“Worth the Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

After reading some reviews of this place I was a little apprehensive about what we'd actually find here. Yes, there is a lot of kitchy junk and stuff that you could find at the dollar store. We managed to find a couple of great deals though on little things (t-shirts for $2 and cheap socks and bedding) to a couple of nice cement bird baths. We found that this is not a place to haggle prices - at least not at the time we were there (Tuesday morning). Someone told us to bring a little pull cart and we were so thankful we did! Pack some water, sunscreen, and an extra pair of shoes. It was a great time.

“A fun day at the flea market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This was our second visit to the flea market. Lots to see, so many vendors. Have the flavored iced tea at the booth and go back for a $1 refill all day. Unique with many flavors! Bought a lot of items at the market this time around. Just a great thing to do, only open Tues/Wed so don't miss it! But do beware, you might thing something is Amish made, be sure to check the labels.

This is a great family attraction with lots of interesting items for sale. Plan to spend the whole day since the market is huge.

“Dont Waste Your Time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Went to Shipshewana with a friend to shop for a couple days. We love flea markets, so the first day we decided to go to the flea market. There were tons of booths, but everything just repeated itself. Same old dollar store booths, sock booths, made in china junk. I was expecting to see a lot of items made by local Amish folks, but that is not at all the case. The next day we shopped around the local area shops which was much nicer. Don't waste your time and energy walking thru that huge flea market and coming out empty handed.

“It was Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Love to shop and get good deals. I always find presents for whole family and plenty for myself. Can find things for any age. Always find presents for myself - jewelry, gardening items, clothes, and always get at least 1 new flag.
