Searching for gems at a flea market can feel pretty overwhelming, so why not enlist the help of your significant other and make a fun date of it? Set a spending limit — you can even start with $5 — and see what treasures you find at that price. Along the way, you'll have a great time talking about quirky items or meeting interesting vendors. If there aren't any flea markets in your area, then do the same with neighborhood yard sales. You can also bring a little friendly competition into the date by parting ways with the same amount of money and reuniting later to see who discovered the best finds.
