Your research proves true. Trader Marcs closed in 2011. That was a VERY popular flea market when it opened. Theres one on the Fort Mill/Pineville border, but I warn you, its not very good. Sadly, if the INS showed up, it would be a ghost town.

I stick to the antique and group shops. Theres Sleepy Poet on South Blvd, and then The Depot in Concord, NC. Im also being told theres a weekend market near Arrowwood Road.

Id also avoid the one in Monroe, NC. 75% of the vendors all sell the same cheap crap and its even worse then the one in Pineville/FM border.

I second what Days of Thunder said about the Pineville flea market. I've never seen so many used shoes in my life!
Sleepy Poet is a very cool place and check out Metrolina Expo. You have to pay to get in but the place is massive- almost too much to look at.

Ditto on Metrolina. Its free, i believe, once a month. We went in 2011 on a Saturday and the flea market part was free.

If you want the kind where 3 dozen people bring stuff from their home, try the one on Albright Rd. in Rock Hill, south of the Bi-Lo about 1 mile on the right. Saturdays 7am to about 12 noon. They come early and leave early.

The best one for me is the one in Pineville, but others say it is not a good one.
Metrolina is a good one.

There is one in Lancaster, S.C. and Forest City, N.C. near the old Putt-Putt, and both are fairly large. I've set up tables at those, a couple times.

I can get better deals for myself as far as buying, by using Craigslist, or going around to Rock Hill yard sales each Saturday. It seems the flea market vendors prices are rather high. I go to the flea markets for yard sale type prices, and usually leave empty handed, and do not go back.

I like both new and used items. What about ones that sell new stuff like purses, phone cases, sunglasses, hardware, used DVD's and video games, etc.

Sounds like you want to go to the Pineville one then (Barnyard).

Barnyard Flea Markets|Rental Selling spaces in Flea Markets of South Carolina,Outdoor Flea Markets in North Carolina and Flea Markets in Georgia for Antiques,Merchandise and Crafts

We've been to the one in Dallas, NC and it was better IMO than Pineville.
