The building was bought by new owners and they have closed down the flea market. The venue was occasionally rented out for things like gun shows but they are currently in transition - likely to be developed into various retail stores...

I was disappointed that this place is more of a comtemporary Flea Market. There were hardly any Antiques and absolutely no taste- just stuff scattered about in each nook. Great for an indoor walk and hand-me-downs but other than that, not much else to see.

This is a huge second hand/antique store. There is a lot to see and sometimes they have special events in the space next door. Normally it's a gun show, but sometimes they have a concert. Pretty neat place. AC too which is nice.

Neat place. Gun shows are kinda weak. Lots of vendors. No negotiating which is nice. All items are marked. Pick from multiple vendors and pay up front.

I can't remember a time we walked in here that we didn't walk out with a great find. My husband and I visited every week and always found something we were looking for. They also have many great events that you can enjoy!

There is a lot to see at Front Porch of the South if you like old stuff. Give yourself a couple of hours to walk through and find yourself a treasure. Parking can be congested at times so best to go during the week if...More
