Looking forward to June. Always have a good time here! Enjoy the fiddle players under the tee. Like the whole area.
I love coming to the friendship flea market days! It brings back memories! As a teen my sister and her husband would come there every year and camp in their teepee on the primitive side. There was a lady there, Mary, who made the best ever mince meat pies and cherry type deserts! She is no longer there but OMG the food! Lol...best memory!
My family and I absolutely LOVE going to Friendship every year. It's the ideal family vacation. We hope to spend a whole week in both the spring and fall of 2017.
Getting ready to head your way! Taking my sister Sami and my newphew Eric who have never been. We are all so excited!!
Cant wait to see all my vendor friends, and customer friends.The vets who stop in always have a good story to tell the active military and a lot of friendly kidding , The boy scouts are full of wonder about the items, putting on a WW 2 helmet or trying on a back pack bigger then they are. There great. A lot of good people at that flea market.
We are heading on 16, can't wait so excited. Love Flea Markets.
love your flea market. love the town.
Moved away back in the 1900s. I remember when Lonnie Mack played there during the shoot and flea market, in the 70s.
I love going to Friendship. For years my children and I camped out on 60 acres camping area. I would compete in the shooting competition each time. Had so much fun. I would recommend going to Friendship if you enjoy going to flea markets, and enjoy going back in history.
I've visited the flea market many times. Love to walk around and enjoy the scenery. Hometown feel and the people are awsome
I have been going to this for about 20 years, I have taken different folks each year and they all love it. It is now a family and friends annual event!
Very nice place to walk with family and friends and enjoy the scenery.
We're on our way!!
This place is awesome! Sweet deals on a variety of unique items, good people, and a great time! Cell phone service is literally nonexistent though lol, but there's enough entertainment to keep you too busy for your phone anyways
My first visit to the flea market was 32 years ago. I had just given birth to my son. We stayed for several days and camped by our site. I was able to get small jobs while there. I cut onions one day (I don't remember for who) and also help cook chickens and worked the grill for Jim Blumker(not sure if I spelled that right). Well I did not make it back until last year and I have to say, it was everything I remember. I can't wait to come tomorrow and spend the day.
My fiance and I have been coming to this American Brilliant Market for years. We live and breathe vintage and retro everything. Hunting all day long in the heat and meeting new people as well as the treasures we find everyone we go, is worth it's weight in gold. We look forward to this every year. See yall this month and for many years to come.
Love the affordable camping.What kid doesn t like playing in the creek.
My husband and I found out about the friendship flea market 4 years ago and haven't missed a show since. In fact, we plan our vacations around the summer and fall market dates. Love Friendship Village, the people, the food, and the awesome deals!
I was born in Milan at the Whitlatch Clinic in 1954 during the "Hoosiers" phenomena. I grew up with the Shoot twice a year for as long as I can remember. I have moved and lived far afield before, but don't foresee returning to SE IN any time soon. Trying to explain a shoot to a non-initiated person can be a challenge. People wearing loincloths? Well, not everyone, it depends on how "in costume" you want to get. A cup made out of a bull's scrotum at one of the stalls? At the time I saw this the offer was "Free drink to anyone who drinks from this cup." It was VERY dusty!! The setting, the smell, the sounds, this is not a "re-enactment" this is a Shoot.
We were vendors at the fall show last year. This is a phenomenal market. The staff is super nice and on top of their game. The facilities were kept clean and maintained. The other vendors were very personable. This show had a very diverse compilation of items for sale. I can't say enough great things about this market!
