Flea markets are my favorite places to be. The merchandise is always fun and interesting, and the people are fascinating. That said, most of us who love treasure-hunting can only get to it on the weekend. That’s why I launched “Flea Market Minute,” which injects a little dose of vintage fun into any day of the week.
For the first several episodes, we were at The Garage Flea Market in Chelsea, NYC, where I’ve been going for many years. In fact, the dealers there are really like family to me.
In the first episode, I compare flea markets to bars… Think about it. Both environments bring people together who share stories and laughs, and, if you play your cards right, you might find a treasure.
I also talk about the fact like larger items such as furniture and mirrors tend to be less expensive, and often get cheaper as the day goes on, because dealers don’t want to pack it up and take it home with them. Just like in bars…flea markets have pretty solid closing times, and as the saying goes “You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here.”
