Vintage Garage Chicago Vintage Flea Market
Rain or Shine! April through October will be the 3rd Sunday. The Vintage Garage vintage flea market is 100% covered, making this an easy set up and break down for vintage vendors.
All in one day.
Set up, sell and break down. There is a sense of urgency during the show. We're there to get it done. It's all about buying and selling great vintage.
Start with April
If you decide to sell at Vintage Garage Chicago the following month, you can leave a deposit at the show to keep your space. If you prefer, you can pay for multiple shows at once. You need to only fill out one BIG application per year. Then you can use the shorter monthly dealer application which is available after May.
The cost for a full space at Vintage Garage Chicago is $175. This includes the $25 City of Chicago merchant fee. If you are paid in full by noon on the Thursday before the show, the cost is $175. The cost is $185 if paid after or at the door. A full space measures approximately 18'x18' feet, or two parking spaces. This includes room for a vehicle. Load in for full space dealers happens at 6:30 am the day of the show.
a 9'x18' half space is $125 if paid by noon on the Thursday before the show. There is no booth sharing. Each dealer must have their own contract signed and their own space. All half spaces are located on the south wall of the 2nd floor as space allows. Load in for half spaces begins at 7:00 am. Do not line up before your load in time.
6 Foot tables are available for rent and should be ordered ahead $10, $15 on site.
Spaces will not be pre-assigned without payment by Thursday at noon. After the deadline, spaces will be assigned at the door based on availability.

A few more things-
- Vendors drive their vehicles right into the Vintage Garage Chicago vintage flea market. A 7 ft. clearance fits everything under the size of normal a cargo van. If your vehicle is larger, you can go into our courtyard (10 ft. clearance) or inside the first floor. It's close and easy to unload from the street.
- It's a ONE day show. You arrive at 6:30 a.m. and most are pulling out by 6:00 p.m.
- No tents needed! This Chicago flea market is open air, but covered. A few major downpours in our past seasons proved that buying and selling vintage at the Garage stops for no weather.
