Let’s face it, browsing tag sales and flea markets is not always the most glamorous pastime but sometimes the last thing you might expect is to find is a celebrity shopping there! Whether hosting a sale for charity or on the road and taking a detour in search of some new flair for their home or wardrobe, many celebrities love tag sales! From California’s Rose Bowl Flea Market to Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market, many Hollywood Stars from all walks of life can be seen shopping for collectibles, antiques or vintage clothing and jewelry.
In the spring of 2008, Pamela Anderson hosted a huge tag sale one weekend to clear items from her rented home in Malibu. The sale included an eclectic assortment of items from in and around her home and all proceeds were donated to the animal rights group PETA. Good work girl!
Actors and Actresses aren’t just talented on stage. Take Emily Procter, a star on the hit show CSI: Miami who plays Calleigh Duquesne, a bilingual ballistics expert. Off stage she has a passion for going to garage sales, flea markets and antiquing and admits her favorite part is getting the bargain. Emily also shares her advice that knowledge is power when shopping at yard sales and she recommends that you buy what will make you happy.
Now you need to keep both eyes open, one for the treasures at the sale and one for a possible celebrity sighting!
