Who's the guy in the cap? Looks like a pumpkin to us. You'll find these pumpkins and lots more of their cousins at the Ada Flea Market.

Ada Flea Market: "There's someone for everyone"

There’s a song by Arlo Guthrie “You Can Get Anything You Want At Alice’s Restaurant.”

While, no relation to Arlo, Ada’s Gus Guthrie’s Ada Flea Market is sort of like Alice’s Restaurant.


Gus says that there’s something for everyone at Ada Flea Market. Located at 111 N. Main St., Ada, the market is open Thursdays from noon to 5 p.m., and Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Everything you want...including antiques, furniture, electronic items, kitchenware, toys, book, games, collectibles and lots more.

It's October - time to tell us your all-time favorite horror flicks

By Torie Wright, Icon intern
My favorite time of year is now. Fall’s weather is perfect and we also celebrate my favorite holiday: Halloween. We’re about a month away from seeing costumed kiddos roaming the streets, but it’s just the right time for getting into spooky movies.

I challenge you this: starting now, watch one horror movie per week. On Oct. 31, report back to us at the Icon with your list of movies watched and tell us which one was your absolute favorite!

Send your list to: info@adaicon.com.
