I rarely get to watch tv and the few times that I do, it is when we visit my in-laws as the kids occupy themselves with the grandparents and their Chihuahua. Sometimes, I even get in a nap but more often, I get to peruse the TV channels and watch HG-TV.
One of my favorite shows is called Flea Market Flip, a show where there are 2 teams at an Antique Show and Flea Market with a budget of $500. They are to find the items, make something of it, and sell with the intent of a profit. The team with the most profit from flipping, wins the cash prize.
This weekend, Southwest’s Most Popular Vintage Market returns to San Diego, featuring one of a kind items I would see on my favorite show. San Diego will be hosting for the second year the Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market. There will be no gameshow of flipping or teams competing for a cash prize, but what you will see are ready-for-purchase handmade items for you or your home.
Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market attracts tens of thousands of shoppers twice a year to their home events in Scottsdale, Ariz. Known for careful selection of quality exhibitors, selling unique treasures and inspiring design, the market is sure to be a popular attraction for San Diego-area vintage enthusiasts. All things chippy, rusty, vintage and handmade will be on display in inspiring booths. Also find live music, delicious food, drinks, photo ops and infinite amounts of design inspiration. “It will be a really fun event for families, friends, or a day-date with your significant other,” said Lindsey Holt, Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market, co-founder and owner.
When: July 15 and 16, 2017
Where: 2875 Dewey Rd. in Point Loma, San Diego, CA 92106 (Liberty Station)
