I went to the Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market in New Milford today. This outdoor flea market claims to be the largest in New England. Much to my disappointment many of the exhibitors of wares began packing at noon even though the event publicized that it was open until 2 p.m. Several times while walking up and down the rows of marketers I found that items I would have liked to have purchased had been packed away. Why these merchants of things past paid to be there mystified me since they were eager to leave so early. My advice: come way before noon or forego coming at all.
