6. Impulse Buying
If you see one of those flea market finds that makes your heart skip a beat, snap it up if the price is right. If you love it that much, odds are someone else will too and you may spend the rest of your life wondering what could have been.
7. Watch Out for Fakes
Finally, we’ll say it again — don’t be duped by counterfeit flea market finds. The most common culprits are luxury handbags, watches, electronics and DVDs. When it comes to bags and watches, if the price is insanely low or there are several of the same item, it’s probably fake. If you’re searching for an investment bag, familiarize yourself with the details of the real thing and look for counterfeit giveaways like sloppy stitching, hardware that feels like plastic and patterns that don’t match up at the seems. A $10,000 bag costs that much because it is flawlessly made.
