“Pence Springs Flea Market is located on a beautiful West Virginia country road between Hinton and Alderson in Pence Springs. Owned and operated by Shawn and Susan James since 2005, this historically unique market boasts a Spring House built in the 1800s on the property. The building was used to bottle water from the Springs that still today bubbles from the ground at the end of the building. When walking past the old building, you just might notice the faint aroma of sulfur from the water. Have a drink -- if you dare! ”
