As winter approaches,  you will need to keep your hands busy while you’re stuck indoors, preferably with bargain projects. It’s the only way to beat cabin fever. We had it once. You don’t want it.


During those long winter nights, it’s not a bad idea to have some fun up-cycling projects. Need ideas? Take a look at the thrifty artwork we did a while back. Or try something like refreshing a guest room with vintage decor.  All items you can find easily at a local flea market.

Thankfully, it is not too late to hit up local flea markets. Stock up on some fun, old, in-need-of-love bargain items that can make all the difference in your home decor.

We’ve been planning our own trips to local flea markets and stocking up on winter projects. We’ve also been working on something special for you all as a thank you for all the great feedback from our Must-See Vintage Flea Markets list we published last year. We hope this is something you can use while you plan your flea market trips!

It’s coming together well, but we (with the help of Latitude Mapping Solutions LLC) are putting the finishing touches on it before fully releasing it. Because we love you, here’s a teaser of what’s to come!
