Bargaining over one person's treasures and another's trash has become an American past time, but the idea dates back to 19th century France.
Just one hour southwest of Milwaukee one of the area's popular flea markets takes place four times a year in Elkhorn. Dating back to 1982, more than 500 vendors fill every inch of the grounds and squeeze into exhibit barns.
