It is easy to put in a lot of money when designing a room. Custom furniture and imported artwork can create a beautiful space, but is not entirely necessary. Bargain hunting can be both fun and rewarding. Finding the perfect treasure at a flea market can keep your budget happy while still providing the look and feel you want. In Los Angeles, we are surrounded by great flea markets. The Rose Bowl Flea Market, open the second sunday of every month, is a fantastic place to look for unique finds. Having been open for over 40 years and with over 2,500 vendors, you’re bound to find something!
Bargain hunting is not limited to flea markets. Vintage stores are also a great way to find a good deal on beautiful items. With vintage stores, it may take time to discover which ones are fairly priced, and which are more of a collectors boutique. This just takes time, and getting to know the local stores in your area. Antiques add character to your design, but it can be difficult to find a good vintage store stocked with furniture. To solve this, antiques can often be found at garage sales and swap meets. One of a kind pieces are worth the effort, and saving money is just a bonus.
