It used to be that many people were ashamed to shop at flea markets. If you are one of those people, then maybe it is time to rethink your opinion. Flea markets are great way to have fun and find something you may like. Here are a few other things to take into consideration when shopping at flea markets:
» Flea markets can get busy and challenging, but that is what exactly makes the moment so special when you find that one unique piece that you just have to take home.
» In a world of mass-produced furniture and decorations, flea markets are one of the few remaining places where rare and unexpected antiques can be found.
» While there are rare antiques at flea markets, they are also rare to find. Mostly, there will be quite some (dare we say) junk that someone is trying to sell. Therefore, it takes a great deal of patience to sift through everything to find exactly what you are looking for.
» Grouping several flea market finds will make your room seem authentic, unique, eclectic, and give it a sense of history. Who knows, maybe you can find an old map at the flea market - your friends will think you are quite the traveler.
Overall, flea markets are a ton of fun. If you have that one room that needs to be decorated, then maybe it is time to head out to your local flea market and shop for some unique pieces. To get you started, here is a color family that may inspire your next "flea market" design:
