Flea Market Décor
When it comes to thoughtful, colorful old-time finds for her home, Stacy truly believes that antiquing requires plenty of patience and time. As fun as it is to quickly scour shops for the perfect piece, she thinks thrifting really should be a waiting game.
“It has to happen organically,” she says. “Don’t rush the process. Check out local flea markets, estate sales, garage sales and thrift stores. Keep in mind that you’ll hit multiple stops that are a bust, but eventually you’ll hit the one where you feel like you struck gold.” If you’re short on time and you just need that special item, she recommends sifting through curated vintage boutiques. She says, “If your budget allows, check out boutique shops, many of which have an online store too. They have taken the time to curate their best finds and have done all the hard work for you.”
