4. Go Vintage
One of the best ways to get a great deal and avoid fakes is by sticking to vintage items. It’s easy to get swept up in the piles of t-shirts and tube socks or electronics and watches at rock-bottom prices but you get what you pay for and you can find those things anywhere.

5. Make Friends
If you see a vendor with tons of stuff that you love, stop and chat. If they’re local, they may have booths at other places or a secret stash for VIP customers. And if you’re looking for something specific, they can keep an eye out at their secret sources.
