Good Morning Vendors and Patrons,

I wish I had good news.  As you know, California spiked in COVID cases recently, and although we had planned to open soon, we are again at a standstill.

The LAHC Swap Meet is closed.  We are not closed permanently.  We are still here.  We are not going anywhere.  I know most swap meets in our area have been open for months, but being on a college campus is a completely different ordeal.  We await word from our California Governor, and the downtown Community College District.

Please know I continue the fight to open our swap meet immediately with COVID rules and regulations in place to make sure your experience here is safe.

If you continue to call the swap meet phone line and check this website, you will be the first to know.  I have also compiled a list of emails from inquiries on opening dates.  I will make sure to mass email all of you who have kept in contact with me.

Things to know:

1. Your credits are safe in our database.

2. When we reopen, the phone line recording, website, and electronic freeway sign will be changed immediately.

3. If you’re late getting the word on the opening date, don’t worry… we’ll be understanding.

Until we meet again… please wear the mask and stay healthy.

Thanks for your continued support of the Los Angeles Harbor College Swap Meet!

Darin Costa

LAHC Swap Meet Manager

Esta decisión se tomó con la consulta reflexiva de muchos líderes del distrito, y por precaución para proteger la salud y la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, profesores y personal y para ayudar a mitigar la propagación de COVID-19. LACCD está unido con nuestros colegas de educación superior a nivel local y en todo el país en que la seguridad es nuestra principal prioridad como parte de nuestra misión de proporcionar excelentes oportunidades educativas para nuestros estudiantes. La prudencia necesita prevalecer aquí.
