Great flea market with many different vendors with interesting items. Prices were reasonable. Items ranged from advertising memorabilia to home made baking. Cheap admission - $1. Fun couple of hours and went home with some treasures!

We spent several hours walking around in this place. It was nice and a great way to spend the day. I love when the thrift and vendor sales are held here.
