Bargain Village Market & Consignment opened this past July at Lincoln Mall in Freeport, IL. Where’s that? The address is 1211 S. Galena Ave. Freeport, IL 61032. That’s also the same place where Salvation Army Thrift Store used to be.
There are two sides that you can shop at Bargain Village, the consignment store and marketplace. The consignment store is staffed by a Bargain Village cashier. It’s open 7 days a week.
Monday – Friday 10-8: Saturday 9-7 and Sunday 9-6
Marketplace vendors can rent booth space for a short or extended period of time. Just like with a flea market or craft show, sellers man their booths on the days the marketplace is open. Those days and hours are:
Friday 11-7; Saturday 9-7 and Sunday 9-6.
I spoke with a few of the vendors who were there the first time I went in July.
The Sistas booth which was tended by Zandra Bright and her sister, Angela Binion, was there both times that I went, the second time in August.
Another booth was Debbie-tiques which had a warm feel to it thanks to the subtle lighting in the booth. There were many items to look at, I recommend that you see for yourself.
Another vendor I spoke with was selling jewelry and more.
I’ll be returning to Bargain Village in the near future to check out the crafts on display. This is a growing business, so I’ll probably check on its progress as it gets more vendors and patronage.
Yazmin Family Style had clothing, personal grooming and beautifying goods for sale.
I’ve been to one of crafter Chrissy Kreeger Loring’s open houses. She has a really neat, homey booth at Bargain Village.
There are food and fun options available at the back of the market. Want more details? Go to Bargain Village’s website: Bargain Village Market and Consignment
