  • Good deals on attire and footwear. I do not think fake jewelry is a good investment to make at the Santee Alley. The Santee Alley is a very cultural market, and a diverse experience; one that I would recommend checking out when near by. The bacon wrapped hot dogs smell delicious but, remember to wash your hands to avoid food-borne illnesses.
  • Best place in all of Los Angeles and beyond to shop for all your clothing needs. Here you can find everything in one stop shopping, latest clothing, shoes, hand bags, rugs, bedding, belts, buttons and zippers, perfumes, and more. Good quality at reasonable prices. Sure beats those outlet malls. After several hours of shopping there are plenty of places to rest and have a nice meal.
  • THIS PLACE IS AMAZING, I VE BEEN COMING HERE SINCE THE MID TO LATE 80’ (yeah it’s been there that long) YOU CAN FIND PRACTICALLY ANYTHING YOU NEED FROM CLOTHING TO PETS AND ELECTRONICS ... AND I DO MEAN EVERYTHING!!! BOOTLEG OR LEGITIMATE PRODUCTS/MERCHANDISE... THE PRICES ARE UNBEATABLE! YOU WILL NOT GET A BETTER DEAL ANYWHERE ELSE, WHETHER YOU’RE LOOKING TO PURCHASE BULK OR JUST A COUPLE THINGS. THERE ARE ITEMS HERE YOU WILL NOT FIND ANYWHERE ELSE.
  • This is literally one stop shopping at it's best. You can haggle down most sellers you'll always find just what you're looking for. Just be prepared for crowds, plenty of walking, and seeing as you are pretty much the middle of La some pretty funky smells. Parking is the one thing you should really be worried about you may get lucky and park on the street and feed the meter but for the most part A lot of the vendors especially the food ones take up most of the parking on the streets so you have to park in one of the parking structures which can be pretty expensive about 25 bucks or so.
  • Ive been coming here since i was a child, and I still love coming here to find cool inexpensive fashion. Sometimes you don't want to spend a lot on the latest trends because let's face it they're out as quickly as they are in. Haha. I definitely recommend coming early, and during the week if you can. Parking is easier, and more stores are open.
