Our Story

What started as a large storage facility quickly evolved into something different and off-the-beaten-path. Our small flea market began with 10 vendors. Once word spread across the Greater St. Louis Metro Area, we soon had 150 vendors under our wing.

It wasn’t long until our facility expanded to 60,000 square feet, and we eventually built two restaurants alongside our market. Guests can walk right to Route 66 Kickstand, a local watering hole that serves up fresh pizza, cold drinks, modern video slots, and good times. After shopping all day, guests can also visit Teri’s Route 66 Diner and enjoy coffee and warm plates of American fare.

Interested Vendors & Charity Benefits

After rebuilding our space to better accommodate our vendors and customers, we’ve evolved into a new and improved flea market that runs year-round. We’re extending our reach as a diverse one-stop shop for travelers and Midwesterners alike, serving the Greater St. Louis Metro Area in Illinois and Missouri. We’re an indoor and outdoor swap meet equipped with everything our vendors need, including:

  • Newly-renovated facility
  • 30+ vendor spaces (indoor & outdoor!)
  • Three storefronts
  • Electricity, lighting, & awnings
  • Parking
  • Public restrooms
  • Indoor climate control
  • Full-service diner, bar, & gaming area

Our goal is to help our vendors create a popular swap meet where they can better cater to customers, collectors, and folks who are simply passing by and perusing for merchandise. If you’d like to become a vendor or host a charity event at our facility, get in touch with us!
