The flea market has really went down the toilet in the last couple of years., it's not as clean. Most of the vendors have left and most of what is left are a bit grouchy. The building and grounds seem... read more »
It used to be so much bigger, but lately it's dwindling down to nothing. There are many interesting items in the market. There are a few outside vendors and 2 really cool antique shops.
a lot of indoor vendors. I was mainly looking for old stuff and there were 2 or 3 out buildings loaded with that . Spent a few hours there.
Advertised as the largest under-roof flea market in Tennessee. It is a pretty good size, but I envisioned a bit more for the largest in Tennessee. The vendors seem to be quite stable without much coming and going. We liked the several mobile phone accessory shops and most especially The Kitchen Shop.
I use to come here all the time growing up since I live over in London. When I use to go it was PACKED with people. I would take $20-$40 from my money and buy all kinds of neat stuff and it was so much fun. I went back today and boy has it changed, almost every vendor was on their phone ignoring people and being very rude by snatching the money out of ones hand when purchasing and not saying a word. I would rather drive 30 minutes to an hour to seiverville to get better deals and be actually interested in what they're selling.
Something for everyone, including my two teenagers who hate shopping anywhere. My best find was the $6 tye dye and a cute $10 hippie purse. The $1 hairbow selection was cool too.
If you're a local you already know what this is like. If you aren't, stop in here. It is the south, they love a good fleamarket. This isn't the best in the world but it is one of the best still around this area. The antique stores right beside it are also full of cast iron!
It's supposed to have 800 booths. They do probably, but some were empty and I counted at least 3 of the Oriental Trade type booths. It is interesting.
