Flea Market — A Place To Get All That You Need and More!

Ever heard the term ‘flea market’ and wondered what it meant? Ever wondered how one of your friends got something so antique at such an inexpensive rate? Or how does your friend have such a unique collection of photo frames? Well, the answer to this lies in its very name!

A flea market is a form of market that allows its vendors to sell their previously-owned merchandise, that they feel is ‘not for them’. Flea markets, owing to their diverse vendors, hold goods that one might not find anywhere else. Along with getting anything ranging from regular clothes to home decoration goods to antique pieces, a flea market also provides you a value for your money.

So, still thinking about getting a unique variety of clothes at reasonable rates; or getting toys for your kid who, you know, will break them in an hour or two; or of fulfilling your passion for collecting those antiques, and showing them off at your place? Well, look no further, your Hanover Flea Market is giving you this opportunity to fulfill your heart’s desire!

Do visit us this weekend and explore the variety of goods we hold!

Top 3 Stops You Need to Take For Your Fall Road Trip

As the college students are bundling up for the fall semester and the parents are rushing for their kids to be ready for the school year, the leaves are falling behind them. When summer comes to an end – sadness is in the air. However, if you sit back and really enjoy the fall season you’d be surprised at how much beauty there is.

Yes! Summer is full of freedom and a lot of fun road trip with your friends, but getting in a car that can burn your skin makes it harder to enjoy the summer especially when you have an AC waiting for you inside. In contrast, the winter is filled with freezing temperatures that make it even harder to get out of bed. For fall the temperature is what we like to call perfect! Its typically in a good range that is comfortable to be outside without the burning of the skin.

Thinking of taking the scenic route? Good choice – especially in fall. The trees change colors and you begin to see the different patterns of yellow orange, and brown. You get to experience the transformation of nature itself.

Now that we convinced you to take a fall road trip here are the top three places you should check out:

Finding Real Value in Antique Markets

Today you hear a lot of millenniums talk about vintage vibes and antique markets but what they fail to address is finding the real value in the experience of it all.

Most times people tend to go to these markets to browse around and look at items. But, if you pay attention, each item has a story to tell. If you’re hunting for antiques or vintage items, look for signs of authentic age. There are many reproductions of antiques that look old because they are made to look old. If you’re not confident you can always ask someone over at Hanover Flea Market. We will help you examine each of the items to determine its rich history. After all, the ones that collect are the most enthusiastic teachers.

Another effective way of finding the value is cultivating patience. There is usually a long learning curve to becoming a knowledgeable collector. However, this long road is fun and exciting – not to mention a great investment. Following this, we find that the happiest customers are those who follow their heart. Find items that you are guided towards. Ones that amuse and delight you. One you find aesthetically pleasing and that you’re excited to tell a story about. An object is just an object until it has meaning.

Some of the most valuable types of antiques to look out for are:

  • Coin Bank
  • First Edition Books
  • Costume Jewelry
  • Outdated Electronics
  • Lamps
  • Christmas Ornaments
  • Silverware
  • VHS Tapes
  • Advertisements
  • Soda Crates
  • Dollhouse
  • Record Player
  • Luggage Set
  • Typewriter
