A coast-to-coast journey
J. Frank | San Francisco | 08/12/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I actually came to add this video to my Wish List, and am horrified to see no reviews yet!This documentary is a favorite; my best friend (read: travel accomplice) and I love it. It is a virtual road trip, scouring the continental US for its most intriguing flea markets, from the miles-long yard sale to the urbane open-air market. Lighthearted and fun, with unbelievable merchandise (and the people selling and buying aren't so normal either).Perhaps at times this documentary lulls a bit, especially if by "documentary" you hope for an innovation like Trekkies, American Movie, or Crumb. This, remember, is PBS programming. But it is fine work indeed; although "American Culture" seems like an oxymoron, our nation's history, and especially its quirks, can be found (and bought or sold) under the tents or trees of these special roadside monuments."
