Flea Markets in the US: 6 must do flea markets from East Coast to West Coast (2014 Update)


If you’re planning a trip soon to the US (or if you’re already living there and that driving East to West Coast is no big deal for you…), and if you enjoy touring flea markets to find buried treasures, then you should probably take a moment to read this interesting review by Phoebe Assenza for Shelter Pop to get the most of your next adventure  at the flea market.

Those of us with a soft spot for nostalgia or a pirate’s-level enthusiasm for buried antique treasures and antiques roadshows, know there are few greater joys than whiling away a Sunday at an overstuffed flea market. If it weren’t for these indoor and outdoor bazaars brimming with vintage finds, we would have a lot less to brag about – our most recent gems include a collection of 50s-era vintage table lighters found at the Long Beach Antique and Collectibles Flea Market , and a  vintage faux-Victorian nightstand made in the 70s, scored at New York City’s Chelsea Flea Market.

From the coast of California to the borough of Brooklyn, these are the best flea markets to find your new favorite antiques and vintage things.
