There is a small flea market near my home, there are some old furnitures, old electric equipments such as television, frige, washing machine, air condition and so on, in addition, some amazing antiques you can find too. I often go to there to buy something when I am free or need something. It is cheap, and if you are a good bargainer, maybe a lower price you can get. Travl there is a interesting and amazing. Do you ever go to flea market and buy something? Do you think about it.

We actually have a really large indoor flea market in town (about 10 minutes from my house) and we go there about once every 3-4 months. It's a great place because it's so large and the vendors have all sorts of interesting things to sell, so we go there to get gifts for everyone. I mean, we got a shirt for my mother, an engraved stone for the garden for my grandmother, civil war buttons for my father-in-law, a grim reaper candle holder for my brother-in-law, apple chimes for my step-mother, etc. It's just a really neat place to go and find some really good deals and it's an easy place for gift shopping since there's just about guaranteed to be SOMETHING that everyone will like there, even if it takes a little searching to find. :)

Yes, I do go to flea markets once in a while, not too often. Flea markets have all sorts of things , very useful items for the home. That's what attracts me most, household utility items.

I barely EVER go to flea markets, unfortunately for me! We don't really have them in my area. I'm not really into buying antiques, but I love looking at different and unusual things. But I seriously don't know of ONE flea market in my city - and mind you, I live in a city of about 400,000 people. Hmpph. . Next time I'm out of town, though, I'll probably go to one!

400,000 is a small town, the city which I live have more than 10 million people. Too many people,too big city is not a good thing.

i like to the flea market, there is one of the flea market close my home,it is very large, and more and more type of clothing and bags or other small articles can be found,if you lucky, you will found the unique cloths in here, some perople make the clother by themself,so all the cloths are different,you can't find another one in the world,they also sell one by one,although it is not very fashion one or the work isn't very good, but you can find the most suitable one for youself.

I prefer yard sales to flea markets. Flea Markets are run by people who are still out looking for the big buck. Yard sales are held by people who are trying to get rid of their stuff, therefore you can find things alot cheaper, they practically give it away.

I started out as a locksmith in one of the flea markets close to home,and now I have many items that people just bring in for me to sell,I also deal in militaria. If there is anything you are interested in or collect,a flea market is the best place to find it at a reasonable price.

We go maybe down to the flea market maybe once a year as it's an hour away and they charge admission as well. Most of the folks there are not selling antiques, most of them sell things like produce, pets, clothing, socks, Hispanic items, electronics ect.... not all of it is a deal it depends on who's there, what you are looking for and what you are willing to spend.

I love flea markets and any kind of street market there is. I was always amazed at what people would buy from me when I sold at the market. I even sold an used toilet at one! I think flea markets are a lot of fun.

I used to love to go to this flea market, since they sell this nice and sometimes vintage clothes and bags. But now, I don't go there anymore. The market is now famous, and more people visit the market. I just can't stand it with people milled around me, hhh...it becomes hotter and so crowded.
