Sparks Kansas Antiques and Collectables Flea Market

Twice a year the quiet little town of Sparks in Kansas positively bursts to life as over 75,000 visitors flock to attend the Sparks Kansas Antiques and Collectables Flea Market, a phenomenon that simply must be seen to be believed.

Though it is certainly hard to imagine, the town of Sparks in Kansas usually has a population of roughly… nine people! To say it is a quiet little town would be an understatement. However twice a year, in Spring and in Autumn, this town positively bursts to life as the Sparks Kansas Antiques and Collectables Flea Market hits the area. Over 75,000 visitors flock to this antiques and collectables flea market to browse, bargain-hunt and buy the offerings. It is a phenomenon that simply must be seen to be believed.

Sparks Kansas Antiques and Collectables Flea Market has been in operations since 1982 and the event has grown each year that it has taken place. Popularity is still gaining, and it is becoming the event that antique hunters and second-hand lovers make sure they attend each year. Sparks Kansas Antiques and Collectables Flea Market hosts upwards of 500 booths, and with 450 of these being dedicated to antiques, it is no wonder that vintage and antique lovers are here each time without fail.

The attendance at the Sparks Kansas Antiques and Collectables Flea Market is helped by its strategic location. It is not possible to reach it without passing several other markets along the way, and all coordinate openings so that there are two mega market weekends during the year. This is another reason to make sure these dates are marked in the calendar!

There is a little bit of everything for sale at Sparks Kansas Antiques and Collectables Flea Market. Vintage clothing, jewelery, books, artwork, furniture and household decorative objects, tools, toys and glassware, to name just a few, are some of the goods to be found. Though the event does last all weekend, many vendors will call it a day pretty early on the Sunday, so be sure to make final offers on coveted items in plenty of time.

"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."
