Luckily we read the Goldstar info enough to see it started at 9 am--so we got there at 8:30 and both got good parking. That is the good part!! Two huge rooms crammed with musty old clothes that were way overpriced made it so that we worked our way...continued

Much of the articles were overpriced and many items could be found in and around other stores in L.A.

Having said that, there were two vendors that I found to be excellent. One carried authentic Afghani clothes, textiles, and jewelry. The...continued

The good part was the amazing selection, it was a sensory delight. The parking was horrible, and I ended up getting a parking ticket (not the show's fault, but...) Like everybody else was saying, the prices were gaspingly high, and some of the...continued

There was a decent selection of stuff, but most vendors were SOOO overpriced. In an age of so many venues online, I didn't feel like paying $75 for an altered non-brand, non-vintage tunic. Oh, and it was way too crowded.

Wonderful! Mint condition vintage clothing, linens, etc.! There were two halls, but, unfortunately, there was no conspicuously posted sign at each hall entrance indicating, for example, "see opposite entrance for more vendors." It was not until...continued

Larger than I expected, with many good finds. Prices vary. No bargain steals, but fun and many items are reasonable even while some are overpriced, not really vintage or of questionable quality. Choose wisely. It gets crowded...go early! Great way...continued

I wasn't sure what to expect, but the Event was a nice mixture of moderately priced items to more costly vintage apparel and jewelry - something for anyone. I picked up two items for $40, a nice clutch that was unused and a bracelet. I was...continued

When an event is advertised as a TEXTILE show right in the title, you expect to see textiles. It was almost entirely clothes, shoes and handbags, mostly completely overpriced. Might as well just go to an overpriced store in Hollywood.
As for...continued

I found it to be very over priced as well. It would have been nice if they also directed everyone into each room. There was one side WAY crowded and then the other was barren. The glasses guy was the best made great deals and had a fabulous...continued

Too small and little to no men's vintage clothing. Everything was way over priced as other's have mentioned. I did like the free parking and the gardens were nice.

Apparently the Santa Monica Show this weekend is supposed to be bigger and...continued

It was nicer than I expected, some of the vendors actually had vintage items for sale. A lot of them had a mixture of old & newer things on offer. The venue was pleasant and easy to find and park. I'd go again!

My daughter and I attended the event and liked it very much. A couple of problems we ran into that prevented us from buying more than we did:
. Some vendors didn't have prices on items and it felt like they "made up" the prices after sizing us...continued

It was just ok. The ticket prices, and the fact that parking was free was good signs, but prices were just too high. It was my first time going, so maybe I'm not used to the antique shows and these are normal prices. I've been to the Rose Bowl...continued

The show was well laid out at the venue. There was a good deal of diversity in the type of articles for sale. Vendors were courteous and friendly. An area for Change Rooms would have been nice (most people were crammed in the restroom trying on...continued

First thing parking is atrocious at Pickwick Gardens. I spent a better portion of an hour trying to find a parking space, so needless to say by the time I actually got to the event I was coming from a place of irritation. One of the rooms was...continued

This is a small venue and can be completed in less than 4 hours, depending on your interests. The location could have been larger, as the crowds made it difficult to view items in a leisurely manner. Most of the clothing was priced very high,...continued

I've been meaning to see this event for years and I finally made it. The Pickwick Gardens is a very nice space and also very easy to get to in Burbank. The tickets are dirt cheap if you go a bit later and be sure to bring cash as some of the...continued

I had fun and bought two dresses! The prices vary a great deal...some at $300+ and others at under $50. It was particularly worth it since it was free to get it. I suggest going early so we can grab parking.
