    Im not sure if anyone has heard of The Liberty Barn outside Auburn Indiana, but I had a BLAST in there! The ppl are so nice and helpful. Not open until warmer weather permits…cannot hardly wait.

    Indiana definitely needs more flea markets for us shoppers to be able to sell after shining up and repurposing. Texas, NY, CA, and FL…sooo Lucky. Looks like the kids may be going to Disneyland afterall…so long as I get a day to bargain hunt too. All of Indiana lets try and help ea. other out. We could always pull a pickers? Or maybe do a swap with ea. other on things. Tell me what you are hunting for and I will hunt for it also for you. Im hunting for old chandeliers to either fix or for parts…yes the chrystal ones…

    Indiana/Michigan stateline Antique store and flea market in Fremont Indiana has a flea market 3 times a year. I’ve been fortunate to be a vendor there the last two years.

    There are lots of other Antiques stores and Flea Markets within an hours drive in Indiana and Michigan to visit.

    Leroy and Ilene Heintz run the antique store and flea market.

    Here is the address:

    I love the Kane County fair/flea market in Illinois. It’t usually the first weekend of the month from April through October, but the info should be on their website. The Ann Arbor antiques market in Michigan is a good one, too. I believe that one is once a month also.

    I found a head/torso mannequin this past Friday at "Hillbilly Flea Market" in Ashland, KY…much like the one in the picture below.

    Some of her plaster was peeling but she was a deal. Had pretty eyes with long eyelashes.

    I took her home for $5.

    She sold from my booth the next day!!!!

    or we also have http://assetrecycling.org/Products.html

    What do you have in your area?

  •  Anonymous #70800

    That could be the reason…..ROTFLMBO!

  •  Anonymous #70799

    And…..is that the reason why you feel so comfortable here at the JR!? LOL ((Maggie))

  •  Anonymous #70788

    Gigi…never heard of that, but it sounds interesting. I love nuts!

  •  Anonymous #70768

    just a fyi tip….just read an article in american profile or relish? that comes in our sunday paper about a couple who make syrup from shagtree bark….and they make hickory too.

    have you ever heard or tried either kind of syrup, i guess it tastes really nutty??

  •  Anonymous #70765

    We went and gathered hickory nuts yesterday in a BIG forest. There was water standing everwhere. It was awful but we got 13 grass sacks full…

  •  Anonymous #70763

    I can understand why they did that. You should see my yard. It never has time to dry out between rains. Don’t know when I will get to mow again. Oh well, that’s a good excuse for me not mowing….LOL

  •  Anonymous #70748

    For Maggie – The sale tomorrow has been postponed until the 31st due to the field being too wet and flooded. Just wanted to let you know before you head that way. They rented over 100 booths! Jan

  •  Anonymous #70653

    Maggie – I plan on being there by 7 or 7:30 so I will give you a shout if I see you. Hope your SIL is better by Saturday and you get to attend. Jan

  •  Anonymous #70650

    Jan…I’m going to try & make it there! My SIL got sick on our trip, so it depends on how well she is doing. We usually go in her car (suburban).

  •  Anonymous #70606

    For Maggie – Please email me for information on an upcoming flea market/garage sale in our neck of the woods. Thanks! Jan

    There is Junk Bonanza in MN Sept. 17, 18 & 19 at Canterbury Park in Shakopee. Not that you needed a reminder probably for this one.

  •  Anonymous #68816

    One coming up, that I have been a vendor at for over 10 years, is the Argyle Antique Gas Engine Show & Flea Market near Colchester, IL. There are city wide garage sales and a large flea market area underneath loads of pine trees in the state park. The event takes place during Labor Day week-end. There is also a craft area and lots of great food.
