A Holiday Guide to Sample Sales, Flea Markets and Fairs
So the holiday season is almost over, but there are still plenty of places to get some cool stuff at sweet prices. Perusing different websites, emails, fliers, etc.,Â it gets pretty overwhelming trying to filter out the good and seriously, most of us aren’t going to sit down and create a spread sheet of sample sales. Luckily, I am not most, and willing to create the ultimate list, short but sweet-complete altruism right here.
