If you can stand the smell of hot dogs, sauerkraut, and old people, swap meets are great places to find unique and vintage pieces to refurbish, repurpose, or simply display. The Long Beach Antique Swap Meet, held the third Sunday of every month is one of my favorite places to get inspired. There are over 800 dealers and most of them will give you bargain prices. Even if you don’t purchase anything, it’s a place where I like to browse and get new ideas for future projects.
