LOS ANGELES, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Artists & Fleas, Williamsburg, Brooklyn's pioneering weekend market for independent artists, designers and vintage collectors, recently announced plans to open in the LA Arts District this May 17 & 18. Artists & Fleas LA will showcase a wide range of local talent in fashion, design, art, vintage, music and food.
"Over the past 10 years, we've found that there's a strong bi-coastal energy and many of our long-time Brooklyn-based vendors routinely head out to LA to participate in shows and establish relationships with local retailers," said Ronen Glimer, co-founder of Artists & Fleas. "The timing seemed right for us to create a market in the Arts District that could be a hub for all the dynamic talent in LA that we've come to meet over the years and for the broader community of people who love shopping the markets and discovering new talent."
Artists & Fleas LA will be opening on May 17 & 18 in the Arts District at 647 Mateo Street, where it will host over 50 vendors and be open from 11-6.
