23 Most Asked About Products at Shipshewana Flea Market
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.
