Even though I've lived in Lansing for more than a decade, I'm still finding new things and places that I haven't tried or haven't been to yet.

Cue The Mega Mall.

The Mega Mall; Michigan's Most Unique Shopping Experience

Have you ever been inside Lansing's Mega Mall? Just hearing the name, Mega Mall, you might be thinking of department stores and food courts. But no. Lansing's Mega Mall is essentially like a giant antique store, flea market, and swap meet all rolled into one. And, it's open all year long.

My husband planned a super fun day of antiquing and lunch for us, and the first stop was the Mega Mall.

The brown-bricked building looks a little unassuming from the outside, but the inside is a whole other story.

Antiques, Collectibles, and More

The Mega Mall is huge, we're talking 40,000 square feet huge. And the numerous aisles are packed with antiques, jewelry, furniture, books, old records, and tons of collectibles, like Hot Wheels, playing cards, Pyrex, and plenty more.

We spent over two hours walking up and down those aisles looking at all the fun and unique treasures, and we probably only saw a portion of what's there.

We ended up purchasing an old Eagles album we found to add to our collection. It plays perfectly.

I'd say that the Mega Mall is one of those places that you have to go to at least once. It's not only a Lansing "experience", but I'd say that it's a Michigan experience as well. I mean heck, it's featured on the Pure Michigan website.
