Smart Bets: Paris of the South Flea Market

It's been awhile since the Dreamland Flea Market was just a quick drive for local bargain hunters. But an even more wonderful world of kitsch, craft and ephemera is readying its vendor booths. The Paris of the South Flea Market holds a grand opening celebration at at 530 Lyman St., in the River Arts District, Friday-Sunday, July 8-10. Hours are daylight to dusk, Friday-Sunday. First, second and fourth weekends of the month will be a traditional flea market; third weekends are devoted to antiques. Food trucks and live music will be part of opening weekend. In the future, the flea market will also include beer and wine sales.
