Been to LA 4 times and never miss this. It starts early Sat morning (5-6 am ?) and goes to10:30-11 am. The streets are lined with racks and tables mostly with clothes. Spanish and Korean are the official languages but everyone knows how to answer "how much?" If you don't like crowds, don't go. This is not for everyone. If you like paying $10 for 3 t-shirts, the same ones you will pay $12 each on Hollywood Blvd, then this is the place for you. Blouses-shirts for $5-8, jeans, belts, .shoes, ect. My wife and teenage daughters manage to fill a suitcase full of clothes at about 1/5 of what of what it would cost in Canada. Definitly not for the faint of heart, but a bargain shoppers paradise.

Unbelievable bargains to be found. Take cash, as they will charge you extra tax and card fees if you pay with credit card etc. Plenty to see and do, but alot of the shops start repeating themselves. For example...shoes, bags, clothes, perfume, shoes, bags, clothes, perfume...you get my drift. Not that I am complaining, it was bargain shopping, go there with plenty of time and lots of cash.

I felt like I was somewhere in Mexico City...and I lost my car because all the streets look the same and my wetware satnav let me down badly.

It's fun to look around and see the foods and people, but the clothes are ...how should I say it....I think Heidi Klum and Michael Kors would have to be carried away on gurneys.

Make sure you take someone with you and park in a populated area. Not the best area, but great bargains! Plan ahead, take cash to maximize your purchases. Map out where you want to go and what stores and areas you wish to visit. I would definitely go back to get bargains there!

Well, maybe this just wasn't what I like, but there was a lot of bling and junk. Don't recommend you waste your time.
