   River Road Flea Market
In a city overflowing with furniture suitable for the Sun King, and some of it dating back to his reign, its safe to say that you have choices when it comes to decking out the shotgun. The River Road Flea Market steps in to fill the gap between yard sales and consignment shops hooked up via conveyor belt to the mansions of St Charles. The walls stand filled with time machines ready to take you and your dollars for a ride back to say, Acadiana c. 1953. Giant metal crawfish hang from the ceiling, imported Mexican art graces the outside, vinyl, cookbooks, and swords exist with nary a vendor to be found. Acting more as a showroom for other's wares, haggling just doesn't happen here. As you mosey up with your finds to pay (cash & check only) the amiable clerk, indulge yourself... the best Slim Jims in the city live right there on the counter. At $0.25, they're the best bargain in the place.
