Vikon El Bazzar
Or otherwise known as the Vikon Village Flea Market. This is an indoor market not far from Hwy 635 (Jupiter off ramp). There are very few of these types of markets in this or surrounding areas other than your carpark trash and treasure type market. You walk in to this building and see several caged typed stalls.. lots of empty ones, then think ok well there isn’t much here, but then if you take an alternate direction, it takes you into another part of the building with many many more stalls. Aside from the usual second had type stuff and bags etc, I was amazed at the Egyptian collectibles and African wares including clothing for each. Not exactly what you expect in Texas.
Hours Fri – Sunday 10am-7pm.
Frys is a huge electronic store, there is one in Garland. The company originated in California by three brothers who wanted to provide a one-stop-shopping environment for the Hi-tech Professional. Each store has its own unique theme… The one in Garland adopts a Lazy-K ranch feel which is indicative of the cattle ranching history. As you enter this store you even get the sound effects of cattle… amazing.
Inside you will find anything you could possible want in relation to computer hardware and software products, technical books, I.C.'s, electronic components and accessories, audio, car audio, video, telecommunications, appliances and personal electronics, music CD's, DVD's, as well as convenience and general merchandise items. If you go with someone who is into all this stuff… be prepared for a long visit.
The Gathering Place
This store has lots of nooks and crannies within it selling anything from crafts, gifts, pictures, souvenirs, pieces of furniture and jewellery. Whatever you need to buy, you are sure to find something here.
Alstons Old Home Place
This seems from the outside to be a real mishmash of things but as in all these places, lots of treasures can be found inside.
