The Swapmeet Movement, first feature Alpine Village

Swap meet clicka is a state of mind and a state of life. It was created from imagination back around 1997. Since then it has had hundreds and thousands of members. If you are Mexican or any other Hispanic origin swap meet clicka is in your blood and sweat everyday as we push our carritos down the main streets. We are about selling everything from corn to oranges, yantas, old toys, car parts and tools, colchones, aparatos usados,you name it we sell it.We got big loving families kids older then our selves therefore we drive big GMC vans of all colors of the rainbow we stick to the classic forget what year it is. Our original home plate is Harbor College in Wilmington but after years we learned to collaborate with all the swapmeeteros of our kind. I am starting a revolution to bring back the swap meet forget the malls and boutiques, its all here on one big parking lot. The first feature of of this collaboration is Alpine Village swap meet located in the city of Carson Ca, but as a side note please feel free to comment or contribute your swap meet stories or pictures to the page and I will definitely post it up...

Alpine Village is a pretty ok swap meet, they mostly carry mass amounts of tools and a lot of things are a little junky but if you dig around you maybe can find good parts if you are trying to do a fixer upper on something. They also do carry fresh fruit and Veggies.



The Swap meet is named after a run down German Village located on the grounds they do have good Sunday brunch and around Halloween a grand October Fest.

Did you see how they just tore down the batting cages and the beer garden at Alpine Village? Any idea what's going in there?

Really I did not notice the batting cages where down I used to get dragged there by my Dad when he would take my brothers to practice back in the days. I spend most of my time in the arcade trailor lol..
