Charlton Flea Market & Antiques Shopping Tips

  • Go hungry on Sundays. The full-service kitchen opens for breakfast and lunch from 7 a.m. through 2 p.m.
  • While you're at the flea market, visit the co-op building to browse the antique and vintage merchandise in the permanent antique-mall-style booths. The co-op building opens from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
  • Don't be afraid to haggle on price, especially in the flea market areas. Lots of sellers are willing to negotiate on price -- as long as you don't haggle the rude way.
  • Take lots of cash and your flea market tool kit. You'll need both.
