There were deals to be had at the Spring 2013 Historical Society Flea Market. Anything and everything could be found within the Speedway walls. This year’s flea market drew in thousands of people hoping to find that one special item.
By 9am, thousands were already shopping at the flea market. Parking spots were scarce, and people had to drive up and down the aisles waiting for others to leave. Usually, most people were just dropping off their treasures so that they could go back out to buy more.
Sticking with tradition, the Historical Society was there at the bake sale. They sold all types of delicious baked goods, including muffins, brownies and no-bake cookies.
“This is the best part of the Flea Market. I come here more for the brownies than I do the antiques,” said Brownstown resident, Glen Dryden.
While the flea market sells all types of items, it is geared as an antique market.
“Flat Rock can be a secret hiding place for collectibles if you know where and when to look,” said first time shopper, Norah Noble, of Flat Rock.
If you missed the flea market, don’t fret, because it is held again in October. Stay tuned for more information.
