    Several weekends each year Arizona Antique Shows hosts the Arizona Antique Market in Chandler. In the past, this event was often held at the Arizona State Fairgrounds or in Scottsdale.

    The market attracts repeat dealers who have, as you can imagine, an amazing variety of items from the 1800s and 1900s. You'll find china, knick knacks, household goods, jewelry, watches,vintage clothing, toys, books, soft goods and, well, you name it, it might be there. When I visited, I saw a customer purchase a set of antique skis, the kind that you tied onto your feet!

    Things to Know Before You Go to the Arizona Antique Market

    © Judy Hedding

    I visited the Arizona Antique Market in early 2013. Here are a few observations, some of which might be helpful to know before you go.

    1. The Arizona Antique Market is an indoor market, so weather is not an issue.
    2. The event is located in an older strip mall. It's not much to look at from the outside, but then that's not why you are there!
    3. There is no charge to park here.
    4. Inside, the place is bright and clean. It is packed with vendors.
    5. Many antique vendors here have been participating in these shows for a long time. There is usually a waiting list for vendor booths.
    6. Items for sale here must be antiques. They may not be currently or mass produced. Vendors are vetted by the owners.
    7. All items are supposed to be marked with prices. I found those hard to find at some booths. Of course, negotiating prices is acceptable here.
    8. These vendors are antique dealers, so although you may see the same people from show to show, the items they are selling will be different.
    9. The company's official website is somewhat outdated, and some pages are blank or links are broken, but the basic information about the shows is accurate.
    10. No food or beverages are available inside.
