What about finding a meaningful or unique gift for someone in your life? Or you may just be a fan of collectibles or shopping in general. If any of the above spoke to you, then the Long Beach Antique Market is the perfect stop when you visit Long Beach!

This large market has been a Long Beach staple since 1982 and is held at Veterans Stadium, next to the Long Beach City College LAC Campus. Did we mention it’s large?! This event, held every third Sunday of each month, stretches over 20 acres and features over 800 vendors. Long Beach Antique Market has won many awards including Top Ten Flea Markets in the US, Best Swap Meet, Best Flea Market, and Best Antique Market. With so many amazing vendors it’s not hard to see why!

Products range from collectibles, home décor and furniture, vintage clothing, jewelry, and antiques. If you walk up and down through the aisles you may notice similar items from other section, but we can assure you that each vendor has their own unique twist to their particular booth.

Since there are many rows of vendors for you to search through, a typical visit may take a few hours of shopping. You may finally understand the saying of “Shop til you drop” when you experience the Antique Market! Thankfully, there are food & drink options available for purchase, including beer, so you can stay energized and cool.

Some of my favorite finds at this market have been antique mirrors (I used one gorgeous, large mirror as the seating chart for my wedding!), vintage crates, a mermaid bottle opener, and a beautiful large geode which is now proudly being shown off in my living room. Honorable mention: an Austin Powers action toy…Yeah, baby, yeah! No matter what your style may be, it’s hard NOT to find something that catches your eye.
