Things you should have with you at the Nashville Flea Market

It's Spring so that means Flea Market season!  Yay!  Have you ever wondered what to take with you to the Flea Market?  Well, if you have, you've come to the right place!

My local flea market is the Nashville Flea Market, held at the Nashville Fairgrounds.  The parking lot is at street level, but the fairgrounds are quite a hike up a hill.  Wearing comfy shoes is a must!!!  It is so worth that hike up the hill because the Nashville Flea Market is AWESOME!!  There are many vendors inside,  in climate controlled buildings, and a bunch outside.  The weather in Nashville can be a little unpredictable.  It could be hot and it could be chilly. So I always check the weather and wear layers.

I always take a cart (non vintage similar here) to haul all of my treasures.  I actually bought this vintage shopping cart at the flea market.  I sprayed some sealer on it to keep the rust from getting on everything.  It folds flat to store easily.  I like to stick a reusable shopping bag down in the bottom of the cart to keep my purchases from falling through the holes.




The next time I go to the flea market (4th weekend of the month)  I am going to take a wagon for a test drive.  It's so easy to pull and I think I can fit more stuff in it!




Rather than carry a purse, I carry a simple tote bag.  It can haul my wallet and all of my other essential items, as well as any small purchases.  This tote bag is my favorite- look at how small my babes were!

The most important thing to bring is CASH!  Some vendors take cards, but cash is always king! There is an ATM at the flea market if you forget, or need more.

Most of my favorite booths are outside in the barns.  That means there is a lot of dirt and a lot of dust.  I always bring hand sanitizer and wipes to keep my hands clean.  There are also bathrooms inside the buildings with running water.

A tape measure is a good thing to have on hand to measure your purchases.  Nothing worse than buying something and figuring out it won't fit in the spot you have planned for it, or even worse, 
not fit in your vehicle to take it home!

I always bring a water bottle and a few snacks.  Food and drinks are for sale at the flea market, but I'd rather save my money to score treasures!

I have had the best time and found the best stuff at the Nashville Flea Market.




The flea market is such a good place to score one of a kind treasures.




I found all of these vintage lamp pieces!





You can find so many treasures at the Flea Market!  If you take a few things with you such as
  • layered clothing
  • comfy shoes
  • cart or wagon
  • tote bag
  • cash
  • hand sanitizer
  • water bottle and snacks

it will make your shopping trip so much better!
