This past weekend, I went to a flea market in Washington, LA. There’s an old schoolhouse filled with antiques, and twice a year (April & October) they open up the grounds to other vendors. This was the busiest I’ve seen the place in the three times I’ve gone, most likely due to the breezy, sunny, beautiful weather.
No complaints here.
It’s a compilation of slightly overpriced antique furniture, garden decor, the finished products of many a Pinterest project, crap you’d find at a garage sale, old saws, china, dining room sets, old windows and doors, potted flowers, etc.
While it can get overwhelming with the wide range of quality and variety of things to sift through, if you look hard enough and have an idea of what you’re looking for, you can score some real gems and sometimes negotiate a better deal.
Here are some of the non-furniture items that peaked my interest:
Looking forward to more thrifted treasures and vintage finds in my future, and I’m working on some tips for what to shop for and how to incorporate those pieces into your wardrobe without looking like you are stuck in the past.
If you have any recommendations on where to shop, feel free to share in the comments section!
