Beware of dealing with the Oldsmar Flea Market in Oldsmar, FL. This flea market is running a scam against persons who setup as dealers. When you rent a booth, you are told there will be a deposit. You pay this deposit (two months booth rental) along with the first month's rent. You are verbally told this is to cover any garbage left in the booth, or damage to the booth- so far, this is all okay. You are informed that this will be refunded when you vacate. However, when you get ready to vacate the  booth (leaving it in pristine condition,) and you take your paperwork back to the office to close everything out, a different story emerges! You are shown fine print in the rental agreement that says you have to give them 15 days notice to vacate. They then steal you two month's rent money!!! MANY dealers have been ripped off by these crooks. If you walk around the flea market, you will see dozens of empty booths. This is because of their notorious ripoffs of dealers. The word has spread! They are leaving left and right.

If you are looking for a flea market to setup in, please note that there are many other choices in the Tampa Bay area. NONE of which are crooks like Oldsmar Flea Market. BEWARE OF DEALING WITH THESE PEOPLE. They are unethical at best and have no concern for their dealers. It won't be long before this flea market goes out of business. I (for one) won't be back.

I urge you to not visit or shop at Oldsmar Flea Market for ANY REASON!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

You made your bed

AUTHOR: Really Now - ()

So, you're saying you gave someone money and signed an Agreement without reading it, eh? You made your bed, now lie in it.

In order to avoid any confusion and not leave a situation feeling "scammed," always read anything you're signing, and always ask questions. ("Are there any conditions on receiving my deposit back?" would have been an obvious one in this case.) 

It's no secret that a fool and his money are soon parted. The larger question is, how did they get together in the first place?
