While attending the Flea Market, We entered and charged $1, ( 50 Cents per person, not .25) by a female with wild looking blue hair. We followed the cars on the forced path to the lower screening area. Noticing there was no handicap parking, we drove out and back in to ask this same person about Handicap Parking. She pointed to some cars and instructed us to go left again and follow the cars in front of us.We did and parked right behind them along side and off of the road we went to the bottom on.We were clearly off of the road and traffic was proceeding around us. Several other cars had also parked there. We went inside the grounds and walked around for about 45 minutes, IT was too hot and we decided to leave. While walking out of the gate we looked down towards our car and there were 3 tow trucks with cars on them , and mine was hooked to the back end of a roll back, ready to leave. We approached the drivers as well as 2 "security " personnel and were told that it would be $150 dollars to get our car since we were illegally parked. No signage on that side of the road anywhere, and was clearly wide enough for 3 cars. The only sign was 30 yards away and on the other side of the road on a fence. While all the time our handicap placard was very visible in the windshield. WE talked to each of the people and were told it was up to the other guys. Just a run around. Finally after pleading with one of the drivers they reduced it to $75 to drop the car. SET UP,

I've lived in Atlanta for the pass six years and today was my first time going despite knowing of Starlight Drive In flea market; let alone new owners who took over the property in the past couple of months or so. There were assorted amount of good stuff, decent, fair and questionable stuff for those vendors who deserve to be looked at, as.... " why you came out here with this!! " This places a bad impression on those who are trying to make a decent living selling their goods. I enjoyed myself and caught up on some good deals from costume jews, undergarments from Vicky secrets & vicky smell goods along with urban socks. They even have toys, bulk boxes of pampers, toilet tissue, commercialized / residential detergents, smoothie drinks to be made, vegetable / fruit stand, vanity cabinets, curtain rods, etc' etc... It's worth the trip, should you have time to spare and looking for odd / ends.

Perhaps I was expecting something like the Swap Meets they have in Orange County, CA at the fairgrounds. This was nothing like that. It was gross, the items were gross, it was just a gross experience. I would rather go to Goodwill any day of the week! I would NOT recommend it.
