Local flea markets are a great place to find vintage wares ripe for refinishing. These old metal tiles were a great find from the Fremont flea market, and made wonderful Christmas gifts! The secret to a satisfying flea market shopping experience is simple: Snatch that stuff up before another craftin’ bitch grabs it! If it catches your eye, pick it up. Walk around with it like you’re trying a new pair of shoes, and see how it feels. If your brain is exploding from a creative surge as you hold that item, it’s meant to be – haggle that price down and begin refinishing your new masterpiece.
