Flea Market Finds For Everyone: The Browser

Chelsea Flea Market

There are those times when you just want to go shopping just for the sake of shopping, with nothing in particular in mind. You go to browse, and see what you might find along the way.

A browser: a shopper that shops with no particular item in mind; seeks to explore and see what they can find.

Why are the flea markets such a great shopping destination for the browser?

1.)    Variety: One of the best parts about the markets is that you’ll rarely see the same item twice. Each item is unique and has a story, message and history.

2.)    Environment: Flea markets naturally cultivate the perfect shopping experience for the browser in that it’s all about a “come and see what you can find” mantra.

3.)    Fellow shoppers: As a browser, you’ll be sure to stumble upon other browsers at the market. They might share a similar interest and be able to give you some great insight into making the most of your browsing trips.

Hint: Often times it’s in those casual moments when you’re not searching for anything in particular that you find the most wonderful treasures. These moments of inspiration often occur when you’re simply browsing.
