    Call me a collector, or a junk junkie, I love swap meets. Real swap meets where people rent tables and sell their things. Sorta like a gun show, but with everything.

    They have 'em every weekend in El Cajon and San Diego at the Sports Arena, but that's a bit far to go for a couple hours next weekend.

    There used to be one east of Portland in Gresham or Troutdale, but I cannot find it anymore. There's a useless website called fleafinder online with about a dozen addresses, all defunct (or now pornshops on 82nd). Whoever put that up there should take it down because it is 100% BS.

    Anyone know when/where any real swap meets might be near Portland, Vancouver or Salem? Maybe something occasional that I've missed?

    Thanks in advance!

    There's one out close to Delta park. The building looks like a furniture shop or something...

    Go to Brooks, west side of the freeway last weekend in July and first weekend in August. "The Great Oregon Steam-up" All kinds of cool old machinery, AND a massive flea market just as you are describing, with extra emphasis on "JUNK"! Take the whole family and make a day of it.

    The Steam up is a great time. ALL kinds of tractors, steam driven log mill, threshing machines, trolleys, old gas engines, truck museum, "model" railroad you can ride, Tractor pull where people step on the sled as it moves along to add the weight, and more tractors in parade.
