Skyline Flea Market Hoping to Attract a Crowd Downtown


A new flea market is now open in Atlanta.

Skyline Flea Market will celebrate its grand opening this weekend.  The flea market reportedly opened last week on Milton Avenue near Lakewood Amphitheater.  

The flea market's philosophy is described on its website as:

"We strive to provide our customers with high quality new, used, antique, & vintage goods. Our vendors come from all parts of the world and only sell "REAL" products."

Skyline is open Thursday through Sunday.  

Personally, I've never been the biggest flea market fan, preferring instead to find my treasures at neighborhood yard sales.  I do think the flea market could do well given its proximity to the EUE / Screen Gems studios where props/vintage goods are often needed.

That does not describe a "Flea Market". Their upscale logo does not give the impression of "Flea Market" either. If you want to experience a real flea market, travel up 85 N to Pendergrass.

i was sad to see the market at Lakewood shut down a few years back. there were some good finds, particularly handmade furniture that was l/2 the price of retail and about 1000x better. perhaps skyline will reclaim some of that glory.

Any idea where it is? I drove down Milton twice today and so no signs of it.

@Anon RE: exact location.

Skyline is located at 140 Milton Avenue SE, Atlanta 30315.

Below I have copied directions from their website :

(From 75S)

Take I-75 S/I-85 S to University Ave SW. Take exit 244 from I-75 S/I-85 S
Continue on University Ave SW. Drive to Milton Ave SE
Turn left onto University Ave SW
Continue onto Capitol View Ave NW
Turn right onto Milton Ave SE
Destination will be on the left

Thanks for your readership and please comment back when you make it over and share your thoughts.

My Wife and I are excited this is coming to our community. We will be there to support them every weekend RAIN or SHINE!!! We have to support new businesses to help them grow. They will build up over time and personally we are looking forward to their "Upscale" Flea Market!!!

It was tiny, barely a sign outside so easy to miss. A large open air shed with a few vendors. No food trucks, no entertainment. But a skyline view as promised.
