Give a Kitchen Character With Flea Market Finds

The kitchen can easily be a room that's all about function — stock cabinets and fixtures don't offer a lot of character. Inject your personal style with vintage finds and durable furniture from flea markets and estate sales.

Shop Like a Pro

Flea markets and antique fairs can be overwhelming, so it's a good idea to show up prepared. Make a wish list with measurements for any furniture or rugs before the event, bring cash, prepare for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. When shopping for furniture, bring a tape measure so you'll be sure that it will fit in your space. Also, have a plan for transporting the furniture home, since most vendors will expect you to take it with you that day. Most prices at markets and fairs are negotiable, but be polite when asking for a better price; a vendor is not going to give a bargain if he or she feels insulted.
