Anacortes Flea Market
A Beautiful Indoor Flea By The Sea!
As you may have noticed there is a great deal of construction happening here at our lovely Flea By The Sea!
We'll Get to that, but first we'd like to say: Yes, We are still very much open.
our business hours are the same, and for us here we work each day as if nothing at all has changed. In fact, we continue to bring in great new things to see, Enthusiastic new vendors offering great finds at even greater prices, and of course all the familiar faces you've seen if you've come in before or can see in the "Meet Us" Section.
Get To It!
Now for the Details. The State of Washington has decided that the Light here at Sharps Corner must go, and have decided that in it's place a roundabout should replace it. in order to bring this roundabout to existence, the state has invoked Eminent Domain to acquire the land it has deemed necessary for this roundabout. Unfortunately, some of that land includes a large portion of our parking lot (Home to our legendary Dollar Sales) and driveways. We had hoped this construction would not effect us, but the unfortunate truth is that it truly has. While many of you our regulars whom we always enjoy seeing, have come to us asking:
"What is going on?"
We have seen very few new faces, and sadly all the new faces we have seen have said the exact same thing,
" We couldn't tell if you were open with all the signs down and construction equipment outside."
This coupled with the preliminary layouts for the roundabout have made it overwhelmingly clear that as sad as it is for us to say aloud.
We must formally announce that we are currently making plans to relocate.
Please keep in mind that this move is only a move of our location, everything else you love about us will remain the same or maybe even get better. while we cannot yet say where it is we will move to, please check back frequently for updates each and every step of the way, and of course if you have any idea or suggestions we would love to hear about them on our Facebook page (Click Here to go now.)
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and Thank you for sticking with us through all these radical changes. and be sure to check back often for updates!!!
Most importantly, all of our Family here just want to Say:
Thank You for your patronage!
Our beautiful indoor flea market offers 10,000 square feet of thrifty new and gently used items. as well as antiques and much much more!
Things to see by the sea!
Most people say they cannot tell if we are a thrift store of a Museum, and we agree! with a vast selection of antiques that highlight the San Juan Islands illustrious past. There's always something fantastic to see and best of all, it's all for sale!
let's cover some basic questions
Where Did you get that?
Well maybe not you specifically, but folks like you. See, we have multiple vendors with various methods of collecting and acquiring the goods they sell here. As for the vast majority, it's purchased from estate sales from all around the northwest Washington area. Which means, if you have an estate you would like to part with or just a few items. Come in and see us, we'd love to make you an offer.
Would you like to sell it yourself at your own pace but don't want to stand around watching your stuff all day long. We can do that too! Or, if you would like to make a career out of it, keep reading then come ask us about setting up your very own vendor space in our market.
This one's on sale, that one's not?
It can be a bit tricky believe us, we know! so inside our 10,000 square foot building is not just one owner, there's actually lots of owners. Lots of regular folks like yourself seem to have a "knack for knick knacks" but no place to sell them, who wants to set up and take down a yard sale or flea market table every single weekend, and paying rent and utilities for a whole building just for their little collection?!
That's why they come here. Each vendor gets to decide, what they sell, how much they sell it for, and also, when they want to offer discounts. So, sometimes, two items you might find, both the same, each priced differently. that's why it's so important to check all over, you might find it cheaper, right around the corner!
Do you buy stuff too?
YES WE DO! We love buying stuff too, that's how we got into this to begin with! Whether it's just a few items or a whole Estate, give us a call or come in and see us.

Throughout our 10,000 square feet you will find around every corner some piece of the San Juan's beautiful history like this 1911 Shattuck Piano.
upstairs you will find, tucked away in a corner affectionately called "the Record Room" an assortment of electronics from many other times, from Phonograph's, and reel-to-reel recorders, to this Type 21A Wire Chiefs Test unit, the original phone lineman's "compact" mobile testing station.
At a flea market I always head for the jewelry table first.
History is for you to keep!
Collectibles in every corner
Something for everyone!
Whether you have collected it all your life, or are looking to start collecting, we have a great many things to see and collect.
If every item could speak!
Quite a great many stories we would have here, come in and join us in imagining what they might be!
