San Diego Swap Meet : 3 Reasons To Go (and Love It!)

The San Diego Swap Meet is a one of a kind place. Offering tons of different items and products, you are guaranteed to find what you are looking for. When you first think of a swap meet, you think of a rushed, busy place that you try your hardest to avoid, but this event is really nothing like that. Of course you have the great deals and prices that are irresistible, but you also have the opportunity to see products and items that you don’t see with the every day eye. The San Diego swap meet attracts not only new items but historical items that are really amazing to see. Here are 3 reasons to love the San Diego Swap Meet:

1. Easy entry and parking – The entry price to the swap meet is very affordable for any family in San Diego, only 1 or 2 dollars per person depending on the day you attend. The swap meet is located in the parking area of the Valley View Casino Center in Downtown San Diego, so there are tons of parking spots, making the swap meet very easily accessible. Both of these factors make the swap meet a more reliable and easy place to be able to enjoy.

2. The Prices – The deals and prices at the swap meet are incredible. Not only are the prices low from the start, but you are able to negotiate prices on certain items to better fit your needs and wants. You can find items that are used, and bargain for the price that you want depending on its condition. Every item is owned by a different person that runs their own booth and brings their items from other places for the swap meet. You can find very low priced unused items as well.

3. The variety of products – You will find anything and everything at the swap meet. There are hundreds of booths set up, each one different in their own way. Some booths will sell new items for lower prices, including clothes, toys, accessories, toiletries, food, jewelry, plants, etc. Other booths sell their used goods that are set at amazing prices depending on the condition the item is currently in. You are able to find awesome vintage and historical items. Historical books and even war artifacts. You can also find old golfing materials. They often sell furniture and decorations. You can find shoes, clothes, anything you can think of! The swap meet has it for a great price. The cool thing about the swap meet is that you can come looking for a certain item and easily find it, but you can also come for your own enjoyment and know that you will leave with something that you saw that you thought was cool, without guilt.

The San Diego Swap Meet may be one place that you never thought of going to, but I would definitely recommend taking a day out of your week to check it out. You never know, maybe it’ll be something you love that becomes a weekly thing, but if not, you won’t regret going to see the great deals, the variety, and the history. Have you been to the swap meet already? What was the most interesting thing you’ve seen? I would love to know!
