Scout Flea Market is one of those events that will leave first-time visitors torn – should you share with your friends the amazing experience you had at this fantastic flea market, or rather keep this little gem and its bargains all to yourself? This flea market, which takes place just a few times a year, has a real celebratory feel, making it an event not to be missed, whether visitors are thrift and vintage enthusiasts or just searching for a great day out.

Scout Flea Market usually takes place on the parking lot of True North, a 6000 square foot antique store, home to some of the best antique vendors in the Morris area. This means that there is plenty of space for vendors to spread out and for shoppers to peruse! There is live music to dance to along with a disco ball, an indoor swing to ride, a big screen showing all the best movies of the 1980s, and food aplenty. Perhaps most importantly, there are more than 70 vendors from the area, who definitely seem to save up their best goods to display at this flea. They make the most of the setting, the crowds, and the atmosphere, and shoppers can find some great bargains here.

The range of items for sale at Scout Flea Market means that there will be something to please everyone visiting. There are great vintage tools, clothes, cowboy boots, jewelry, trinkets, pins, buckets and cabinets, furniture, posters, vases, and more. There is awesome salvage on display with some great ideas from the stallholders regarding re-purposing and up-cycling. Vintage and antique enthusiasts will also not be disappointed here as there are always some true treasures to be found.

Scout Flea Market also likes to showcase handicrafts from the local area. The vendors are very creative, and browsing through their wares can be a wonderful source of inspiration for those with a crafty mindset. Mark the date of the next flea and be sure to visit – you will not regret it.

"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."
