10 Father’s Day Gift Ideas from Shipshewana Flea Market

Post Date: May 31, 2018

Check out this list below of 10 Father's Day gifts you can find at the Shipshewana Flea Market. The best part about these products - you don't have to pay shipping and you get to take them home right away!

The items and booth locations may change without notice, as is the nature of a vendor market.

1. Tin Garage Sign

Does your dad have a garage or a man cave that could use a little personality? Get him a tin sign with his favorite brand or logo on it. There are so many to choose from - all kinds of colors and sayings. I especially like the Dad's Garage one that says, "If it's broke, call dad." I know I've used that motto a lot in my own life!

Find them: DC Vending, Booth 361-362, Shipshewana Flea Market

2. Sportula

It's not a spatula...it's a SPORT-ula! These are stainless steel and the team logo (or #1 Dad decal) is cut right into it. The handles are nice and long, plus, there's a bonus bottle opener on the end!

This flea market booth carries every NFL team, every college team, some hockey teams, and even police, fire, and military logos. Your food tastes better when you're grilling with a sportula.

Find them: Sports & Collecti-balls, Booth 337/363, Shipshewana Flea Market

3. Handmade Corn Hole Boards

What dad doesn't like playing a game of corn hole at a tailgate or a yard party? These unique corn hole boards get decals on them while you wait. They even have a board that has painted trim and a stained middle - which really looks nice. It's their best seller.

If you're dad already has a corn hole set, consider getting him some new bean bags that match his favorite sports team or hobby.

Find Them: Portable Outdoor Games, Booth 1071, Shipshewana Flea Market

4. Personalized Golf Towel

Does your father enjoy going golfing? Consider getting him one of these golf towels - made just for him! You can even get it personalized right there at the flea market booth. Help him keep those clubs clean!

This booth also has other personalized "dad" items like grilling aprons and T-shirts.

Find themGrandma Bessie's Custom Threadz, Booth 771, Shipshewana Flea Market

5. Wallet

Does your Dad's wallet look like it could use a face lift? Consider getting him a brand new wallet from the flea market. These wallets have all of the essential functions and pockets of a wallet - but are so budget friendly!

There are multiple styles and colors to choose from.

Find them: Linens & More, Booth 556-557 & 740 / 769-770

6. Car Sweepers

This may not look like much of a sweeper...but don't be fooled! This nifty hand sweeper has excellent bristles on the bottom that pick up even the smallest crumbs that dirty the floors and seats of your vehicle. Fathers will love it because it's so convenient for picking up messes from drive-thru lunches!

It's so easy to empty too, just pop off the top and dump on the ground outside!

Find them: Booth 748, Shipshewana Flea Market

7. Wood Art

This booth has quite the selection of Intarsia Wood Art - great for a cabin or for a dad you likes being in nature or going outdoors.

These pieces are intricately made and reflect the beauty of creation! Your dad will love displaying this on his wall in the office or at the cabin.

Find them: Booth 371, Shipshewana Flea Market

8. Fishing Poles

For the dad who likes to fish, you can find excellent deals on fishing poles, tackle, fly rods and more at the market. Just talk to the vendor about what is best to get, and he'll gladly help you out!

Find them: Northern Gun & Tackle, Booth 817-818

9. Kettle Corn

You will thank me for this one. Kettle Corn is the perfect combination of salty and sweet - and Shipshewana has the best around! You can even get several flavors for Dad to try...cheese, blueberry, cinnamon, chocolate, or the original. I know my dad loves when I come home with a giant back of kettle korn...yours will too!

Find it: Old Tyme Poppin Korn, Booth 516 C 

10. Handcrafted Wooden Flag

Some of these are hilarious! Get your dad a street sign for his garage that matches his occupation or personality. These are light and easy to hang, plus they're a great conversation starter. I especially like the "grumpy's garage" sign.

Find them: Inspiration Mission, Booth 264, Shipshewana Flea Market
