Promising when it first opened quite some time ago, but quickly went downhill.
This is a new junk flea market, not a vintage or collectors market. I don't have a clue as to why it's so crowded because there is not much of interest here.
You will find bungie cords, wire brushes, clamps and such at 'tool' vendors. Cheap Asian imported crap, clothing and resin statuettes and lots of other cheap decor. Sunglasses, hair bows, t-shirts, cheesey jewelry, sports cards, home improvement businesses with displays, cleaning products, bed sheet sets.....
Nothing is a good deal either. Everything is priced like normal store sales prices.
It's hard to move around because the public wanders as if they're are lost and block the rows.
Best /most interesting picks are aromatherapy oils, an occasional vendor with old stuff or clever handmade yard decorations, and.... the mini donuts.
There are some plants and produce, but no bargains or outstanding quality. (go to a farm market instead). Rows are nicely labeled.
BIGGEST TURN-OFF: Puppy Mill dogs plus birds and other animals (out in the FL heat all day too). It makes me phyically ill to see them and know they are abused. Those vendors are scum and shouldn't be allowed there.
I still go there occassionally to buy one item that I keep losing. Don't know where else to get it. Otherwise I step on the gas as I go by.
