They told us so
To the sweet anticipation of
Missing what passed in a flash
Wasn’t it yesterday?
When sleepless nights and rushing minds fused with flea market Sundays?
Shoppers, Sellers, Staff
New faces and wonders merge with the old
Heart souls we call family
Your flea market journey blends with ours
You are our home, this amazing Rosemont
Flashlights, wagons, treasures
Moonlight missions lead to sunrise
Each day unique, this year the strongest
Missing what’s paused
But it’s only for now
Time will send us spinning toward next season
And we will do it all over again
Our words and pictures do not embody the full perspective of Wolff’s Flea Market
Your creative contributions complete the vision
Sending heartfelt thoughts of gratitude, peace, health and kindness to our flea market community as we say goodbye for now and look to more in 2024!

Seller's Rules & Tips wolffs.com FACEBOOK & CRAIGSLIST We encourage our vendors to post their items on social media: facebook page, Buy, Sell, Trade Group & craigslist. These listings are FREE! We love this concept because buyers and sellers are able to meet in a neutral location at the market (must have a selling space-no parking lot sales). This also draws new customers to the entire market and helps everyone! Many vendors have had success with social media. Customers have come from as far as Iowa to purchase their items! For more advanced posters, please "tag" your photos & posts with #wolffsfleamarket and @wolffsfleamarket. If you don't know what this means, please disregard! EARLY CLOSE DAYS Occasionally the Rosemont market may need to close early due to a stadium event. We continue to have a steady customer flow on these days because we are an "early shopper market". The majority of shoppers attend before 11am. Don'

As the day progresses, air currents from overhead planes and other weather conditions can also cause windy conditions. Occasionally we may require canopies to be taken down due to weather conditions.
