Some of her tips for rummaging at flea and antique markets include:

- Wear sensible shoes – there’s  a lot of walking involved.

- Take a big bag – or a series of bags.

- Don’t bargain too hard – if you are too pushy the sellers will loose interest.

- When abroad – arrange your shipper in advance
