It’s almost that time of year again…Three Rivers Festival time! I think it might possibly be my favorite week in Fort Wayne, as there is always something to do. It’s hard to narrow all of the festivities down to my absolute favorite, but if I had to choose, one of my favorites would definitely be the Antique and Collectible Flea Market at Lawton Park.
It is always the first weekend of the festival, so my mom, my aunt and I always get up early and browse through the many items for sale and then, of course, hit Junk Food Alley, before calling it a day. This year the Flea Market is Saturday, July 14th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, July 15th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
You can just about find anything you are looking for. There are booths with collectible cars, antique toys, and homemade crafts. In past years, I have been able to find Avon products, health and beauty products, previously viewed DVD’s and even brand new Vera Bradley items!!!! The majority of items are reasonably priced, but of course, you may find some higher priced items in the antiques and collectibles. I confirmed that Delmar Video will be at the Flea Market with great prices on previously viewed movies!
If you take the time to really look through all of the booths, though, you may just find a hidden treasure! I always come home with something that I just had to have, and I’m sure you will, too! Happy hunting!
