Georgetown Flea Market

Down the East Coast is the Georgetown Flea Market in Washington, D.C.

The flea market is open every Sunday with exceptions for weather. It’s so popular that it even inspired the novel Cadillac Jack by Larry McMurtry, who owned a bookshop in Georgetown.

Mile High Flea Market

The Mile High Flea Market in Denver, CO, is every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, making it a little less exclusive than some flea markets in the U.S.

But the extra days give shoppers more time to look for special sales. It also gives everyday vendors the ability to show off their wares.

Bottom line

Myst/Adobe vintage brass knight trinkets

Flea markets can be a unique option if you’re trying to get ahead financially by reducing your spending.

The markets allow you to still get items with extra character or special vibes without paying excessive amounts.

But it’s still a good idea to go in with an estimated budget so you don’t overspend on too many distinctive finds.
