Road Trip continued........Nashville Flea Market

This place has become my favorite destination on the 4th weekend of the month. Word is that the fairgrounds where this is held has been sold for a convention center and the shows will end by late this year. That is so sad, because it's a real old fashioned flea market, with a great antiques section, as well as anything else you could want (a dozen Titelist golf balls are 2.00).

Shoulda bought that mannequin and the door holding her up, but the truck was already loaded!



(Just in case you live in a cave and missed this---you can click on the pictures to enlarge them)

I could have filled 10 trucks this month since there were more dealers set up for the April show. The booths are spread out over a large area, and you really need comfy shoes and a cart--some prices are high and some low....but it is always interesting, especially if you like architectural.

Above is the booth of Cindykay...nostalgia*gal...and below is her partner Charlie's booth.

All those industrial looking stools would have jumped in my van...and those tall plant stands in picture #7. This looks like another market I'd love to visit - thanks for the great photos!

What great pics you got of the flea, Nancy. I believe you may have to get a larger van...maybe a uhaul! ;-) Yes, I've heard the flea market is closing, too. Surely they will find another location.
Hugs,
Sandra

I love, love, triple love that industrial table with folding legs(?)! The hard part looks to be deciding what to buy.

Looks like a lot of good stuff. I am so ready for summer, to be freed of my kid chauffering to sports events and hitting some fleas!

Hi, what a kick! Someone emailed me that you took pictures of my spaces at the Nashville Flea Market.

Your pictures- number #6 and #7 is mine and my partner Charlie's spaces. What fun to find on your blog!

I am also laughing as I took just about the same pic's to post about later.

Best regards, cindykay

I think I'm going to need a mop for all of the drool that is all over my laptop!

Keep your fingers crossed that they find a new place to set up so your wonderful shopping can continue.

Happy hunting,
Teresa
