The swapmeet at the Rose Bowl the second Sunday of every month is one of most popular places for bargain hunters and antiquers alike. The swapmeet is set up in three rings. The outer ring has all the old and most of the time uncollectible items. This is where the bargain hunters go. The second ring consists of a large amount of modern furniture, collectibles, and stuff. The inner ring located inside the gates of the Rose Bowl consists of new items, business such as spa installations, etc.
If you want to check out the entire swapmeet, give yourself at least 3 hours. You also need to go early to get the best selection. Admission fee is $7 and they open at 9am to the public-- they do open earlier to the public but it will cost you more $$.
