At Popsugar Home, our favorite spaces often incorporate a mix of modern and antique pieces. Even the sleekest contemporary room feels instantly warmer and less contrived when an antique is introduced.

With iPhones in hand, we, along with special guests and fellow antique enthusiasts, will be trolling some of our favorite weekend spots to share the best antique picks and tips all Summer long. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages to see which flea market we'll hit up next, or follow us on Instagram to check out all our flea market finds under the hashtag #fleafieldtrip.
