  • I really wanted to go to this flea market because of it's affiliation with the TV show "Flea Market Flip". I really enjoyed it. Two dollars each to get in. Lots of assorted items of every possible thi...  more »
  • Sometimes fame can even ruin a flea market. If you're looking for a bargain, find another flea market. "Flea Market Flip" has come and gone, leaving behind high prices and limited bartering. Not the p...  more »

  • Come early to get the most out of your flea market visit. Bring an umbrella to ensure you don't get sun exposure. There are lots to see and bargain and buy. Food trucks are found near the entrance and you can seat down to eat. There are portable rest rooms found towards the back of the area which is so huge. Antique toys, clothes, furniture, silverware, shoes, hats, unique and funky accessories, jewelry, rugs, curtains, pots, pans and house accessories - all over the 500+ sellers spread over a 52+ acre field. Bring your A game and list - and cash.
  • I came here as a vendor. Trying to get into the place was a madhouse. There was a guy that was supposed to be directing traffic, but he was off on a side street telling cars to turn right onto the road while totally ignoring the people who were going straight. Almost got into several accidents because I could barely see what the guy was doing (which was telling every car to speed turn right). Then when I got to the gate, the guy collecting money was the RUDEST right after I gave him $100 for 2 vehicles he begins questioning me "What are you selling", "Is it counterfeit" he asks me. "Is it name brand", "You're not selling 5$ phone cases are you?" I had my CT Sales Tax and Use Permit in my hand, a Magic Chef microwave in the front seat and a 1.7 Haier refrigerator in the back seat, but I think he was only focused on the color of my skin.
  • I cannot believe some of the bad reviews on this site -- but the one about the tick takes the cake. There is no realistic way ET can control ticks or insects or any wild animal coming onto the field. I'm sorry you contracted Lyme (and yes, that is how you spell it) but you could have just as easily picked up a tick in your backyard, walking down the street or encountering your neighbor's dog. Your "review" is totally unwarranted - and if it weren't so laughable it would be libelous. At the very least you owe the Trunk an apology.
  • Love elephant trunk but hate the fact that alot of venders dont have prices on items. I feel that by not putting prices on items the vendors are sizing you up and giving you a price based on what they feel they can get out of you. The vendors that don't price, as far as I'm concerned no price I keep walking. Lost sale
  • We had a great time at the flea market. There are hundreds of vendors, as well as food trucks and bathroom facilities. You will definitely need more than one trip to get through everything, but you will not see the same thing twice.
