You know that unwanted household item you sold for a quarter at your last garage sale? Go get it back. Spend a weekend browsing the stalls of San Antonio's Southside markets. There you'll find the city's garage sale bounty; the occasional vintage or antique treasure; random finds like tires and rims; wares handcrafted by Latino artisans; and a good amount of unlicensed knock-offs. Thousands of vendors open up shop each weekend at markets like Trader's Village, Mission Flea Market and Flea Mart. Each can be found on the southern edge of Loop 410. Trader's Village, 9333 SW Loop 410, (210) 623-8383, tradersvillage.com/san-antonio; Mission Flea Market, 707 Moursund Blvd., (210) 923-8131, missionopenairmarket.com; Flea Mart, 12280 Poteet Jourdanton Fwy., (210) 624-2666, fleamarketsanantonio.com
