If you're off work today but can't stand the thought of another bite of baked beans or potato salad, head over to the Gypsy Caravan for a serious change of pace. This is the 36th year for the antique, craft and flea market spectacular benefiting the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra's community programs. You'll surely find something unique, as more than 350 vendors set up shop on three parking lots on the north campus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road). Admission is $5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or pay $20 and enjoy early-bird admission from 7 to 9 a.m. Children twelve and younger are free. And if you do happen to get a little peckish during your browsing, food and beverages will be available. For more information, including directions and parking maps, visit www.gypsycaravan-stl.org or call the gypsy hotline at 314-286-4452.
