Over at the {NewNew}, Kari of ikyoto.etsy.com just posted a great piece about How-To Find Foreign Thrift Stores & Flea Markets.

When I started planning my first trip to Italy this spring, the Wardrobe Refashion Challenge seemed like an excellent excuse to seek out ways to buy used and handmade garments as souvenirs. Thrift stores and flea markets are some of my favorite places to shop at home, and at first, finding these options abroad was proving challenging. I like to shop in smaller cities with an eye for bargains and an element of the hunt, but many of the shops whose information was available in English or had been blogged by foreign tourists seemed a little pricier and in major cities...I had trouble finding anything there to suit my taste until I discovered a few foreign language search tricks.
