50 Flea Markets Across America That Bargain Hunters Won't Want to Miss
A flea market, sometimes referred to as a swap meet, is the perfect place to acquire awesome stuff on the cheap. Vendors sign up to man booths or tables, indoors or out, and display a dizzying array of antiques, collectibles, outdoor gear, books, children's items, and everything in between -- including junk. Admission is typically free or minimal, although some venues charge serious treasure hunters a premium for early-bird dibs on the goods. Here are 50 of the best flea markets across the country.
Many collectors and dealers consider the monthly (except during January, February, and July) Springfield Antique Show & Flea Market a must-visit. Amateur treasure hunters are also welcome to search for that unique something.
People have been enjoying the Oronoco Gold Rush Antique & Market Show for decades. Nearly 300 vendors set up shop every year on the third weekend of August, a beacon for bargain hunters looking for that special something.
