Paul Brown, star of Discovery Channel's "Auction Kings," appeared on today's "Anderson." Paul is an expert on finding hidden treasures in unexpected places. Paul and his intrepid Gallery 63 crew in Atlanta have a knack for finding rare treasures and off-the-wall objects.
Do you frequent flea markets? In the below list, Paul shares his favorite spots across the USA for scoring flea market finds.
Paul says, "I'm a big fan of neighborhood flea markets and garage sales. You get to meet your neighbors, and you never know what you're going to find. If you live in a city that's home to a well-known company, estate sales and neighborhood flea markets are a great way to find some collectibles that remind you of an earlier time in your life. I live in Atlanta, and it's always great fun to come across a vintage Coca-Cola promotional item at a neighborhood sale."
If you're interested in attending one of the larger and more organized shows, I'll first mention Scott Antique Market, held monthly in Atlanta. There's also the Country Living Fair which happens each year in Atlanta, Columbus Ohio and Austin Texas.
2. New York
If you live in New York, The Brooklyn Flea makes for a really fun day and it's a great place to score vintage furniture and decor. If you go north, there's Mower Saturday Market in Woodstock in the mid-Hudson Valley.
3. Northern California
In Northern California there's The Alameda Point Antiques and Collectibles Faire.
4. Southern California.
In Southern California there's The Long Beach Outdoor Antique and Collectible Market, and the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena.
If you're in New England, check out the Brimfield Antique Show in Brimfield, Mass which features thousands of sellers.
6. New Hampshire
The New Hampshire Flea Market in Manchester is another destination in the region.
In Texas, there's not much that can beat the Texas Antique Weekend which happens twice a year along highway 237 with over 30 acres of sellers.
If you're in the Chicago area, check out Wolff's Flea Market.
In Florida, there's the Mount Dora Antiques Center in Mount Dora, and the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival.
In Iowa, there's no better way to celebrate Father's Day than going to Walnut Antique Show in Walnut, which is known as the state's antique city.
