The earlier in the day you start, the more deals you’re likely to find. Ask store managers when they restock items. By shopping early and often, you are more likely to score the best items.
Just because a piece of furniture or an accent item is pretty doesn’t mean it’s in great condition. Always inspect items throughly before purchasing!
Most stores/booths are open to negotiation. Ask the store if they will take a reasonably lower price. In a lot of cases, a lower offer is accepted but you'll never know unless you ask.
Coming back later should never be in your vocabulary! It’s either buy something you love now or expect it to be gone when you come back. If it’s in your budget and you really love a piece, get it.
Worn leather, patina on copper, and chippy paint on architectural pieces are all examples of features that add character. Train your eye, and you’ll get better at recognizing items with true character.
