Black Market Flea tomorrow + Black-owned gift guide 🎁
COME SEE US TOMORROW AT
BLACK MARKET FLEA
Saturday, December 17 | 11am–7pm
The Beehive | 1000 E 60th St, Los Angeles, CA 90001
We’re returning to our favorite vendor market this Saturday, Black Market Flea! A limited number of presale tickets are available, but you can always just walk up and buy tickets at the door as well. We’ll let this quote from LAist do the talking:
“Depending on what time you arrive at the Flea any given month, you might see folks getting hyphy in the middle of a circle. DJs are spinning hip-hop and 90s R&B, and delicious smells are wafting past the vendor stalls. Whether your senses are turned on by oxtails… or macaroni & cheese and greens in a gyro… or a vegan burger, you are going to get hungry. There’s also a roller skating rink.”
BLACK-OWNED GIFT GUIDE
We wanted to spread the love and share some of our favorite Black-owned small businesses to consider for your holiday shopping this year.
We introduced Alain last year as part of our ISM Family series. Inspired by every day life, Alain’s paintings tell vibrantstories of his home, Rwanda, and his life now in San Antonio, with an expressionist style that we love. Check out his shop for originals, prints, commissions, stickers, pillows, and limited-edition crewnecks + tote bags!
For some spirited holiday cheer try 18.21 Bitters. This Atlanta-based beverage brand offers handcrafted premium cocktail bitters, tinctures, shrubs, syrups, old fashioned tonic, ginger beer, and craft cocktail mix. The perfect stocking stuffer to elevate your sip.
Shannon Scates of Unparalleled Art paints and draws with rich colors and thought-provoking statements. Visit her shop for originals and prints that are sure to uplift your spirit. She’ll also be at the Flea this weekend!
If you rock a Starstrukt piece, you know it’s going to be unique. This Ohio-based streetwear brand offers custom apparel, embroidery, and screen printing. Sweats, tees, socks, hoodies, hats, and more—everything you need to stay cozy and cool.
Dat Smell Good
Another Black Market Flea regular, Dat Smell Good offers a diverse variety of candles and soaps with cheekily-named scents like “Spoil Me” and “Main Squeeze.” The brand name explains it best—DAT SMELL GOOD.
Thank you for your support, and for considering us and other Black-owned small businesses in your holiday shopping. We’re grateful for you.
