Flea Market: Nashville Style

The Fourth weekend of every month The Fairgrounds Nashville is home to the Nashville Flea Market! It’s in the top 10 flea markets in the country with up to 2,000 booths with a range of antiques, clothing boutiques, hand crafted furniture…you name it! My favorite part of the flea market was discovering Southern Sap Woodworks, they had a dining room table and benches that knocked my socks off. If I lived in Tennessee I would have zero dollars left to my name! Here are a couple pics of an awesome day at the market with family, friends, gorgeous Nashville weather and a special appearance with my nephew, Indiana Bones!

 

Also: if you are like me and always wondered where the hell the name flea market came from?! I did a little googling for ya! Flea Markets origin came in “1917, especially in reference to the marché aux puces in Paris, so-called ‘because there are so many second-hand articles sold of all kinds that they are believed to gather fleas.’ ” Thank ya Dictionary.com!
