20+ Lucky People Who Found Something Extraordinary at a Flea Market

Beautiful, stylish, and designer items are often really costly. And while some people spend a fortune on them, others just go to flea markets or thrift stores and find real treasures for mere pennies.

“Blue caged bubble glass from an estate sale. Love a good blue glass haul!”

“I found this at an antique shop for $1 today. It’s a light blue Tahitian pearl set in 14K yellow gold.”

“The original retail price is $528.”

“My friends all thought I was crazy when I decided to buy my wedding dress at a thrift store.”

“I bought it for $80, and it had $1,500 tags on it.”

“My uncle, an art dealer, bought what he thought was an Andy Warhol poster at a thrift store for $20.”

“He thought it was a poster print, but when he was able to inspect it at home, he found it is in fact an original screen printing. This work is an early Warhol from the mid ’50s. That and the fact that it is Americana means this would probably sell for at least $250K at a reputable auction house.”
