Pasadena, CA


Pasadena City College Flea Market – Record Swap
The first Sunday each month from 8am to 3pm. The Record Swap area is located on the 3rd level of the Lot 5 parking structure. They have about 50 vendors selling the usual stuff, many vendors are the same people who sell at the Orange County swap but there are many who are different. LP’s dominate but there is a little or a lot of everything including CD’s, DVD’s even a couple of vendors selling bootleg CD’s and DVD. I have been coming to this swap for more than 20 years and it’s still good. Admission is free but you do have to pay a couple bucks to park your car. Pay for parking at the automated machines, then follow the signs or the people to the flea market. This event is contained within the Flea Market which primarily sells antiques and collectibles. Some of the antique flea market is in the parking structure out of the sun the rest of it, about two parking lots worth are outdoors It’s always fun to walk around and check out the rest of the flea market after record shopping. Highly recommended.  1570 E. Colorado Blvd.

Poo Bah Record Shop - This shop was much better back when it was on Walnut Street, They haven't had much in the way of good used vinyl since they moved to this location many years ago. But if you are in town, or at the PCC Flea Market, may as well stop in and see for yourself. 2636 E. Colorado Blvd.

 

Penny Lane Records - This shop has closed down. It is now located in Upland, CA at 1551 W. 13th St. #107. Starting June 23, 2012 they are having a record swap every Saturday. We shall see. They are also only open on Saturdays now 10-5.
