beauty products, ethnic clothing and animal feed. Keep in mind that most vendors are savvy about what they've got, so be sure to negotiate for good bargains. Example: A "Partridge Family" lunch box goes for $120.
