Nate’s Swap ’n Shop
Saturday and Sunday, 5 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Nate Shurin is proud of the many years of service his flea market has provided to the Kansas City area. “We are the largest flea market in the area,” he says. “We’ve been attracting people to the flea market since 1954.”
Approximately 2,500 people comb the booths daily, in search of garden tools, clothes, sporting goods, books, furniture, a host of household items, and more. “We’ve got old stuff and new stuff,” Nate says. “There’s a lot of ‘something for everyone’ here.”
While no paintings by the masters have been discovered here, Nate does remember a visitor who scored big with one of his items. “He came in looking for a car part and discovered one that ended up being worth hundreds of dollars,” Nate says. “He turned around and sold it at a really good price.”
