Many shoppers drive all over the metro area looking for bargains on certain products. While this is one way to find a deal, it can also be time consuming and frustrating. Going all over town is not the most efficient way to spend an afternoon in search of something. In the end, it can wind up costing consumers more due to extra gas usage or cab or bus fare. Fortunately, there are solid options to traveling city wide. A large flea market is a terrific alternative – one place to go to find a variety of items in many categories.

Convenient and Easy to Find

In a large metro area like Chicago, flea markets can be found around almost every corner. Some are outdoors and seasonal, others are indoor and open year-round. But one thing most markets have in common is variety. Most everything under the sun can be found in a larger flea market. Some shoppers are not aware of just how many different wares many carry. Almost any type of clothing, jewelry, electronics, shoes, blankets and candy or snacks are usually in stock at most markets.

Many venues now offer only unused items for sale, ensuring a high-quality product. And despite the fact these are brand new items, most stores are still a terrific place to find a great bargain.

In the Chicago suburb of Villa Park, you can find a true gem, 5 Star Indoor Swap Mart.  Five Star is a unique and fun spot to find deals and enjoy a day out.  It is a place you can spend in the community with your family and friends.  A trip here is more of an adventure than a shopping spree. In addition to browsing, you can enjoy a meal at one of their restaurants, see a movie, or even get a haircut. The mart is conveniently located right off I-290, on North Avenue.
