I’d like you to meet my friends Lori and Patrice, founders of The Topanga Vintage Market…
The Topanga Vintage Market is a brand new, monthly outdoor flea market debuting its very first show on April 22nd, Earth Day. And according to Lori, it’s almost already sold out!
We are over the moon excited to be a vendor at this very first show!
It’s going to be held the 4th Sunday of every month. And it’s located in the parking lot of the Westfield Promenade, in Woodland Hills. Off the 101 freeway, at Topanga Canyon Blvd. and Oxnard St.
Funny little story…
I had a dentist appointment in the valley, with a specialist I’d never seen before. The appointment was much quicker than I anticipated, and I had a little time to kill before I had to get back home. So as I was driving down Topanga Canyon Blvd, I decided to pull off into the Westfield parking lot to check out my space before a couple weeks before the show, just to get the lay of the land. Lori and Patrice assured me my space would have lots and lots of shade, thanks to the tall pine trees that line the sidewalk.
As I was pulling into the parking lot where the market is to be held, I saw two ladies waving in my direction, but I didn’t recognize them because I was too far away, and didn’t have my glasses on.
So I kept on driving closer and closer toward them until I heard one of them say to the other “Is that Jennifer??”
Sure enough, it was Lori and Patrice, practically standing in front of my space! They were surveying the parking lot and planning out the final details for the upcoming flea market.
They pointed out where my space is going be for the show, and it’s two parking spaces wide. Perfect for all the unique finds I’ve been storing up for the event. And by the way, that’s Oxnard Street just beyond the trees, where all those cars are lined up at the intersection. They couldn’t have picked a better location for a flea market!
All the excitement made us hungry, so the ladies offered to take me lunch at PF Changs, just across the parking lot. And I found out it was Patrice’s birthday that day!
kis·met: (n) fate; destiny.
Sometimes in life two separately driven paths collide and intersect into one. And when this occurs it brings a big, happy smile to ones face : )
