Create the Backyard of Your Dreams with These Fun Finds

Post Date: Jun 02, 2021

Shipshewana Trading Place is the largest flea market in the Midwest, featuring items from nearly 700 vendors! As you shop, you will see a selection of outdoor furniture and décor, yard games for all ages, grilling essentials, an on-site farmer’s market, and lots more!

We know you will love combining your fun finds into your new backyard space.

1.  Outdoor Furniture and Décor

As you make your way around the flea market to see what all of the vendors have to offer, you will likely spot a variety of outdoor furniture and décor on your way. Make sure you stop to see Glicks Lawn Furniture for a variety of polywood lawn and deck furniture, and DNL Woodworks has a variety of furniture that includes benches, bridges, and wishing wells.

Everyone’s décor style is different, and that what makes a place like Shipshewana Trading Place so much fun. This N That is a fun booth with bird feeders, garden items, spinners and flags, outdoor mats, and more.

2.  Entertainment and Dining

Having a beautiful space is great, but you also have to think about how you and your family will enjoy it. Sitting under an umbrella in the sunshine with a favorite book is relaxing, but yard games and grilling out are also part of the fun.

If you need some camping equipment for a fun backyard (or other) adventure, you may want to visit the E & M Sales booth. They also have a variety of indoor and outdoor games. Southern Michigan Cornhole, Countryside Sales, and Jerri’s Craft Creations sell cornhole boards and bags. Another must-see vendor is Family Fun Again, featuring giant yard versions of popular board games!

As far as outdoor cooking and dining, as you make your way around the flea market grounds you are sure to see a variety of grilling accessories, tableware, and other fun entertaining items.

3.  The Farmer’s Market

We are also proud to offer an amazing selection of seasonal flowering plants and produce in our Farmer’s Market. If you shop here in the middle of your flea market journey, you can opt to have the vendor(s) hold your items for you and take advantage of our convenient pick-up parking area on your way out. Yep – you can buy that delicious watermelon and NOT have to carry it around all afternoon!
