Some things continue to improve with age, like antique furniture, aromatic cheeses, and rolltop desks made out of roquefort. Savor history-filled items with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get an early-bird ticket to the 39th annual Gypsy Caravan market on Monday, May 30th, located in lots B, C/D, and E of the Millennium Parking Garage South on the North Campus of the University of Missouri St. Louis (up to a $20 value). Children under twelve are admitted free at all times.

The St. Louis Symphony Volunteer Association's Gypsy Caravan organizes one of the largest antique, craft, and flea markets in the Midwest, with up to 20,000 people expected to attend this year. The 7 a.m. early-bird ticket grants a full two hours of perusing before general-admission ticket holders, who risk becoming antiques themselves during long waits for admittance. Nearly 400 outdoor and 72 indoor vendors will occupy booths plying antiques, collectibles, crafts, jewelry, furniture, clothing, and other unique wares. Complimentary shopper’s guides plot out retail excursions with maps, vendor lists, and navigational star charts. Browse toys, DVDs, and comic books at Tim Metzger's table; deck yourself out in vintage jewelry and custom-made apparel at the Blackberry Exchange booth; or please your feathered friends with a recycled-tire bird feeder from Chalily Pond and Gardens.

Event organizers team with vendors serving up cuisine and beverages of all types so that hungry customers will not be tempted to gnaw on items at handmade candle stands. Complimentary shuttle buses ferry attendees from free parking lots to the Gypsy Caravan site. All fees support the St. Louis Symphony and its community and education programs, which include scholarships for baby grands hoping to one day achieve solo careers as player pianos.
