Flea markets in New York City: 5 must-shops

Flea markets in New York City may not offer as many super-cheap finds as elsewhere, but bargains can still be had. A large part of the fun is people-watching: coffee and doughnut in hand, all manner of shoppers make their way through aisles piled high with oddities, which may have to be picked up to reveal a treasure underneath. Haggling is par for the course -- there's more stuff around the next corner. Remember: Many vendors accept cash only. --TED LOOS
