Review: The 2023 ‘Spooky Swap Meet’! (Los Angeles)

It’s halfway to Halloween and you know what that means………it’s Spooky Swap Meet time again in LA!! Or, I should say – it WAS Spooky Swap Meet time in LA and if you missed it then that is a damn shame. But anyway – yes, the annual super spooktacular tradition set up shop again at the Heritage Square Museum in Los Angeles. And I’ve said it before – this place provides the PERFECT backdrop for this event. I mean, who doesn’t love a hauntingly good old Victorian house??

Not only were there over 60 vendors selling everything from creepy-faced pies to ghoulishly groovy candles – there was even a mini-walkthrough haunted house courtesy of Fear Farm! In addition to that, scare actors were roaming the grounds…..there were picture opportunies galore (you could even wear some traditional ghost sheets for a photo-op in front of one of the houses)…..and did I mention the creepy-faced pies??

All in all, another successful Spooky Swap Meet, and kudos to everyone who helped put it together. The addition of the mini haunted house was a plus this year, so I would love to see maybe one more added next year. And some more pies. Because I love pies if you couldn’t already tell. So… I’m giving you fair warning in advance. Like, 363 days in advance. DO NOT miss it next year and get your tickets early, because they will sell out! And I’ll scare you there!!
