This place is exactly what the title says! If you like second hand stuff...here's where you can find it! You can find anything you're looking for! There are usually plenty of vendors for you to choose from! It's a good place to look around!

I've been going to the Elephants trunk for many years! It's a great place to spend a Sunday morning. I like to go on warm days, but be warned, it gets crowded. Go early and be sure to go up and down every aisle!

I've gone to Elephant's Trunk Flea Market for the past 27 years!! I've bought some incredible primitive antique pieces. I love the atmosphere and most of the dealers are friendly. I can appreciate all the time & energy the dealers have spent bringing items to the Trunk. I do not insult them with low offers on their goods.

If you wade through the heaps of junk, you will find something of true value or a treasure that you discover here that you could find nowhere else. Worth a morning, especially in nice weather. get there early!

This flea market has something for everyone! From old and broken to fine antiques. New items like makeup, clothes, perfume, etc. There are fresh farm market fruits & veggies, and beautiful flowers, herbs and plants. This flea market is seen on HGTV's Flea Market Flip!

I'm unashamedly a victim. Love the atmosphere and even the die hard bargaining. With a little skill you can find anything your heart desires. But do steer clear of the port a potties. They are beyond, well, acceptable.

This is a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Walk through with a cup of coffee and see things that you can not find anywhere else. Antiques, plants, items from your childhood and things that your grandparents had. If you want to find a memory of your past you will probably find it there.

Until Flea Market Flip came to town. Now crowds are daunting, parking is uncomfortably close and prices have gone up. Before the "fame", used to go about twice a month and have purchased many items that I "upcycled", some small furniture (tables mostly) and decorative mirrors, frames and statuary. Have left in disgust from our more recent visits. A real... More
