American Apparel Factory Flea Market Will Be Hipster Haven
The sale, which will last until the following Wednesday, October 26, will feature discounts of up to 90 percent off on thousands of pieces. It all goes down at the AA Factory, located at 747 Warehouse Street, Los Angeles, CA 90021. It starts at 9 a.m. and goes until 9 p.m. each day of the sale; that's 72 hours of merchandise mayhem.
Don't worry about getting to the lot at the crack of dawn. They'll be replenishing the inventory daily from the factory just a few paces away. Admission is free, and cash, credit, and debit are all welcome (as if American Apparel would ever discriminate against a charging method).
While there's little to no threat of the stock running out, shoppers who have hit up the sale in year's past say it's best to venture over in the first half of the day. Come noon it'll be a cardboard boxpocalypse. Whopper-sized discounts will be dished out for garments with a little wear and tear, though many of the racks will still be filled with stuff coming hot off the factory line. And with Halloween just around the corner, even the wackiest of American Apparel "essentials" are fair game.
While the company has yet to give us too many details to get excited about, previous sales have also included barbecue and Mexican munchies, photos by the Cobrasnake, sets by DJ Sebastien Tellier, obscure flicks from Cinefamily, and books from Family on Fairfax. Oh, and naturally, a slip 'n' slide.
Hot tip: at past bargain bonanzas, founder Dov Charney and his minions were seen scanning the crowd for "potential American Apparel employees." If you think you're up to the task, it might be smart to show up in your best lamé hot pants and vintage horn rimmed frames.
