Flea market Christmas shopping

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Sometimes in the midst of all the holiday hustle and bustle shoppers are determined to grab those door buster buys. Why not keep your wallet happy and save by shopping at flea markets?

"Some of its old some of its new but you'll be paying less of a price here than you will at Wal-Mart," said Flea Market owner Cecil McDonald.

When you're checking things off your Christmas list, you'd be surprised as to what some of these flea markets may carry.

"People come in here during the holidays basically looking for the same things they do year around they come in to buy nice things, presents for the kids the family close for the kids."

Even they see the crowds during Black Friday, but without all the chaos.

"We had a lot of people come in Friday. We didn't have no parking problem we didn't have no body pushing and shoving anyone on Black Friday we did a good business on Friday, people were buying stuff for Christmas."

The variety is never ending as new things enter the store daily.

"If you're looking for something today it can be here tomorrow if you don't find it today. It's the same thing in every flea market and same way in the antique stores."

You'll find antiques, collectable's, something new or old; it's all under one roof.

"You won't find that at any of those stores."
