When spring finally rolls around in Wisconsin, it brings with it its season treat: the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market. Once a modest collection of around 50 dealers setting out their wares back in 1982, this flea market has grown nowadays to around 500 dealers.

Inspired by the perfect setting of the Walworth County Fairground, the fantastic exhibition space available, as well as the area’s obvious appreciation for antiques and second-hand goods, Elkhorn Antique Flea Market is a well-attended event which takes place only four times a year. And its rarity helps to further increase the interest too, therefore its opening days should certainly be marked in the diary so it won’t be missed!

In these times of online shopping, one of the refreshing things about visiting a flea market is the joy of picking things up, having a proper browse and getting to speak face to face with stall holders and antique enthusiasts. And these experiences are provided in spades at the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market.

The Elkhorn Antique Flea Market is renowned for being a welcoming event, and as a shopper it is impossible not to enjoy it as the joy of collecting radiates from the stallholders themselves. Each item for sale has a story behind it, whether it be 100s of years old or has just been removed from someone’s household. And the vendors are always eager to share a story or two about the origins of a specific object.

There is a great and wide selection of merchandise sold at the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market, ranging from used to beautifully refurbished furniture, glassware to pottery, retro advertising to vintage linen, industrial & rustic design decor to Art Nouveau, antique chandeliers to old farming equipment, 1950s appliances to vintage toys, and everything else in between. The stall holders range from seasoned professionals to those that have literally just cleared out their basements, so the crowd attending the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market is as varied as the items for sale!

Kicking off at 7am, the Elkhorn Antique Flea Market market offers free parking and all-weather shopping, with both indoor and outdoor booths. There is also a selection of food trucks and refreshments for those who need a break from retail therapy.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
