Shop with a Discerning Eye

When shopping at flea markets its easy to get caught up in a buying frenzy-yep I have many times.

Take a moment and step back - look for color and character first. Will it accent or fit in with what I already have.

Dont be afraid to ask the vendor questions about repairs and restorations or where the item came from

See possibilities- how would it look painted another color !

Look for other uses for items- how could I use this as a container, for storage, in a different way ?

Have fun just remember a bargain is never a bargain if you never use it !
