Waymark Code: WM3AXT
Large flea market that is very popular in the winter and can get crowded on weekend afternoons at that time of the year due to all the winter Texans. Has both inside and outside vendors, and as typical at these types of places, the fleas are definitely more "flea-e-er" outside. You can find anything from a custom made wooden sign, carved while to wait, to table after table of what could most charitably be called junque.
There are several entrances, the one off Victoria Road leading to the large grassy parking area north of the selling area, and the co-ordinates given for the waymark are for that entrance. The photo below is of that entrance.
While many of the sellers are permanents, staying set up outside week after week, others are transient, so on any given day you never know what you are going to run across. Below is a typical street scene .
