  1. Ah I was about to say, there’s nothing wrong with bootleg items if they look exactly the same and the price is right! Of course I’d love to have the real thing, but sometimes it’s just not affordable so a knockoff is a fine alternative as long as its decent quality.

  2. I love this. We have a flea market near us and I swear they are ALL shady there. It’s good to know what to look out for.

  3. Thanks so much for sharing this. I’ve been on the receiving end of a bad deal, and it is NOT fun. You have to be careful!

  4. Flea Markets are so fun. I especially like the booths that are a bit messy and full of random stuff… can do a little digging and find treasures lol.

  5. I haven’t shopped at a flea market in a while, but you can find some great deals there. You definitely have to watch out for bad vendors though.

  6. I haven’t been in a flea market for some time now. These are very good tips and we could all learn from this! I think it’s important to follow your instinct as well, if you feel like you can’t trust the vendor then better not buy stuff from him.

  7. Great tips. I haven’t been to a flea market in such a long time. There is one close by my house that I hear is amazing on Sunday’s so I want to check it out. These tips will come in handy!
