Artists & Fleas continues to curate a unique, selected showcase of local creative talent in fashion, design, art, vintage, music and food.
«The response to the two new markets over the past 12 months from shoppers, small business entrepreneurs and the broader creative community that we help incubate has been overwhelming and encouraging,» said Ronen Glimer, co-founder of Artists & Fleas. «Both LA’s Arts District and the area around Chelsea Market are surging in popularity and teeming with culture and people on both coasts are finding that the combination of both variety and artistic quality coupled with the market vibe and experience that we’re about makes for a thrilling alternative to traditional retail.»
