    The crazy thing about the Lakewood Antiques Market is that, with its 1,500 dealer booths, you really do need the full three days that it’s open every month to see all that’s there. We’ve found beautiful antique buttons, gently used train cases, old apothecary bottles and enough vintage postcards and posters to decorate a whole house. And though the retro furniture and old-time armoires leave us wanting them immediately, we always find ourselves biting our tongue and making offers late Sunday afternoon, because we know that’s when we’re most likely to find a bargain.

    International Village Market
    If you're looking for cowboy boots that can stand up to a cowhand's work, spandex clothes that can make it through a night on the town or a big-ass shiny belt buckle that will do nothing more than draw attention to your assets below the equator, then INTERNATIONAL VILLAGE MARKET is the place for you.more...
    If you're looking for cowboy boots that can stand up to a cowhand's work, spandex clothes that can make it through a night on the town or a big-ass shiny belt buckle that will do nothing more than draw attention to your assets below the equator, then INTERNATIONAL VILLAGE MARKET is the place for you. Alongside those flea market mainstays, you'll also find the occasional antique booth, used CDs and the kinds of ruffled dresses that inspire princess fantasies among girls younger than 10. Though we can't guarantee it will all be at rock-bottom prices, we can promise that it will cost significantly less than the designer-label, mall counterparts. Besides, where else in Atlanta can you munch on fresh churros while you shop? "5000 Buford Highway. Friday-Sunday." less...

    This is a difficult choice, largely because flea markets in Atlanta "suck". Whoever decided that a flea market should consist of a hundred booths selling fake Vuitton bags and pirated videotapes should be hung from the highest yardarm in the British navy. So, we're cheating slightly by honoring the LAKEWOOD ANTIQUES MARKET. Sure, there's plenty of furniture and expensive stuff here, but there are also plenty of booths where you could blow a whole day rummaging through boxes of old books, glassware, tools and other crap that the vendor didn't even know he had. Now that's what a flea market should be. And remember, it's the second weekend of every month; $3 cover. "Lakewood Fairgrounds, 2000 Lakewood Ave., 404-622-4488. www.lakewoodantiques.com" less...

    Held on the second weekend of every month, LAKEWOOD ANTIQUES MARKET is the place for plowing through endless rows of other people's stuff. We like the mix of fine furniture (armoires, dressers) and hopelessly kitschy items (KISS dolls, anyone?). In the same afternoon, you could nab some sturdy garden furniture and a poofy-pink vintage dress a la Doris Day. Cool carnival-style food, too.

And if you get hungry, there's plenty of fair fare, like corndogs, fried dough and candy apples. Held the second week of every month, Thurs.-Sun. less...
