Saturdays Are Fun: Flea Market Finds

Social Media Team

Julie Ann Shahin, Social Media Team

When Tangie told me she wanted to include Vintage Finds on the blog, I was ecstatic as I love to go thrifting! I could spend all day going to flea markets, antique stores, garage sales, and thrift stores until my feet ached and my body wouldn’t let me take another step! Can you imagine my joy when a 7-day indoor flea market opened within a mile of  my home, and it keeps expanding? !!! Just yesterday I bought 3 vintage spoons for $1 each that I use with my glitter.

I thought we’d take this time today to go Flea Market Thrifting around the world, courtesy of Pinterest. Let’s take a look at some of the exciting finds and vintage goodies:

When I want to go to a flea market, and want to know of any new flea markets in the area, I go to Craigslist’s, chose events, and enter “flea market” in the search box. There is also this directory of U.S. Flea Markets, and here’s a map to the Paris Flea Market below.
