Star Lite Swap Meet: A Local Flea Market in Lakewood
Religious paintings and heavily gilded Jesus and Virgin Mary figurines are also given quite a bit of space, bringing a dose of spirituality to that which is being offered. Fresh cut flowers dot a few of the booths outside, inviting the browser to take in, and, perhaps, even buy up a bit of nature for oneself.
The bouquets appear to be a bit on the pricier side, but arrangements are what one would expect of any florist. Specialty Services Perhaps most surprising in the rows of merchants selling goods is the two purely service-oriented shops — a beauty salon and an underground tattoo parlor.
Miscellaneous Now we get to the really fun and funky. Yup, one outside vendor was featuring just that, which was a definite favorite of the younger swap meeters. Oh, and a heaping pile of naked Barbie dolls could apparently be yours, though what purpose they could serve is beyond me.
Come shop or take in the many sights, sounds and smells, open In warmer months, vendors spill onto the lawn, with outdoor space open to the general public from 8: Swapping, bartering and buying are all encouraged. Clothing Looking to add a little something extra to your wardrobe?
Short, short club dresses and sheer tops stand out on snow white mannequins, and are definite attention grabbers. Pair the latter with a heavily embellished pair of jeans if wanting to go all out. Tees screen printed with the Seahawk and CenturyLink stadium are also widely available, and largely emphasize neon green, making for one of a kind, homebrewed gear.
Cactus is one of the more unique items for sale. Electronics In the mix is a good number of electronics vendors, from colorful cell phone case hawkers to a wall-to-wall DVD shop. Outside, one tent houses nothing but speakers of all sizes, which boom out a medley of tunes to the passersby. Perhaps getting the most visits are those who entice with old school games and consoles.
The tattoo place here is amazing! Rebecca did my husbands cover-up and a redo.
Best service and price. We'll be going back for more. Very LA style swap meet. Asians and Latinos galore, with a light sprinkle of Others. Parking was free and pretty ample before 10am, which is awesome.
Crowds don't get too messy til after noon, which is awesome. After I went halfsies with the BF, I went from starving to still pretty damn hungry. And I don't eat that much. You have a large indoor swap meet area, you have a large outdoor swap meet area.
This is just one of those Tacoma places that everyone needs to experience at least once. A dollar will get you into a vast indoor and outdoor swap meet, with everything from wigs and dvd players, beach towels and dvds, to cowboy boots and lucha libre masks. Make sure to give yourself ample time to peruse the many stalls -- the Starlite also has food vendros if you're so-inclined.Swap meet lakewood wa 04/2015
And because half of the stalls are outdoors, I'd recommend going on a nice day! When I was a small child we lived in Korea for a short period. I can just barely remember going to the open air market and the remember the stands of all kinds of weird random items. Star-Lite Swap and Shop reminds me of that open air market.

It has an eclectic mix of. Some vendors are willing to barter with you. Some not so much, but it never seems to hurt to ask. The boyfriend and I went this last Sunday and wandered for a couple of hours and he was able to find a complete screw tap and die set whatever that is I went looking for garden tools and although I didn't find anything I couldn't live without, I saw a lot of things I really could spend money on that I didn't need I will definitely go back and wander some more, heck I might even try taking some of the clutter I have around the house and make a quick buck or two.

You know, "One person's trash is another person's treasure. I, personally, can dig through my own garbage can. This place reminds me of LA Fashion district but less fashion lol. It has a good amount of little shops selling anything from, clothes, purses, shoes, and whatever else you can think of.
Over all pretty good place to spend a few hours. I really wish this place was still a drive-in theater! I heard that Walmart is moving in. I imagine most people that Yelp enjoy a good old-fashioned swap meet every now and again.
I was lucky enough to spot this one day on my drive down Tacoma Way. It's located in the parking lot of Star-Lite theater. There are people wandering around from all walks of life, buying and selling anything that can be carried in the back of a truck, or oddly enough mostly in old beater Ford Econoline vans.
Mostly tools, electronics, and all garage sale items. If you ever have a couple minutes, don't be afraid to stop in and wander down the row to see what people are selling. My husband purchased our rings from here and we tried to take them back after my rings broke in half after entering the pool at the ymca in Lakewood.
