I'd like to know this too.  I'm stuck with Smilie's in Macon.  It used to be cool, and then people started setting up booths with nothing but cheap dollar store crap.  Undecided  I like to look at the yardsale tables people set up there though.

two that i know of in the NE area:   Pendergrass Flea Market (which has sadly gone the way of the dollar store vendor for the most part)
and the J&J Flea Market in Athens.  The J&J still has that flea market feel outside among the $10 table vendors, or at least it did the last time I overhauled my wardrobe...I'm hoping to go set up there again soon (can't beat a Saturday of a Georgia home game!!), I'll follow up if its worth it.

i'm in athens and we have a fleamarket here called the j&j and it's awesome! though, like most flea markets you need to come EARLY for the good stuff.... athens has at least 5 vintage clothing stores downtown that i can think of and with those shop owners and all of the college students things go fast.... but i definitely think it would be worth the trip out here.

J & J Flea Market is open Saturdays and Sundays year-round.
With 1250 vendor spaces, both indoor and outdoor, visitors will find collectibles, antiques, crafts and more.

We have three pretty sweet flea markets here in or near Augusta.  Highway 56 flea market which has everything from designer knockoffs to goats!  THen we have a newer flea market in the same area and then one that is a flea market/ antique market in North Augusta.

I know this thread is kind of old... but if anybody's still wondering...

I've been able to find some good buys at Keller's Flea Market in Savannah.  If you're somewhere in that part of Georgia, I'd go there (I think they're open Fridays and Saturdays).  If you're in the Atlanta area, or North Georgia, I'd go to Pendergrass.

there are two indoor flea/antique markets near me - one is off of Old hwy 41 in Kennesaw & the other is off US 41 (Cobb Parkway) near the Big Chicken in Marietta. I found some awesome tintype photos at the Marietta one for CHEAP. The one in Kennesaw has tons of great antiques, postcards, books, etc...

they're both open mon-sat...

there's a flea market/ antique mall in rome... there are a bunch of antiques upstairs and flea market type stuff downstairs... usually pretty good stuff, worth the time, I think... not so much dollar store stuff... and it's not set up like an actual flea market...

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

October 12-15!
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.

Does anyone have any ideas of where to go for a huge flea market?
