Destination garage sales and fleas in the U.S.

Sometimes the yard sales or flea markets are so good that they’re worth traveling to – even out of state. And some are so long, you could road-trip them!

It’s true – I could find *something* great at nearly any sale! These, however, are the ‘big ones’ I’ve repeatedly heard that dealers flock to from all over – and this list is barely the tip of the iceberg. Bring empty suitcases and your wish list.

Atlanta, Georgia
The monthly Scott Antique Market, which features thousands of vendors, takes place the second weekend of every month.

Brimfield, Massachusetts
Twice a year thousands of antique dealers set up along Route 20 for this giant outdoor event that’s frequently mentioned in Martha Stewart Living magazine. Find out when Brimfield will be next.

Warrensburg, New York
An annual event that started back in 1979, Warrensburg bills itself as the “world’s largest garage sale” and also happens in late September.

Round Top, Texas
Twice a year (fall and spring), the tiny but delicious-pie-filled town of Round Top plays host to thousands of vendors who sell everything under the Texan sun.

Nashville, Tennessee
I went to the Country Living Fair religiously every year, and it never disappointed me (even if the prices weren’t always rock-bottom). If you like Country Living magazine, you will love this lifestyle flea, which sells a mixture of vintage and handmade, and has all sorts of demos and talks to attend.

Walnut, Iowa
The free indoor/outdoor Walnut Antique Show every June is smaller than some (hundreds, not thousands, of vendors) but that’s also a big part of its charm.

Pasadena, California
Thousands of vendors make the world-famous Rose Bowl Flea Market their monthly home – and have for more than 50 years.

Check out the self-proclaimed World’s Longest Yard Sale, the Highway 127 Corridor Sale, which spans several states each August.
