Flea Market Tips - Part 2


When planning a trip or day of flea marketing make sure that you plan ahead. If you plan on going to several markets or a market that you have never been to before map it out...you would hate to not make it because you couldn't find the destination!

Measure you space and write it down! This is essential for getting a piece that will fit.

Make sure to bring cash and your ATM / credit card. Most vendors now use portable card readers so can use your plastic.

Bring a large bag to carrier it all. Places like The Alameda Flea Market have carts for larger items, but don't count on being able to get one. Ask the vendor if they can hold larger items so you don't have to make multiple trips to the car / truck.

Look at everything you never know what might be hiding or might be found on the next row.


Happy fleaing
