The holidays are such a fun time to do some exploring. Between all the decorations, holiday preparations, and consumers everywhere just aching to get out of their homes for a few hours, it’s a great time of the year to be a part of as many festivals as possible and sell your treasures.
Many flea markets are still open and doing very well, but if you’re looking for a little extra holiday pizazz to sell your antiques and collectibles, American Merchandiser has come up with a list of five top antique and collectible markets for this season of giving.
