Los Angeles, get ready for an exciting addition to your city! Launching this Thursday afternoon at the trendy Platform shopping center in Culver City, the Mojave Flea Trading Post promises an extraordinary experience showcasing the best of California’s local artisans and merchants. This captivating pop-up market is set to captivate visitors until the year’s end.
This innovative concept originated in sunny Palm Springs in 2021 and has quickly expanded to various locations, including Yucca Valley and San Francisco’s iconic Ferry Building. James Morelos, the visionary founder, drew inspiration from his mother’s passion for second-hand stores. His journey started as a barber and evolved into running a design store in Brooklyn before introducing his first nomadic pop-up market on the East Coast of the United States.
The resounding success of these endeavors drove Morelos to open his first physical store, a haven dedicated to celebrating creative craftsmanship. Here, visitors can explore a diverse array of decorative objects, exquisite jewelry, unique stationery, trendy clothing, and fashion-forward accessories.
In addition to the Mojave Flea Trading Post stores, Morelos recently launched another exciting concept in early 2023, ‘Market Market,’ in Palm Springs. This venture focuses on vintage and upcycled furniture and fashion, having previously been successfully tested at Row DTLA.
But that’s not all. Platform, the home of the Mojave Flea Trading Post pop-up, has been a hub for exciting new brands in recent months. This lineup includes acclaimed designer Johnny Schwartz and his label Yony, the renowned Brooklyn-based jewelry brand Catbird, Club Vintage, which made its debut after gaining popularity on Instagram, and the captivating Turkish fashion boutique Faraway.
Prepare to embark on a unique shopping journey and immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of creativity that the Mojave Flea Trading Post brings to Los Angeles. With a diverse range of talented artisans and innovative brands, this is an experience you won’t want to miss.
Explore the Mojave Flea Trading Post at Platform in Culver City from this Thursday onwards and discover the best of California’s local artistry.
