The General Stanton Inn Flea Market, 4115 Old Post Road, Charlestown, RI
Isn't there something so American about flea markets--especially outdoor ones like Charlestown's General Stanton Inn Flea Market?
Besides being set on the 7-acre homestead-turned-inn, from where American Revolutionary War hero, General Joseph Stanton, hails, Charlestown's Flea Market honors history by offering American antiques--some preserved since the days before our Nation's birth.
This democratic flea market, also offers new merchandise, collectibles, art, crafts, jewelry, clothing, and Farmers Market items, in a full range of prices, affordable for all. And of course, the art of bargaining is always part of the all-American Flea Market. The General Stanton Inn Flea Market is alive with customer-vendor negotiations, every weekend, now through Columbus Day. The Flea Market is open Saturdays, Sundays and Holiday Mondays (like this July 6th), 8 a.m.-3p.m. "Eager eagles" (early birds) are always welcome. Admission to the Flea Market is free, with a $2. parking fee charged on Sundays only. 10 x 20-feet vendor spaces are available every weekend, at rates ranging from $20.-$35. per day, depending on location. Non-profit organizations are invited to set up sales and/or information booths at the General Stanton Inn Flea Market for free.
