ODDITIES FLEA MARKET–a one-of-a-kind experience for those of all-ages and all walks of life to peruse an endless sea of strange and unusual objects–has officially rescheduled their 2020 Los Angeles event to take place on Saturday, March 13 and Sunday, March 14, 2021 at The Globe Theatre following its previous postponement to July due to COVID-19 live event restrictions. Over the past few months, ODDITIES FLEA MARKET has held virtual live auctions via Instagram (@odditiesfleamarket) every Saturday at 3:00 P.M. ET and will continue to do so throughout the year. Additionally, co-producer/osteologist/star of Discovery‘s Oddities, RYAN MATTHEW COHN has hosted a series of virtual cat skeletal articulation classes where attendees are shipped the materials and then invited to join Ryan on a private skype instructional class.

“As the COVID-19 situation continues to change and evolve, we have decided it is in the best interest of our vendors, staff and attendees to reschedule this summer’s event in Los Angeles for March 13 and 14, 2021,” states COHN. “This was not an easy call to make, but without conclusive health information and firm phasing guidelines for live events, it was the safest option. We don’t want to continue postponing from month to month as new information becomes available, and we absolutely don’t want to rush in at the earliest sign of reopening and put anyone in our community at risk. We are so thankful for your cooperation and support as we navigate the current climate.”
All purchased tickets will automatically be transferred to the corresponding rescheduled date(/s). For those unable to attend the new dates, ticket refunds will be available via Eventbrite until July 1, 2020, after which all sales will be final.
Curated by Ryan Matthew Cohn and his wife/executive producer Regina Marie Cohn,the ODDITIES FLEA MARKET was developed in 2017 to fill the void of ‘odd culture’ in Brooklyn and has since traveled across the U.S. including successful markets in Los Angeles, CA and Chicago, IL. The unique event allows attendees to find items catered to the macabre from the COHN‘s personal collection as well as several independent vendors and boutiques with items ranging from medical history ephemera, anatomical curiosities, natural history items, osteological specimens and taxidermy to home décor, jewelry, one-of-a-kind art, bizarre flair and more. The market has been featured in national press from outlets including ABC‘s Localish, Time Out NY, VICE, NY TIMES, LA Weekly, Revolver Magazine, Collector’s Weekly, INKED and BlackBook.
