Sussex Flea Market 2012 is Coming

The Sussex Flea Market is one of my favorite New Brunswick events. Not the highest profile, and certainly not the classiest, but rich in garbagey goodness. And it’s this weekend! Aug 17-19, 2012!

Not A Vendor

There are always tons of vendors which range from those who specialize in things like flags, coins, automative parts, folk art, books, leather, sports collectables, and so much more. And plenty of folks who just want to unload there garage on some poor unsuspecting fool who has watched one too many antique road shows.

I’ve gotten lots of useful and useless things from the Sussex Flea Market in the past: Mittens from Nepal, Jackie Brown (one of Quentin Tarantinos Finest), Sun Catchers, Mugs, Blankets, Buttons, Hats, Knives, and a ton of other shit. If you go, you’ll find something.
