Flea markets across America are extraordinary gathering spots. From the Rose Bowl in California to the Eastern Market in Washington, DC, these amazing places attract unusual people and fascinating merchandise. And this lively documentary takes you to a few of the best, from the giant First Monday Trade Days in Texas to the parking-lot-sized Fremont Market in Seattle. You see ancient toys near Pittsburgh, exotic produce in San Jose, vintage clothing in New York City, and a real circus in Fort Lauderdale. You ride along 450 miles of yard sales with the Highway 127 Sale through Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama. A Flea Market Documentary is full of great old stuff, funny salespeople, and committed collectors. It's a celebration of the ancient tradition of the open-air market and the perpetual possibility of finding a bargain. It may make you want to get up early this weekend. Approx. 60 mins
