The origin story of 49 South Antiques and Flea Market is pretty awesome. This antique market started as a small stall in an existing flea in Jackson, Mississippi, which closed down in 2005. The customers’ demand for bargains and collectables was such that the demise of the market became more of a relocation, and just a short distance away 49 South Antiques and Flea Market spawned. Now with around 80 vendors, this market is as popular as it ever was, and continues to delight visitors with its wares.
One of the big selling points of 49 South Antiques and Flea Market is the open, friendly nature of the vendors and organizers. It feels like one big family, and many visitors here are regulars, popping by once a week at least to catch up on news and gossip.

There is some very fine glassware to be found, as well as record collections, furniture, china dolls, vintage clothing, comics, toys and much, much more.
