Neighborhood Flea Market - Am I in the US?

Right next to our RV park, shown here on the right half of this aerial shot, is a HUGE Mexican flea market, shown on the left half.


Alot of it is inexpensive clothing and jewelry.


These shirts were only $1, and brand new. Notice everything is in Spanish.


I was looking for a Mexican outfit for a theme night at our upcoming Dance Rally, and I managed to find everything I needed. This blouse was just perfect, and cost $5. I probably could have even talked him down, but I didn't.

I also got earrings, a necklace, a flower for my hair, for a total of $3.50. I already had a skirt, belt and boots from a thrift store.


There was a nice assortment of fruits and vegetables, but also some unusual items not usually found in other flea markets in the US.


Lots of different kinds of birds, plus roosters, bunnies, chicks, and even a goat.


Lots of stores had very nice boots, hats and hat bands.


A great selection of pinatas.


Even tombstones and caskets!

Wow... I really dig these Mexican Flea markets. We've traveled a lot in Baja and always stopped at them. What town are you in? We love to travel that route from Harlingen to Del Rio and on into Big Bend. I've played music in a couple of saloons down there, like the La Kiva in Terlingua. Just great.
