What happened to that place?? Used to be a good flea market. Now it's filled with people buying/selling pills and dirty old men. It's disgusting!

That's been going on for a while. Lots of people steal stuff then trade it to the "sellers" at the flea markets for pills.

If you think pillheads stole your stuff you can probably buy it back at the Capitol Flea Market!

Uh Oh, we were just going to go to this flea market and set up shop. Is it that bad? I am supposed to go check it out in the morning.

Yeah, possibly. Even ten years ago it was like that. Bad, check everything out when you go. The police won't do a thing. Most side with the druggies. I remember back in the day when it was a nice place. Sorry, I would advise for you this much, check everything out in the morning and don't leave the stand! Don't ask for anybody of watching , even if you befriend them. You can't trust nobody down there. Most of the stuff looks stolen. You can tell.

Yes I would check it out. People can tell most of that stuff is stolen. Hell old people there take and sell.

A bloke can get a lot of nice wares there. Gifts for any holiday available, toys and electronics, bootleg movies and good food in the little kitchen. People seem to have a nice time there.

Ok, I went today and checked it out. It was nice. I didn't see any homeless people or dirty old men. Thank goodness. You had me worried. I guess whatever problems you saw were handled by management. I had a great time and we are setting up shop there.

I like the Capitol Flea Market - indoors and out. Now it's getting cold, so it will be all indoors and things like mentioned about thieves and druggies can be caught quickly. Always a few bad apples that causes the whole bag to rot.

Best flea market in West Virginia !! Great vendors, inside and out. Have been told that some vendors have never left since opening day in 1989. Don't believe any of the above negative comments. Just not true !!

Some good vendors just hate being accosted by the church people who run that one booth. They call you over trying to get you "saved" and when you disagree with their religion in any way they are mean, hateful, and rude then order you to leave. Not sure why the flea market allows them to treat shoppers this way.
