Many Malaysian numismatic collectors already knew Amcorp Mall Flea Market as one of a must visit flea market in Malaysia. You can find almost all dealers in Klang Valley on Sunday at the flea market. Many other new flea market try to copy what Amcorp Mall flea market has to offer, some are still operating, while most of it don't get a very good response by collector and closed after few months operating. The flea market in Amcorp Mall exactly focus more on antique, handycraft, souvenir, memorabilia and collectibles but you can still find other item like crafts, toys, books, home decor, homemade food and many other thing in the flea market. If you want to visit this place, it is recommended you go on Sunday since many of the sellers will be there, Amcorp Mall claim they're more then 300 stalls operating and they had started since 1997. The flea market manage by AMG event management on the 1st floor, you can contact them at 03-7956 2999 & 7956 7555.
What is the best time to visit?
Amcorp Mall Flea Market open on weekend starting from 10am until 6pm but if you want to go, I am advising you to visit it on Sunday morning since it will be hard to negotiate with the sellers when many people start to come in to the flea market after 12pm.
How do you go there?
If you're from KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) or LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal), the easiest way is to go by taxi and the taxi charges are around RM60. From LCCT, you can also use bus to KL Sentral and it will only cost you RM9.90. From KL Sentral, you can go to Amcorp Mall using Putra LRT train to Taman Jaya station, it will only cost you RM1.60. After you arrive at Taman Jaya LRT station and still cannot figure out where is Amcorp Mall, you can asked anyone in that station. Many Malaysian are willing to help you with the direction.
What you can find at Amcorp Mall Flea Market?
You can find many collectibles especially coins, banknotes, stamps, vinyl records, CD's, old books, old radio's, brass antique and Coke-cola collectibles. Before your visit to this place, I am advice you to study the market price of the item that you want to buy, some items are not cheap but hunting for antique and collectibles are not about the price. If you're looking for that item for so long, even the price is double from the market price, you will want to get them in your collection. On my last visit to Amcorp Mall, I saw a vinyl by The beatles-"A hard day's night", some vinyl collector must have been searching for that records for so long.
As for coin and banknote collectors, you can find almost everything on Sunday. From numismatic books, coin holder, coin album, banknote album, Straits Settlements coins and also latest Malaysia banknote prefix in this place. As what I always told my readers about Amcorp Mall, you must know the market price first before you come and visit or you will end up in frustration because paying for a high price. Many newbies collector who are just start collecting think that you all item in flea market are cheap, that is not true, you can find cheap item if you know the price of the item you looking for. Most of the dealer at Amcorp Mall flea market don't put their good collection on the table, you need to tell them what you want to find. They will bring it out if they have it for sell.
