Starlite Swap Meet

The following images document the Starlite Swap Meet, which solely operates on the weekends in what would otherwise be a vacant lot in the industrial suburb of South El Monte, CA, USA, located just east of Downtown Los Angeles. Special focus has been placed on the vendor stand located at Row 20, Space 22. Despite only being occupied two days out of the week, the swap meet has continually attracted many to its temporary “streets” over its five-plus decades of operation.
