Missed the Rose Bowl Flea Market last Sunday due to some unforeseen circumstances...*sigh*. We were really bummed to have missed it, but it forced me to investigate some upcoming other similar such flea markets, so that was a good thing.
RG Canning, the event company that hosts the Rose Bowl Flea Market, also does a monthly Flea Market in Ventura. The schedule is not quite as exact, but there is an event this month on March 30th from 9am - 2pm. It's only $5 admission for those that arrive at 9am or later. If you go as a early bird, admission is $10. No pets allowed, so they say. It's located at 2706 Harbor Bl. in Ventura, off the 101 Freeway. I am sure it's beautiful out there!

This event is held one Sunday per month & dates seem to vary. There are no scheduled dates in July or August or December of this year.
Another big event is this Sunday, March 16th in Long Beach. It's the Long Beach Outdoor Antique & Collectibles Market & it looks & sounds huge from what I read online!! Again, only $5 admission between the hours of 6:30am - 3pm. This one is held at Veteran's Stadium near Lakewood Bl. in Long Beach. Just might have to make up for last Sunday's loss by checking this one out this Sunday! If we do, I will report back with my findings.

The downside is rain is predicted for this Sunday........but we shall see! This swap meet is held the 3rd Sunday of each month. They boast 800+ vendors on 20 acres containing antiques & collectibles at "bargain prices"! The event is held rain or shine.
