23 Most Asked About Products at Shipshewana Flea Market

Post Date: Dec 18, 2017

During Shipshewana Flea Market season, I get the pleasure of working inside the flea market office. Part of my job is to assist customers (whether in person or on the phone) with their questions.

With all of the vendor-related questions I get on a daily basis, I noticed a trend in the specific flea market items our visitors ask for over and over.

Most questions have to do with where certain vendors are located. Questions like:

  • "Where is that one lady that was here 5 years ago who sold purses and stuff?"
  • "What booth has the clothes for geese?"
  • "Do you know the name of the one guy who was always at the end of the aisle?

So, this year (2017),  I wrote the most-asked-about products down on a piece of paper and decided to share it with you just for fun! It will definitely give you a glimpse of the variety (and quirkiness) of the products here at the Shipshewana Flea Market

23 Most Asked About Products (In No Particular Order)

1. Southwest Native American Jewelry

We have a regular vendor called "Quiet Eagle" who sells beautiful jewelry. Unfortunately, they are only here on certain days during the season, so we get lots of questions about this vendor.

2. Spices

Most people are looking for the "Shipshewana Spice Company," famous for their Happy Salt and a variety of other great spices. 

3. Mary Kay

It's amazing the amount of beauty supplies you can get at the flea market.

4. Sunglasses

Indiana summer days are hot, bright and sunny. You can find some great sunglasses at the flea market for even better prices.

5. Bulk Party Supplies 

Throwing a birthday party or wedding shower? Stock up.

6. Tupperware

Yes, believe it or not.

7. Cleaning Cloths

There's microfiber cleaning cloths, and then there's a vendor who sells "Holy Moly" cleaning cloths which are simply magical. Lots of people ask for this vendor.
