If you haven't noticed, us R29 Angelenos have a major crush on A Current Affair. (Heck, we've gone as far as photographing the ultra-stylish attendees at its past events.) So, when we caught wind that the pop-up marketplace was back — and bigger than ever — our pretty pulses may have stopped for a split-second.
Not for the faint of heart, the largest showcase in the company's history will take place this Saturday, with over 40 vendors in the mix. ACA veterans like NYC's Vintage with a Twist and S.F.'s Handsome Oxford will be there, as will the fine folks behind the e-tailer Spanish Moss, on deck to unveil its new vintage-inspired American Gold collection. Of course, a proper peruse involves the right shopping tunes, so KCRW's Marion Hodges will be on the ones and twos for your listening pleasure. As for beverages (thrifting does have a tendency to make one's throat parched) Key Club will set up an open bar — that alone pays for the $10 ticket price! Basically, we insist you come thirsty and photo ready: Histyley will be running around, SLR in hand, to capture the chicest guests. We're looking at you, kid.
Oh, and did we mention that the pop up has secured its first food vendor? Ceviche Project will be serving up some delicious grub, so, yes, we're obviously splurging on that early $20 entry fee.
When: Saturday, March 23, 3 to 8 p.m.
Where: The Cooper Building, 860 South Los Angeles Street (at East 9th Street), Penthouse; no phone.
Tickets: $10 regular admission, $20 for early entry. Purchase here.
