a market where old or used goods are sold cheaply
You wouldn't believe the deal I got at the flea market this morning! The seller was asking 40 bucks but I got him down to $15.
a discovery of something valuable
So what kind of find did you get? It’s a well-designed tool box. And the best part was the best-in-class chisels and wrenches stashed in the drawers!
things that are considered useless or of little value
Lucky you. Personally, I find there’s too much junk at these places. I know one man's trash can be another man's gold but flea markets aren’t for me.
household items set out for purchase in the garage or yard of someone's home
I love yard sales though. Last week I walked by one and saw an almost new coffee maker on their table. Perfect since mine had just stopped working.
put items in the garbage
throw things out
I agree yard sales are great. Other people can use what you don’t want any more. Why throw things out when you can 'upcycle' them!
a collectible item such as furniture, dishes, jewelry, or art that has a high value
Speaking about repurposing old stuff, do you like antique shows? Sure, as long as they have a decent number of actual antiques for sale.
to remember past experiences with pleasure
I love antiques, they remind me of my Grandma. It's fun to reminisce about the crazy times we had in her old living room!
