Wicked Summer Fun Guide

Sale: Different clothes, flea market, selective focus with very little depth of field for adequate copyspace, shopping, poverty

Ok I’ll admit that I’m NOT a big flea market guy. But around here, finding the TOP TEN Massachusetts flea markets is like a weekend of lobster rolls and clam chowder. New Englanders LOVE flea markets!!  It’s every flea market person’s dream to:

1- Find that valuable antique and appear on Pawn Stars

2-Snag that classic antique buggy or wagon wheel to put at the tip of their front yard.

3-That missing comic book

4-That long lost childhood bike

5-How about a one of a kind item that can’t be found anywhere but your house

We have to admit there’s a mystique to the flea market. Every item comes with a story from the past. Who owned it? What was the meaning behind it, on and on.

Weekly Flea Markets, or The BIG ONE’s

We discovered a list of weekly flea markets that happen each week around Massachusetts. Of course, there’s the Brimfield Flea Market which is nationally famous. People and vendors from all over the country to flock to nearby Brimfield Massachusetts to clog traffic and walk their donuts off to reap the benefits of time gone by.

Name Your Price

The expert flea market person brings out his/her best Jedi Knight powers to wear down the vendor and haggle on a price, like it’s the market place in ancient Egypt.  Add to that, at a flea market you can FIND ANYTHING and EVERYTHING if you visit often enough. I knew an older family member that visited every WEEK. Sunday mornings from 10a to 12noon this person could be found at a flea market.

History

I’ll let you use your imagination on how the FLEA market, got it’s name.

So put on your comfortable walking shoes, grab your waters and lets find a flea market near you! (Thanks to Travel Safe Abroad. )

    This is the BIG PAPI of flea markets. Each year HOTEL’s in SELL out as thousands migrate to Brimfield to see this spectacle of other peoples stuff. I have been there. It’s a full day event, and if you’re a fan, two. To me, this should be #1 for it’s massive size and volume of items. This one has been on ABC’s Good Morning America. 

    According to Travel Safe:

    Brimfield Antique Flea Markets is considered to be the oldest outdoor flea market in the USA.

    It runs three times a year in May, July, and September.

    Each year, this flea draws in over 50,000 visitors from all corners of the United States, in search of antiques and valuables. 

    The sheer size of this flea is absolutely mind-blowing.

    It is a bargain hunters’ dream.

    You will find many rare and wonderful antiques and collectible items at this flea.

    Be prepared to spend your weekend at this market.  You DO have to pay for parking.
