Flea Market Without the Fleas
Looking for treasure? Check out Jayson Home & Garden’s online flea market.
The Chicago-based furniture shop carries new and antique pieces, but the online auction is just for one-of-a-kind vintage gems. Categories include seating, tables, cabinets, mirrors, textiles, rugs, lighting, and "curiosities," a catch-all section for conversation starters like 20th century opera hats, wicker demijohns, and, of course, the stuffed-and-mounted peacock.
Prices range from $2.50 for a Belgian butter cup to nearly $10,000 for a 19th century gilt settee. The flea market lasts until the goods are gone.
