Some say it is a bit overpriced, and you will definitely pay a premium on some items. But you can also find some lovely bargains, so don’t write it off if you’re afraid you won’t find anything in your price range. You can find some beautifully restored antiques, furniture, and salvage items.

As well as lovely little tchotchkes and household items.
I love the green clock on the table and was tempted to get it.
To go with my green granite countertop you must be sick of seeing.
I do, however, get accessories and jewelry. Speaking of which…
I bought these two lovely hats. One is a pleated navy and one is black straw. Be on the lookout when buying hats for matching hat pins included – sometimes they’re tucked away and hard to find in the hat. The navy one included two lovely blue velvet hat pins. I also bought another 50s parasol – for $5 how could I not get it – they’re great for walking through flea markets with, even if you are wont to stab people with them.
I really must get a lovely mannequin head to display my treasures on.
