The Medina Flea Market of Collectables was started in 1977. It is normally held on the third Sunday of the month (but does vary, so check the schedule). It was started by and for individuals who like collectables. It was never meant to be a common flea market with socks and sun glasses. We all understand that a collectable is normally something we had as a child or wanted when we were younger! It may be also something that our mother "pitched"!
