Shipshewana Flea Market reviews
I live about an hour and fifteen minutes away from the Shipshewana Flea Market. I have to take off work to go on a Tuesday or Wednesday, the days they're open weekly from May through September...

Not like the old flea markets
I went last week on Wednesday. It was free parking and free admission up until Memorial Day. Then they start charging admission and parking. It was about 3/4 full with sellers which made it worth it to me. Not alot of people shopping when I was there so I could take my time. My suggestion would be there's a few more days to visit before they start charging admission so go on one of those days and use the money your saving and buy something from inside. Overall, it was a good time and everyone should experience it at least once.
