California Flea Markets

I don't like fleas, unless they're markets. California has a handful of flea markets that rank among the nation's favorites, and while the best known, most promoted fleas get plenty of bites, there are some amazing outdoor markets that you gotta' see! Pictured are the grounds, views and some items sold at Treasure Island Flea.
