Has anyone gone to this flea market? It's about an hour drive south from Columbus. According to the market layout it looks like they have a lot of shops. But that can be deceiving.

Is it worth the hour drive or not? Will I find junk there like old rusty tools .. or will I find deals?

I already went. Gotta say it's not worth the trip and gas money to get there. They had a lot of stuff. It took over an hour to walk around and see everything once. But most of the stuff had retail prices. I was expecting deals but didn't find any.

They do have plenty of nice stuff there but they are alittle bit overkill on tools and electronics. The flea market is hit and miss IMO but it does not stop hubby and I from visiting it once in awhile.

It's really, really ghetto (Wal-Mart is a notch upward); there is lots of used junk that is not worth consideration; cheap new merchandise like Chinese tube sox; outdated or near expiration groceries; boring made in china "crafts"; and it's extremely repetitive, with a lot of shops that are basically clones of each other. The summer has a little more variety with outside vendors selling some things like produce and cement lawn sculptures.

I get an impression that a lot of the shoppers go here out of the needs of survival and that's pretty sad.

Windy Acres Farm market (they had a stall in the flea market but recently they moved back out to a free standing building on Rt 73 about 1 mile east of the flea market) is worth visiting and has some great prices on staples, candies, snacks, etc.
