Hobby Horse Antiques and Flea Market emporium is grounded in Maine, and offers a peek into the cultural past of this area of the United States. Visitors are guaranteed a fun few hours browsing through some random curios interspersed between a great selection of antique and collectable items.

Hobby Horse Antiques and Flea Market is a seasonal affair, just opening for the late spring and summer months, which is quite typical of the huge selection of flea markets in Maine. There are indoor and outdoor areas to the complex, so fair weather does of course help to make the shopping experience all the more enjoyable.

Pricing of the goods for sale at the Hobby Horse Antiques and Flea Market is generally fair, but as with almost all flea markets the vendors are all ears if alternative prices are offered. Often, bargaining is an easy way into extended conversations with the stall-holders, and they make for a friendly and eclectic bunch at Hobby Horse. They are keen to engage with visitors, to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for their goods as much as to encourage a sale, and it is great to stop and chat to pick up some interesting information along the way.

Hobby Horse Antiques and Flea Market features a wide range of items for sale, including movie memorabilia, furniture, decorative objects, cabinets, wood carvings, ouija boards, glassware, pins and musical instruments. This list is by no means exhaustive, as Hobby Horse Antiques and Flea Market has quite an impressive collection to behold.

When driving around the area, it is definitely worth popping in here for a look around, and surely spending some money is inevitable.

"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."
