Near Rockford, there is an all-night flea market that nocturnal shoppers will love.

Being A Late Night Person

Years ago, before I hosted a morning show on the radio, I was a nighttime person. I did not enjoy getting up early. I liked staying up late too.

Well, my job changed that for me. Sometimes on the weekend, I will stay up way too late. That means sleeping in the next day. It is a nice change of pace.

Late Night Activities

When I did not have a bedtime, I also liked to do activities much later in the day. Seriously, I would go grocery shopping at midnight. It is very different but easier. There is nobody out and about.

If you prefer shopping late at night, I think I have the exact event that you are going to love. It is an all-night flea market.
