SHOPPER TIPS FOR WOLFF'S FLEA MARKET

SHOPPER’S TIPS

HUNGRY?
ROSEMONT: Food and Beverages are available at several booths around the market

Pets
Sorry, due to local regulations, pets are not allowed at either of our markets. Service animals welcome.

If You Love It
Buy it before it’s gone! But remember, most purchases are final. Be a “Nice Shopper” If someone is looking at something you are interested in, please wait off to the side until it is put down. Then go and look at it.

Finding Your Way Around
Make sure to walk the entire Market. You will find new merchandise, garage sale, antiques and collectibles down each and every aisle. And remember, if you walk by every booth (both sides of the aisle), you have walked over three miles on some days!

Refunds
When buying new merchandise, make sure the vendor will give you a replacement or a refund if it's defective. If you have trouble when returning or exchanging an item, contact a Wolff’s Supervisor. Most garage sale, antique and collectible merchandise is usually sold "as is".

Check Electrical Items Before Leaving
Electrical outlets are located near the Food Area at the SW corner of the Arena. You can test your electrical item(s) to see if they are in proper working order.

When to Haggle and When to Not
Most garage sale vendors will probably come down a little in their price. Sellers of new merchandise will probably stick with the posted price. When in doubt, ask anyway-there's no harm done. Vendors are people too; please don’t be rude, as politeness will help you negotiate. Sometimes buying in volume allows for a discounted price.

Plan Ahead if Buying a Large Item
Think about how you're going to get larger items home. Most Wolff's sellers don't deliver, although some may have a warehouse where you can pick up your purchase at a later time. Bring a tape measure to help you figure out if your purchase fits into your vehicle or the space where you plan to place it in your home.

Rummage
When shopping for garage sale items or even new merchandise, make sure you look behind and under what is displayed. You may find hidden treasures!
Have a Good Idea of What You Want But Be Open to Surprises
If you have limited time, know just what you are looking for. Chances are you'll find it! Even though you may have something specific in mind, if you are alert, you may be surprised by an unexpected find!

BRING CASH
Although some vendors may accept credit cards, most sellers are "cash and carry". Small bills will be helpful in paying for items as well as haggling. An ATM is available inside the building at both of our locations.

Wear the Right Clothes (Watch the Weather)
Comfortable clothing and walking shoes are a must when shopping the seemingly endless rows of bargains at Wolff's. You should also consider wearing a hat as protection from the sun and applying sunscreen. Light clothing on warm days and sweatshirts or windbreakers on cool days will also make your shopping experience more pleasant.

Arrive Early

By arriving early you can take advantage of the first offerings and larger selections available at garage sale, antiques / collectibles and new merchandise booths. Also, you will have more time to browse, compare prices and merchandise.
