Maybe my expectation were too high. I was expecting something like the Mesa Market in Arizona and was really disenchanted. Quality of merchandise wasn't there. Really just a bad flea market.

I recently moved to SD and have never been to a swap meet before so I don't have anything to compare it to. My fiancee and I keep going back, our favorites are the toy vendors and the small plant vendors!

Thanks for the great review of Kobey's Swap Meet! We hope you come back and visit us soon!
