Flea Markets of Matawan & Hazlet

October 14, 2007

So we were up bright and early and decided to check out the flea market that happens every Saturday in the parking lot of the Aberdeen-Matawan train station.  As flea markets go, they are full of random junk people are trying to hock.  Sometimes you find a real treasure, though.  I didn’t find anything that struck my fancy, but he got the Butterfly Effect on DVD.

While walking around he overheard someone say to someone “It’s less crowded this week”.  The other person replied, “They’re probably all at the Hazlet flea market”.  So he says we should try to find this flea market over in Hazlet.  We come home, do a Google search, and we see a listing for the Holy Family PTA flea market on Craigslist.  Gotta love the internet! :)

We make our way over there and are pleased to see how significant it is.  Lots and lots of tables and items.  There was actually a couple of tables selling knock off hand bags and purses.  I was tempted, but I didn’t see anything I specifically liked.  After scouring all of the tables, the only thing I wanted was a large spring-loaded mason jar that I am going to use for storage in the kitchen.  Heh.

Next week I hope to hit up some garage sales in Aberdeen and Matawan.  That’s usually where the real treasures are.  You can haggle with people more since they are desperate to get rid of their stuff. :)

  9. I’m the owner/former writer of this blog & I’ve been seeing a lot of comments left by people who want to be contacted about setting up a table at Matawan Train Station flea market. Definitely feel free to post here, but there’s nothing I can do to get you set up. I’m not sure who you should contact quite honestly. In any event, it’s probably not a good idea to leave your telephone number on a public forum such as this. :/ Best of luck!

  25. Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick
    heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

    help with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not
    seeing very good results. If you know of any please share.
    Many thanks!
