Parking is very tight, with traffic jams and people waiting for spaces.
The event itself is underwhelming! It's a market, but with a flea market feel to it. I expected more choice and nicer items. It also seem that the items overall were very...continued

There were a lot more vendors than I expected. Items ranged from large pieces of furniture to clothing to jewelry to housewares. I would recommend going early because even though the event was scheduled through 3pm vendors began packing up...continued

Although it's small, there's a good variety of stuff. Something for everyone. A bit pricey. A trinket box that was only worth $5 in my opinion turned out to be $95! Yikes.

Much larger than expected. Vendors are friendly but a bit over priced on most items. Enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Hot weather made it less than it could have been.

Great event!!! love all the vendors. They were very friendly and inviting. I loved the set up. Vendors were more expensive than anticipating but I still had a great time. I got tons of ideas for my own projects.

It is really a fairly small swap meet. We got through the whole thing in about an hour. I was expecting much larger. The items were nice, but the Long Beach or Pasadena Antique Markets are a better alternative.

Quality not quantity. This one was smaller than others I've been to, but what they had was right on. Cheerful environment, the vendors were particularly nice and I never felt pressured to buy. I was into the vintage clothes, decor and furniture,...continued

The people were courteous and gracious even when the weather turned to rain. I heard several say that it was raining when they were setting up...But I got a couple of good items I really wanted and will go again!

This was a nice large event, but not too large. Park at the college for free, short walk to market. I thought that things were a bit overpriced and vendors in general not as friendly as the Topanga Vintage Market, where I have been twice. Not...continued

My husband and I arrived at 9am and were surprised at how crowded the parking was. I expected a ticket booth with my name on a list, but instead there was a woman behind a table with a cash box. She asked me for the confirmation # and I did not...continued

Still a great shopping experience. Nice mix of all types of vendors. Free parking is across the street. Wear your walking shoes and expect to spend a few hours. We get there early and make a couple of rounds (to make sure we see the vendors who...continued

The Antique Market was awesome! I had a great time looking at some great pieces. And came home with a new bracelet, a mirror and small framing items!

This antique market is a great place to find home collectibles and unique jewelleries. If you are looking for cloths this one doesn't have a lot of options.

One thing I need to warn is the address listed on goldstar is close but wrong. It is on...continued
