One of the best things about shopping at flea markets is that you never know what you’re going to find. From priceless antiques to designer vintage clothing, to authentic artwork and jewelry there is something for everyone. Cradled within the nooks and crannies of the market there are unique one-of-a-kind merchandise and experiences to be found at the markets.

Be Open: Flea markets are a shoppers’ paradise! You never know what you’ll find. If you see something you like but not sure what it is or its purpose, don’t be afraid to ask. It might be exactly what you’re looking for

  1. Open mind: learn something new; there’s always an opportunity to learn something new even in the fields in which you have a great level of expertise.
  2. Open eyes: find something new or see something in a new way. Embrace alternative perspectives to expand your ideas and creative sensibility. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Ask a vendor that sells similar merchandise. They may be able to find it for you and bring it to the market next time.
  3. Open heart: experience something new or meet someone new. Open air markets have been known to be a great point of connection and fellowship. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or share a personal anecdote about an item you love.

Stay tuned for more tips each week on how you too can shop like a pro at the market!
