I am new here and am looking for flea markets that sell "junk".

Not the ones that sell new/"hot" merchandise you can find in Walmart, but things like vintage pieces??


Thanks!

There's a an indoor Swap Meet off of I-17 and I believe Indian School (or Camelback I know it's one of the two) that used to have great merchandise. I haven't been in forever but I would think it's still open. Also try "First Fridays" which is a neat art walk gallery with vendors selling cool merchandise. It takes place near downtown Phoenix every 1st Friday of the month. There are a lot of cool specialty stores in central Phoenix that sell vintage you just have to look around.

There's also the Brass Armadillo, (further north off I-17-- check their website), and a few other markets that rent stalls to individuals to sell their stuff... I can't think of the name of one I've heard about right now, but it will come to me.

There are two flea markets in east Mesa on Main St. just off of Crismon. I go to both of them quite often. Every time I need a specialty kind of tool, they usually have it. I always check there first before I buy new.

This is an area in which I have a certain expertise:

First, the indoor swap meet at I-17 and Camelback has closed down. There is, however, a recently opened indoor swap meet at the corner of Thunderbird and 43rd Avenue.

In terms of outdoor markets, the first I would recommend is the market located at the drive-in theater near 59th Avenue and Bethany Home (5650 N.55th Avenue to be exact). Just down the road is the Glendale Park & Swap at 6112 N. 56th Avenue.

Also of note is the American Park N Swap at 3801 E. Washington. Location is east of downtown.

If willing to drive a bit, Tucson has a couple of good options, including the Tanque Verde Swap Meet (4100 S. Palo Verde Road) and Tohono O'Dham Swapmeat (5721 S. Westover Ave).

Is that one still open? Thought it closed after the shooting.

I like the Brass Armadillo, the one near the Airport (near the old dog track), Downtown Glendale, the one at the drive in (Glendale), yard sales, estate sales, and craigslist.

Went to the Mesa "Flea Market" last weekend (at Baseline/Crismon). Certainly not a flea market. Tons of stuff made in China all full price, all nicely laid out in the booths with owners actively seeking any buyer they could find. Everything had a price tag and alot of it I could buy other places cheaper. Was very disappointed. Want to try some of the other ones suggested by posters.
