Picc-a-Dilly Flea Market

This morning I drug my suportive boyfriend to the Picc-a-Dilly Flea Market at the Lane County Fairgrounds.  I’d never been to a flea market before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

We were greeted with a $1.50 entrance fee and a vegetable stand.  So far, typical Eugene.

The flea market is housed in the Expo Center, which has thee “rooms.”  There were vendors everywhere!

We saw all kind of stuff.  Old jewelry, toys, videos and DVDs, tools, housewares, etc.  You name it, it was there.

For the most part, both vendors and shoppers were older.  Most looked to be in their retirement, and were likely selling their original belongings. We chatted with an older gentlemen who sold jewelry.  He had a variety of cardboard boxes full of rings, bracelets, watches, earrings, etc. in plastic baggies.  It was his intricate inventory system, which he explained to us … in full detail.

There were also some interesting characters . For their privacy, I won’t post pictures, but just imagine a Hagrid-esque man wearing a tie-dye t-shirt with a parrot, and a Charlie Chaplin look-alike.

Picc-a-Dilly’s schedule doesn’t look to be regular or have a pattern, so check out the Web site to see when it’s happening again.
