AMSTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Tucked away in Montgomery County, Rockn J Flea & Antiques celebrated five years in business this past July. The year-round flea market provides space for vendors to sell used household items or antiques.
Owner Jolene Owen DiDonna opened the store to provide the Capital Region with a taste of Southern hospitality. When she relocated from Texas to the area, she felt she needed to bring what was missing to the area: Texas-sized flea markets.
“In here, it’s not a museum!” said Jolene Owen DiDonna. “You saw what grandma had and you got yelled at for touching it—here, you can play with everything.”
From clothing to hard-to-find novelty items, you could say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Because vendors rent the space, the inventory is changing daily.
Rockn J Flea & Antiques is located at 397 West Main Street & Henrietta Street,in Amsterdam. It’s open Mondays from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Thursday to Sunday.
