We made it over there this morning. Went early, around 9, so there was no traffic. For all the hype the place got I wasn't that impressed with it. It didn't seem like anything special or different from the other flea markets in town, other than it is cleaner, probably because it is still new, and they have the kiddy rides. But as far a the vendors go,I would compare it with what you would find at the flea market on Highway16 heading towards Poteet. They ven had a oupe of endors elling the cheap Chineese stuff (mostly dollar stuff). There were a lot of empty spaces, probably had mostly to do with the fact that we got there early, as by the time we were leaving more places we open. We were there about three hours.

We went around 1:45 and it took us about 10 minutes to get in. I agree that there wasn't much there, mostly cheap junk IMO but it was a beautiful day for a walk. Took us about 2 hours to cover it all.

Ladies, potty before you go...

We went yesterday around 9:30 AM and it was very easy to get in and plenty of parking. Left around 12:30 and it was a mess in the parking lost. They really need to do something to control it because people were going everywhere, including backwards in the wrong direction.. My personal theory is that it starts getting busy around noon because that's around when church gets out and you can buy alcohol. Really says a lot about some people if that's true..
Anyhow, I saw about 99% crap, but some nice unique things. You really had to look hard, though, unfortunately. Hopefully the bugs work themselves out over time and the amount of cheap chinese and mexican crap shrinks. Most of the stuff we bought was hand made by locals.

Permanent, but my wife said the smell was deadly and that was in the women's... Luckily I didn't need to experience the stench coming from the men.

I'll be sure to bring a mask if I need to really, really go!

It was clean enough,when I was there. It's just small ( 3 stalls I think),there is no entrance and exit so every one was bumping into each other, and lets just say there were some large women there.

What did you buy Rd?

Yeah tight spaces are no fun.

We got a shot glass, incense burning bottle thing, Rosie the Robot stuffy, and this donkey thing you really can't describe.. I'll take a picture of it one day. She's pretty cute and definitely unique. The lady selling them said there's a whole family, so I'll probably pick the rest up some day.
