I really wanted to go to this flea market because of it's affiliation with the TV show "Flea Market Flip". I really enjoyed it. Two dollars each to get in. Lots of assorted items of every possible thing you might imagine and even things you might not (I swear we thought we saw a small coffin!). My personal experience of... More

Sometimes fame can even ruin a flea market. If you're looking for a bargain, find another flea market. "Flea Market Flip" has come and gone, leaving behind high prices and limited bartering. Not the place to find fishing, hunting, vintage knives or camping equipment. The perfect place to find shabby chic, country stuff and finds for the creative mind

We go at least a couple of times a year. There isn't as much furniture as some other fleas, but we always manage to find either what we were searching for, or something unexpectedly cool. It's not very big--we usually walk through in under four hours. I wouldn't say this is a place for 'serious' antiquing but it definitely a... More

We stopped here based on a local's recommendation and it was awesome. I really loved all the choices from everything from furniture to small nicknacks at great prices. This place had a huge selection and I can't wait to go back.

You wouldn't believe how big this place is. If you really want to score a bargain, then you need to get there early and with a lot of time. Do remember where you parked, as the lot lacks numbers. If it's dry and windy, you'll end up eating a lot of dirt.

Today we traveled to the Elephant's Trunk Flea market in Connecticut. Beautiful ride from upstate NY. We will do it again. Three hours is enough time to walk up and down the well organized rows. You won't get lost like I do in Brimfield (it's smaller here also) Food trucks always had long lines. Cheap prices for what we were... More

We visit one weekend. I don't know if it was the weather but it wasn't as big as some people think, but it was interesting.

My wife and I love going to the Elephants Trunk. It's a great little flea market. Not Stormville or the Big E but certainly fun for a few hours.

One of the biggest & best flea markets in the area. Huge field with hundreds of dealers. Everything from tube socks to expensive antiques. Go early. I get there for the 5:45 early buying. Great deals & few buyers. But once the place opens for regular buying there are still great deals to be had. The Trunk is a flea... More
