Ever been to the Meadowlands Flea Market?

This thread about the new junk store reminded me of the flea market....

I was going to post this link when the jclist artist was looking for old gears, etc for an art project. But I never got around to it.

Do you newcomers know about the Meadowlands Flea Market? (and don’t said yuck flea markets are sooo Jersey, Barney is wrong about that!!!) They have some pretty cool stuff there. I’m not talking about the tons of knockoff’s, discounted products, or second hand clothes. I’m talking about the crap that people pull out of their basements, tool sheds, and garages...the good stuff. Some of the oddest looking tools/machines I have every seen along with some wicked looking medical devices. Ouch!! Although I bet a few of you here on jclist would love to try them out.

(I think I saw the Grove Street Indian stalker there a few Saturday’s ago)

http://www.meadowlandsfleamarket.com/

Gotta love the NY fish guy yelling...”Two fer one, two fer one on the bags of shimp... I ain’t goin home wit dis stuff, gotta get rid of it, two fer one on the shimp”. Maybe the Amish bread and cake guy should try that approach.

I picked up an old friend at the flea market. It was an old rusted green metal US Army truck. That was my favorite toy as a kid. Guy gave it to me for 10 bucks!!! (don’t say anything but I probably would have gone up to a 100) Now if I could only find a time machine.

PS – there are also tons of food carts...love the hot corn on the cob. You can also get an up close look see of them tearing down Giants Stadium.


I always run into a lot of JC people there.

I went to this store a few weeks ago and got a beautiful antique file cabinet (mission style) for $25. I took it home and stripped it (it had black varnish on it) and there was beautiful cherry wood underneath. It was a GREAT buy. It looks like I spent over $100 bucks on the thing. The owner was super sweet. He gave us old clothes to lay in our car so that the varnish wouldn't ruin our trunk. He even tried to sand the varnish off of the thing when I told him I was going to strip it. They are legit and it's worth a browse every once and a blue. I'm not sure why we don't have more of these types of stores. This area needs another dollar store like I need a hole in my head.

Checked this place out last week. Lots of interesting stuff although not too much of a selection as far as clothing goes. Very open to haggling. Looking forward to stopping in again in a few weeks to check out new stuff. I poked around in there for a good amount of time.

Looks like a good place to check out if your place has been robbed.

They had some drills and lots of other tools - why not give them a call and ask what they have.
