I’m visiting Oregon this summer and want to hit the best flea-markets and swap meets Oregon has to offer. Any suggestions? – Sims J.

The two events that come to mind are my two favorite events that hit the Willamette Valley in early September.  I know you said you were visiting Oregon this summer, however, if you are able to extend your trip, it would be totally worth it!

First of all, Albany holds an event each year called, “Antiques in the Streets!”  It is held Saturday, September 8, 2012 – all day long!  This event is held every year on the Saturday after Labor Day.  It’s huge and with that and all the other antique shops in town, you are sure to fill your entire Saturday.

Another great location for antiques is Coburg, Oregon. The small town also hosts an Antique Fair every September. This year it is on September 9, 2012 the day after Albany’s and it is even bigger!

We have several hotels in Albany, however, there is a very sweet B & B in Brownsville called the Brownsville House B & B.  Cyndi and Bob have lived in Brownsville for over 30 years.  The perfect place to go to after Albany’s Antiques in the Streets and a just a short drive to Coburg the next day for their Antique Fair!  There are also a lot of B & B’s in Eugene just outside of Coburg for lodging as well if you choose to stay close to the Sunday fair.

    Sumpter, Oregon is a tiny town on the eastern side of the state that holds a huge flea market three times a year, usually on Memorial Day weekend, 4th of July weekend, and Labor day weekend. It’s a great flea market where you can find just about anything.
