She'll yell at you if you call it a flea market "IT'S AN ANTIQUE STORE" but... yeah... it's neat, in Ball Ground. Canton. Packrat's Daughter or something like that.

here in athens is the j and j flea market which is totally an awesome cultural experience, and you can usually boy cool stuff from the table vendors outside (inside is mostly old tires and made in china crap, but there's some interesting stuff too -- it's worth taking a look) but I doubt it would be a good place to sell crafts.
Big City Breads used to have a mini flea market out front, where people did sell crafts, but I don't know if that's still going.  there's also the OCAF sales in Watkinsville -- in December they have an arts and crafts sale and in spring they have a rummage sale -- they're not strictly flea markers but you can always find good stuff.

Hey guys!  I just wanted to update this post as I recently found out that Oct. will be the last Lakewood Flea.  They are shutting it down, which is tragic because it's awesome!  Do not be fooled into thinking that their counterpart, Lakewood 400 Flea, is as good.  It is owned by the same people but my fiance and I drove up to it last weekend and it was all suburb decorator stuff.  Not much junk at all.  So don't forget to go to the last ever Lakewood Flea the second weekend of Oct.!

Also, I have been to several N. Georgia Fleas as well.  Pendergrass was just as everyone has said....dollar junk, new tools, etc.  They have a few outdoor vendors that are still junky enough though.

Here is a link to the Lakewood Flea website with some info on the closing.  The map on this site is for Lakewood 400 Flea which is in Cumming, GA.  (According to several dealers I overheard when we were at Lakewood this month they will be moving their booths to Lakewood 400...so hopefully it will be better in the future.)

Lakewood is on the South side of Atlanta off I 85.  Here is a link that has the address and a map

Thursday admission is $5, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday is $3 and the pass is good all weekend.

Let's go buy some junk!

I am new to this site, but I have a few wonderful flea markets that I have been too that have made me think about how they look.

One was Bessemer, AL....It looks really rough but the people that go there will spend their money..they are not the kind to haggle either.

Then there was Anderson, SC....It looks rough but the people that go there are nice and don't seem to mind spending money...Very nice people in the office and the vendors are helpful.

There again in South Carolina, but in Greer, Is a place called Barn yard....All under cover..very nice place..Nice Office Staff and Vendors.

Asheville, North Carolina....It's name is Smiley's...Did really good off of their tables outside...People there were ok.

Athens, Al...a nice flea market there....try and get inside..Just remember tho they do not have a/c, so bring a fan if it is in the summer.

Columbia, SC...Barn Yard is great....It is off US Hwy 1, off of I-26 Go towards Lexington....Did really well 2 weekends in a row.

Now I am looking for other great flea markets to go to.  They have to be big and busy.  Anyone have an idea of where I can go?  Has to be in the US.
