Hillsville, VA holds an annual flea market during the weekend of Labor Day. It began as a fundraiser for the local VFW but grew into a whole town event. Hillsville does not look like the same town with and without the flea market. Hundreds of vendors and thousands of people participate in the event. Attendees find everything from a gun and knife show to antiques and wholesale items.
I took a couple photos of the street, but you really cannot get an idea of the crowd. On each side of the street, yards, fields and parking lots are packed.
My great uncle and aunt, Gaylon and Novella, first took my siblings and I to the Hillsville Gun Show and Flea Market when we were children.
