Find Your Flea Market Confidence

Antiquing is not a spectator sport. When you’re out there at a flea market, it’s always important to be on your feet, eyes wide open, and poised to find your new favorite statement piece – so you can snag it before someone else does.


But there’s one part that regularly stumps even seasoned shoppers: how to bargain confidently and respectfully.


Luckily Nate shared his go-to line with Paper Magazine:


“Is this price firm?”

If they seem open to negotiation, proceed with: “what is the absolute best price you can sell this for?”
