It depends on the flea market. They are pretty cool. The one in my home town had a fresh fruit section. The you have the people that are just out there selling their crap they don’t want. Then you have the “antique” section with all the old glass items and sometimes jewelry.Usually there are people selling plants, and at least one person selling puppies. LOL

The one where I live now also has a guy that sells handmade and painted tiki bars for your backyard. Just keep your eyes open and browse slowly, you never know what you will find.

A tip: NEGOTIATE! It works. You can always go for the old fake out and walk away like you are going to put the item back. Works every time!

I always bring change and keep some of it in my pocket so I don’t have to break out the wallet.  There’s everything from trail mix, jerky, shoes, hair accessories, cheap toys, home decor, dollar store stuff, blankets, knock off purses, hair products, perfume, you name it and it could be there.  I always forget how hot it gets at ours since it is on blacktop and the sun reflects off of the blacktop and heats me up.  Bring a bottle of water if they let you.  Have fun!

Keep different sums of cash in different pockets so you can try to negotiate with the “I only have a $10”

I normally buy all my movies from there – illegal – yes – but 100% quality and saves me from going to the theatre (yes they have new releases) !  CruiseWedding summed it up – it is a bunch of vendors selling all of the things she mentioned and more
