Mick’s Flea Market


(I wrote this blog before surgery)

It is getting hard for me to travel these days. I knew quarantine and surgery loomed in my near future, but Rooster and I woke up in the mood for adventure. The town of Gas Cty, Indiana, isn’t far away. We decided to travel there and see if we could find an antique or junk shop. Therefore, Rooster and I decided to take a short trip to Gas City, Indiana, and pay a visit to Mick’s Flea Market

We pulled to the curb in front of 212 E, Main Street Gas City, Indiana, and knew by the display of guitars in the window we’d come to the right place. Mick’s Flea Market has been in business for many years. I’ve noticed the interesting assortment of items in their front window whenever we drive through this small community. Rooster and I never took the time to stop in the past.

The moment we walked through the door, I knew we’d found one of those shops that sold a little bit o everything. Rooster couldn’t wait to start roaming the aisles.

The unique thing I discovered about Mick’s Flea Market

It can be frustrating to walk into one of these junk shops and not locate what you are looking to buy. Flea Markets are often disorganized, but I found Mick’s the exact opposite. The items displayed in a very orderly fashion drew the customer’s eye.

What we brought home from Mick’s Flea Market

If there is an unusual item buried anywhere in one of these junk shops, Rooster is sure to find it. This time he uncovered a teapot that looks like a train engine. I can’t wait to get home, fill it up with water, and put it on the stove. I’m curious to see what happens when it starts to boil. Maybe I’ll make some popcorn, sit back, and watch the show.
