Oklahoma City Will Host Massive Flea Market This Weekend
As the season changes over there is a return to normalcy across the state. More events in more places offer more ways to entertain your now-longer days. One of my favorite things to participate in is the humble, classic flea market.
You've never peeked into my home, but it's mostly decorated with old stuff. Not new stuff that looks old, but literal old stuff. A handful of oil and gas signs I found in a field outside of Hollis, huge two-man wood saws we found rummaging through grandpas "forbidden" tool shed, and old crappy hotel art that I've painted pop-culture characters into. Mainly Futurama garb...
I love old stuff, but it's getting harder and harder to find these days. Flea markets used to be 7-day-a-week businesses and they've somehow become only weekend-worthy traveling events. Regardless, OKC's big flea market is this weekend at the fairgrounds.
Are you going to spot something worth infinitely more than it costs? Not likely.
Is there going to be a ton of junk in the midst of a few treasures? Really likely.
Is it going to be something to do on an otherwise chilly weekend? Absolutely.
If you're down for a little rummaging, here are the details. It's Buchanan's Vintage Flea Market, Saturday and Sunday March 18-19 at State Fair Park in OKC.
They'll do one of these flea markets one weekend a month for the rest of the year. If you get the chance to go, go. You never know what nostalgia you'll find.
