If it's spring, it's time for vintage and antique markets. Some, like the 2014 Button Show and Sale, are a one time event with educational opportunities, while others, like A Paris Street Market, bring together artisans, local farmers and antique dealers once a month for fabulous shopping. Here's a list of not-to-be-missed favorites:
