There is nothing better than an end of summer/early fall flea market or antique show. Two of the big ones I have been to in the past have dates coming up in early September: the Sparks Antiques and Collectibles Flea Market: in Sparks, KS and the GREAT Brimfield Antique and Collectibles Show in Brimfield, MA.

Sparks Antiques and Collectibles Flea Market: Sept. 3-6 in Sparks, KS

sparksAbout Sparks Antiques and Collectibles Flea Market: “Sparks Antiques and Collectibles Flea Market features more than 500 dealers. From this number, 450 sell antiques. If you are searching for the right antiques and collectibles, this is definitely the market for you. Started in 1982, this market is strategically located because it is right in the path of several other markets along the way, which are held the same weekend. Together they draw 75,000 people looking for treasures.”

The Sparks Antiques and Collectibles Flea Market will be held Sept. 3-6 in Sparks, KS.

Brimfield Antique and Collectibles Show: Sept. 8-13 in Brimfield, MA

brimAbout Brimfield Antique and Collectibles Show: “The Brimfield Antiques Show is the largest outdoor antiques show in the world, with over 6,000 dealers and 130,000+ visitors during the course of the week. While it is convenient to refer to it as “The Show”, it is actually comprised of 23 fields, owned by “Promoters”, who lease spaces to dealers from all over the world. The Show takes place three times a year, usually around Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day.”
