When you think of the flea markets, think universal. There’s something for everyone and every type of shoppers. Not convinced? Join us as we explore all of the many different type of shoppers and explain why the markets are a perfect shopping destination for them.
They know what they’re looking for. They know the authentic from the fake. They do their research ahead of time. They know what questions they ask. They know what to look for. They’re nearly an expert although they may humbly consider themselves to be just a collector.
From comic books to baseball cards to vintage place settings there’s a collector for everything. The markets are a paradise to the collector because you’ll not only find something unique but you’ll probably have an interesting conversation with another collector too.
If you’re shopping for a collector, have a good idea of what they like. Do they like all vintage clothing or only from the 1950s? Do they look for European antiques or American antiques? Do they collect Marvel or DC comics? Get to know what they like or just bring them along and allow them to explore. One of the most exciting parts of collecting is the joy of the hunt and the reward of the find.
