Hello!
I have a question for all Wisconsin crafters...

Two or three years ago, my mother and I went to the most amazing flea market I have ever been to, and have since then been unable to relocate it. She tells me that all she can remember is that is was in Oshkosh, and it was early fall. I seem to remember it being at a fairgrounds.
The whole thing was set up in barns, and each barn was assigned to a specific item: one barn of sofas/armchairs, one barn of kitchenware, etc. There were also bicycles (hundreds!) and typewriters (even more!), pretty much anything you could thing of was there in unbelievable quantities, and in excellent condition for what I can remember.
There were refreshments served from a refreshment stand attached to a sports setup, probably baseball or football but I didn't really look at it.

I'm determined to prove that this is not the Brigadoon of flea markets, any information is appreciated!

Did you try googling it?  I googled "oshkosh flea market" and came up with some hits.

I've been googling it for about a year, and nothing I've found matches what I think it was... I can't find anything that's as big as I remember this being.
