DC Big Flea Market - DC's Largest Antique Event

Millions of antiques and collectibles can be seen next month at the DC Big Flea Market. The market is housed in two huge buildings with over 1100 booths on July 21 (9-6) and July 22, 2007 (11-5) at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA. Admission is $8 with free parking.

If you are trying to get your arms around how and what you might present at an estate sale, visiting a huge flea market will give you incredible clues as to what's hot (and what's not) in furniture, jewelry, silver, glass, art, etc. The D.C. Big Flea Market, held five times a year, has antiques and collectible of all eras at affordable prices and is reported to be the number one place for vintage shopping in the Metro DC area. We like the summer event because mid-year is routinely a great time to get all season items.

Lange Estate Sales will attend the event to gather up-to-date pricing guide information on period furniture, maps & political items, vintage garden items, architectural artifacts, and ephemera. This is just one way Lange Estate Sales insures that we know how to best price the items you want to sell when you are ready to sell them! Our critical advice: bring comfortable clothes & shoes, lots of small bills (and change), your own water, some extra carrying bags, business cards, sunglasses, pen & paper, and a great sense of humorous adventure! Have a blast!
