Rummaging through your grandmother’s attic, or sifting through a garage sale can be a thrill when you find old treasures. This weekend, make a date night out of it by visiting thrift stores and flea markets with your special someone.

Find excitement by treasure hunting as a couple!

Try sorting through forgotten artwork, jewelry and furniture to find the perfect addition to your life. Vintage clothing can be resold online if your findings don’t match your own particular needs. Always check the latest fashion trends to see if you can still pull off the vintage look!

Driving through town and stopping at garage sales is another great way to hunt for used items!  Garage sales have the added benefit of allowing you and your sweetheart to speak with an item’s owner. This gives you the opportunity to discover the history of an object before purchasing it.

Keep an eye out for neighbors replacing older furniture or preparing for a move! They are much more likely to bargain price since they need to get rid of their items quickly.
