Description - The Best Flea Antique Vintage by Pamela Keech
"Among the countless flea markets in America, there are those that deserve to be called legendary. Scattered around the country, these are the markets with hundreds sometimes thousands of dealers and whose spectacular settings, covetable offerings, and colorful histories make each an unforgettable experience and a unique adventure. Pamela Keech a museum curator who shops professionally at flea markets profiles her top twenty choices, the flea markets that can be counted on to surprise and delight at every turn. Tackling these mammoth events, however, is not for the faint of heart. For starters, the size and scope of each market can be overwhelming no, are overwhelming. They cover acres and acres and miles and miles. (To give you an idea of their scope, there is one that stretches from Maryland to Missouri and another from Michigan to Alabama.) The Best and Biggest Flea Markets in America is an essential guide for shoppers who want to get the most out of each venue. All the practical details are covered- how far ahead of time to make reservations, how to avoid wasting precious time in traffic jams, how to navigate the miles of aisles, how to determine the best paths
