I am amazed at the popularity of flea markets and junk sales. In my part of the country, thrift stores and garage sales are my primary source of used and vintage decorating items. I love reading about the great finds that people find at flea markets Here is a great pic from Country Living Magazine. Please visit Country Living
Country Living They have a great article on the Haupt Antiek Market.

Visit the Haupt Antiek Market for show dates and information.

Should it stay or should it go? That is always the question when it is garage sale time. For me it is always to emotional roller coaster ride. I love this stuff, but it is just that, "stuff" I have printed my labels and not it is time to start marking the items for sale.

Hope you will find this useful. This is a website that helps you track garage sales in your area. Not only can you find garage sales, you can post about your garage sale. There are some posts with helpful hints for having a successful garage sale of your own. This site was interesting to visit and I picked up a few extra ideas that I will implement on my moving sale. Also while you are there checkout the coupons for extra savings when you are shopping at a retailer. Good luck and leave them a note to let them know you read about their site on my blog. Go Green go to a Garage Sale.

We still have snow outside and it is so cold. Occasionally the sun peeks out just long enough to tease us about spring. Spring weekends are often spent shopping at garage sales. I love looking for great bargains! At the end of the day looking over my treasures is a fun part of the weekend.
I am personally holding a garage sale next weekend. Wish me luck as I take on the big job of cleaning out the garage.

It never ceases to amaze me of all of the wonderful ideas people have using flea market finds. There is a certain feeling that things give when they are worn with time and use. I believe it to be a feeling of familiarity and comfort. I think oft times these items add a soothing sense that though time continues to move, we can go with it and still have real value.
I like to post about some of my favorite books and places to shop for vintage finds. Before we know it, it will be time for the first garage sales of the year and the flea markets will be bursting with items to be discovered. Leave me a comment and let me know where you look for your finds. Together we will build a guide so that it can be shared with our friends who like to wander though those timeless treasures.
