Warning: even if you're in shape, the flea market can feel like a marathon. I'm not saying you should wear an old pair of sweats, but do dress comfortably. Even in flats, my back began to hurt toward the end. I also carried a large tote with an extra tote folded inside. Lastly, don't forget the sunscreen and sunglasses — I was guilty of a sunburn that unfortunately never turned into a tan . . .
