    It never occured to me to check garage sales for fragrances. I will definitely be keeping that in mind. Great finds!

    You'd be surprised what you can find. If I knew anything about women's scents I'd probably have a larger vintage collection but so far I'm just looking for fragrances for myself.

    Some very worthwhile surprises can be found not only at garage sales but also at flea markets.

    Online estate sales rock. I just picked up 6 minis including Furyo and Antaeus for $24.

    I have a fairly large flea market right down the road from me I am now considering checking out. Would you say there is any higher instance of fraudulent bottles there? It just seems to me that would be an easy place to get away with it.

    One point of caution about flea markets: I have seen sellers with fragrance bottles baking in the sun. Testing is essential. Damage to the fragrance could be a price bargaining point.
