Holly, God bless you, you're an unending source of great news! I can't WAIT until Saturday. (Tried to rep you but I guess did so recently.)

There used to be (many moons ago) a flea market in Norton, Mass. that I would take the train up from NY to go to. I'd say 50% of my apartment is furnished with great -- not good -- but great items from that wonderful place. Hope this is half as good.

Anyone know of good Goodwill/second hand shops in the PVD area?

Flea is 10-4 on Sundays Alfie. Since it's new- may take a little while to get enough vendors going and people informed.

There's not a lot of second hand or consignment in Providence- a couple on Wickenden I believe. There is a Salvation Army near the East Side Marketplace. Try Yesterdays News on Willett in Riverside, EP. Just opened a few months ago- the people there are really nice. Stock Exchange in Barrington was great until it closed! Alfred's (Barrington) is nice but can be pricey. There's a couple in Warwick- Home Again I think it's called. Although Craigslist for furniture can be good- a lot of junk of course as well.

Oh, and Lost Treasures in Seekonk is good for mahogany bedroom furniture- rest of it is small decorative items. Vinnys Antiques in Seekonk has some furniture- most places don't have a lot of really usable used furniture!!

Thank you for posting this! I'm always on the lookout for events and new things to try (and RI is chock full of great things to do). I'll definitely be checking it out!

Omg, someone else who remembers!!! I used to go there all the time with my parents (grew up nearby). It was HUGE and nothing else I've been to compares...yet.

There is, however, a nice big open air flea market down in Wellfleet at the drive-in (which, last time I knew, is still running). So if you're ever down there, it's a cool place to visit.

Thanks, Hollytree! This fills the void left by the closing of the Rocky Hill flea market.
