  • We go at least a couple of times a year. There isn't as much furniture as some other fleas, but we always manage to find either what we were searching for, or something unexpectedly cool. It's not ver...  read more »
  • We stopped here based on a local's recommendation and it was awesome. I really loved all the choices from everything from furniture to small nicknacks at great prices. This place had a huge selection ...  read more »
  • You wouldn't believe how big this place is. If you really want to score a bargain, then you need to get there early and with a lot of time. Do remember where you parked, as the lot lacks numbers. If i...  read more »
  • 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
  • It's always rewarding to go to this flea market that consists of mostly antiques; Vintage items; Mid-Century Modernism; furniture; decorative items; lighting, art & architectural pieces. You won't find ANY vendors hawking cheap Chinese sunglasses, bootleg DVDs or faux Louis Vuitton...! I make it a point to bring unusual, individualized pieces representative of a fresh product line of handmade Primitive / Industrial sideboards, tables, shelves & racks; as well as a diversified assortment of esoteric Americana, including a colorful array of handblown utilitarian glass & apothecary bottles; as well as cogs, gears, meters, tools & gauges; advertising & ephemera. This is a GREAT place to buy & sell; I never leave without being able to find something worth buying...! So if you've seen me before, don't hesitate to come up & say "hi"...! [It's also worth mentioning that my personal favorite treat are the fresh cinnamon & sugar covered donuts; but all the food vendors are top-notch, at this flea market.] It's always an adventure, so join me on the 'hunt' & I'll see you there...!
  • Cool flea market. lots of interesting things. and some good food trucks too
  • Get there early! It's easier to get in through candlewood lake road. Otherwise, you are fighting all the traffic on 7
