Bargain hunters know that Memorial Day means the return of the Gypsy Caravan flea market
, and this year's edition is bigger and craftier than ever, with more than 300 booths in parking lots C and E of the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-286-4452 or www.slso.org/gypsycaravan
), as well as more than 70 vendors inside the Millennium South parking garage. It's so big that maps and vendor lists will be handed out to aid you in your quest for the perfect antique, collectible or craft. You can get your eclectic goodies from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a $5 entry fee, or pay a $20 fee and swoop in with the early birds from 7 to 9 a.m. Concessions will be available onsite, and the entry fees benefit the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra's education and community programs.
