Looks enticing from the outside, but the outside is as good as it gets. Really disappointed with the whole vendor mall. A couple of booths had some real antiques, but they were priced like Nashville (way too high). And when I went into the restroom, OMG!, well, all I can say is that I ended up at the restroom in Dairy Queen. I would say that next time I will pass this one, and stop just down the street at "the other vendor mall".

From Business: Preservation Station Market and Event Center is a 39,000 fully heated and air-conditioned former elementary school transformed into an antique, unique and vintage…
Dirty cluttered store full of "yard sale" leftovers and Chinese import items. Building old, dated, poorly illuminated, and has the musty smell that goes along with a leaky roof. The bathrooms will turn your stomach (with to Dairy Queen in the front lot to take a bowel movement because the stall was so sickening). Obvious disrepair and little or no upkeep. Workers sitting at front of store texting on cell phones, gave no assistance whatsoever. This is a poor example of a flea market, and probably the most disappointing one that we have ever visited. We will not be returning to this nasty place. The owner needs to take some pride in their store, because the dealers are clearly suffering (several were moving out the day we stopped by).
Overall Traderbaker Flea Market is a waste of time for buyers as there are several other flea markets and vendor malls in the immediate area that are much larger, cleaner, better stocked dealers. Traderbaker just rents booths, and thats about it, I recommend that you shop the others, BEFORE you waste your time shopping here.
I love shopping a this Mall! One can shop all day there and not see everything that is in this store! It is like a HUGE yard sale but under one roof!
I have a booth at owensboro and I like it there. I sell military surplus and the people have all been friendly . As for theft that is just a fact When we set up at flea markets where we watch our stuff, we still get ripped off. we get less stuff taken at Owensboro then any where else we have. It is a good place.
