Description

Geraldine James, is a true flea marketing expert. She begins with the 10 Golden Rules (from arriving early and knowing how to work the stalls to training your eye to spot treasures amongst the rubbish). The following chapters on china and glass, textiles, furniture, metal, art, jewellery and gardens explain what to buy, what to ignore, how to clean and repair and when to call in the services of a restoration expert. There's advice on how to display your finds and how to build a collection. Finally, there is a detailed directory of Geraldine's favourite flea markets, from Round Top in Texas and Los Angeles' Rose Bowl, to the markets of Paris and the south of France and the country towns of England. Vintage, retro, unusual, quirky and one-of-a-kind - all these words perfectly describe the bounty to be found at a flea market.
