Pickers Find Paradise at Outdoor Flea Market

(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The Jesse James Antique Mall and Rusty Chandelier hosted its third Hoe Down of the year Saturday. But, it wasn't exactly what it sounded like.

This was an outdoor flea market featuring antiques, vintage, new and repurposed items.

The mall's owner said the parking lot market was such a big hit last year, she decided to have three this year.

Vendors take advantage of the outdoor markets to turn over inventory going into the changing seasons.

"[The vendors] are here to have fun and move some stuff. Most of us that are in this business, we fall in love with things and then we're ready to move on and flip it to get something new for our customers. You carry it around for a while and then you're like, 'okay I'm ready to move on,'" owner Angie Hummer said.

The Harvest Hoe Down Saturday was the last outdoor market at the mall planned this year.
