I’ve been going to flea markets ever since I was a kid growing up in Dallas, Texas. Now years later my obsession sounds more sophisticated and glamorous here in the city as I scour “vintage boutique shops” for great finds but at the end of the day it’s all just one big flea market.
They say “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Absolutely. Even to this day, my twin sister and I trade our things every time we visit each other and I come back with what feels like a new closet. Her trash is my treasure and vice versa.
So you can imagine I was very happy to hear that the DC Big Flea Market is July 21-22 nd at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly VA. Everyone loves a good bargain and what better place to get that then the largest Antiques and Collectibles show in the Mid-Atlantic.The DC Big Flea Market started in 1996 and is still going strong.
The show was created by 2 generations of women (mother and 2 daughters) Joan Sides (mother) Marthia Sides, and Dee Dee Sides.
What makes DC Flea Market unique, aside from the size, are the prices. Dealer space is very affordable and so is the entrance fee (8 dollars for 2 days). Visit their website www.damorepromotions.com. The DC Big Flea Market has Antique Furniture, Collectibles, Vintage Clothing and tons of Estate Jewelry and much more, all at amazing prices!
Happy buying and collecting!
