Midwest Antique Fest and Flea Market

2700 East Illinois Street
Kirksville, MO 63501


Meet Brittany and Lindsey, the organizers behind the Midwest Antique Fest & Flea Market! These two friends with an addiction to flea markets, roadside trinkets, and tattered treasures decided to take matters into their own hands and bring a spot where you can find everything you never knew you needed, to the heart of northeast Missouri.

Not only have they taken on the feat of organizing such an affair, they’re also busy coordinating their families, farm life and careers. In her spare time, Brittany Kelsey, the mom of one, is busy helping her husband farm, as well as helping manage MFA Feed as Product Manager. She is also heavily involved in the local cattleman’s association and other various ag-related organizations.

When she’s not wrangling her four small children, you can find Lindsey West traveling with her family on the professional rodeo circuit, helping on the farm, and working full time as Creative Design Specialist for Cargill Animal Nutrition. She is also a Consultant for Rodan & Fields Dermatology, as well as a small hobby breeder of Goldendoodles.

As you can see, multi-tasking and coordinating chaos come second nature to these two. Their aim with the flea market is to start a tradition of a great show with a well-balanced mix of high quality merchandise, friendly and knowledgeable vendors, and a fun-filled, family-friendly atmosphere.

Brittany and Lindsey have been busy for the past three years scouting out a wide variety of vendors at some of the best antique shows and flea markets across the Midwest to provide a great place to find antiques, collectibles & flea market finds. With over 75 unique vendors (and growing), hands-on demos, live music and great food, there is sure to be something for everyone!
