2015 L.A. Lit and Toy Show-- Saturday, March 7th, LAX Hilton Hotel


These 16 events were all part of the Lit Meet Week in 2014. We will post new listings for 2015 starting in December 2014. Everything will be scheduled for the week ending in Saturday March 7 = the Lit Meet at the LAX Hilton – and Sunday March 8 = the Swap Meet in Anaheim.


1. SoCal All-Porsche Swap and Car Display, Sunday–March 2nd, 2014

The All-Porsche Swap & Car Display will again be held on the day after the Lit Meet on Sunday, March 2nd at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim. It’s located at 1340 South Sanderson, Anaheim, CA 92806. This will be our fifth year here and the site is working well. See http://www.thephoenixclub.com for details on this German American Club.

Event sponsor, the 356 Club of Southern California will have indoor vendor displays in the FestHalle with 11,500 feet under one roof! Outdoors, we have about 2 acres of room for more vendors, swappers and large grass soccer field for car corrals. We’ll have plenty of parking available to Porsche people within 50 meters of the main entrance.

This event will take us back to a simpler time in a very unique setting; to a time when the Internet was not your primary source for used Porsche parts; a time when the local Southern California Porsche owner's gathered each winter to swap, fender fondle, see old friends and appreciate the breed. There will be vendors dedicated to our Porsche hobby and plenty of swap space will be available. If you have a car for sale, bring it and put a sign and information sheet in the window and sell it.

Each car coming in for Porsche display parking will make a donation of $20, so pile as many of your friends in the car as you can! The gates open to the Porsche parking on the grounds of the Phoenix Club at 8 AM. Seeing all the Porsche's parked there will be incredible! The walk-in gate will be open at 8:00 AM and admission will be $10. Breakfast and lunch with a German flavor will be available from open to close. Be sure you stop by the Bierstube to finish off the day. For those wanting to stay in the area of the Phoenix Club on Saturday night, we suggest the AYRES HOTEL ANAHEIM, 2550 E. Katella Avenue, Anaheim, CA 92806 (714) 634-2106.

Swappers will make a $60 donation per space taken on a first come first served basis at the gate on the morning of the event. Indoor clean vendor space also be available for $60 donation per space taken, but must be reserved by February 14th, 2014.  For Vendor display information and reservations, contact Bob Lee at Robert.b.lee@cox.net  or 619-518-8645. Swapper and vendors will be able to come in and begin set up at 6 AM. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (http://www.cff.org/).

So, we'll look forward to seeing you and your Porsche Sunday, March 2nd, 2014. Bring whatever money you have leftover from the Literature Meet, your Porsche, Porsche friends and join us for a celebration of Porsche! Breakfast and lunch will be available, so plan to spend the day soaking in the glory that is Porsche.
