The Kentucky Flea Market has been a Louisville tradition for nearly 50 years and has grown to 1000+ booths. Today, Louisville resident Terry Stewart runs the event, which his parents founded, with his son and brother.
As a kid, “I was bringing all these dirt-covered glass bottles home,” he told Spectrum News 1, “and my dad said well, ‘We’ve got to figure out a way for you to sell this,’” and thus the flea market was born.
The oddest thing he’s ever seen for sale? A casket containing real bones.
The market runs Dec. 30- Jan 1. at the Kentucky Expo Center.
