Swap meets

It seems more and more that people find amazing deals at swap meets and flea markets. I was wondering if anyone knew of any swap meets or flea markets around the LA area.
Thanks

It's been years, but when I lived there the two big ones were Simi Valley Drive-In and one out at the Saugus Speedway.

FWIW, I've only found one bike at a swap meet that was a deal. I see a bunch, but they are all priced very. very high for some reason.

The Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena is the second Sunday of every month.
