The Inside Scoop:

  • Watch for special event markets, such as the toy show and the popular overnight flea market.
  • Take plenty of cash. You'll have more power to haggle, and not all vendors accept bank and credit cards..
  • You'll find the best selections early in the day. Near the end of the day when the dealers start to pack, you'll get the best bargains -- especially on heavy, bulky items they don't want to load.
  • Concessions available all day.
  • While you're in the area, browse the galleries and antique shops in St. Charles.
