A couple weeks ago a girlfriend called me and asked me if I wanted to go to Sparks. It's about 10 miles away from White Cloud, KS (which also holds it's own little flea market during the same weeks). Of course I said yes! I hadn't been in years and was thrilled to see it hadn't changed a bit. If you live anywhere near the Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri border this is must see. White Cloud is such a small town it's not even incorporated. It happens twice a year, once in the fall and once in spring. You will find the best kind of junk here!
If you get a chance to go take the extra time to find the lookout monument. You climb a rather smallish hill and can look out and see all four corner of the states. Cheap thrills. I know.
Another reason to go is the food trucks. Of course, they all offer a variety of nice healthy fried foods including fried cheesacake. Yes, fried cheesecake! I ate fried cheeseballs and a funnel cake bigger than my head.
Here is a list of things to bring if get a chance to go:
Measurements from your home (think door frames, windows, rooms, etc (or whatever you may be looking for)
CASH-no cell service, no credit cards!
Truck (I know not everyone can find one...but you will wish you had one)!
Trailor (if you plan on buying bigs find a friend with a trailer)
Rolling cart or your kids wagon
We had a blast and came home with a door strapped to the top of her car. Hers, not mine. I was pretty good and just got a handful of things. Anyone find any good stuff lately?
