Flea markets began in medieval England, where merchants would sell their wares directly to townspeople in search of new wheelbarrows or old VHS cassettes. Uncover hidden gems with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get an indoor pop-up package for two (a $40 value) at Treasure Island Flea, valid on January 28 or 29, February 25 or 26, or March 24 or 25.

- Admission for two (a $3 value each)

Located inside the only useable building remaining from the 1939 San Francisco World’s Fair, Treasure Island Flea busies shoppers with a miscellany of constantly changing goods, such as handmade bags, recycled furniture, and pinball machines. The modern-day bazaar opens out before twosomes, where a sea of local exhibitors vie for attention with a host of hand-made baubles, jewelry, antiques, and vintage electronics. In between browsing, duos can refuel with a chef’s choice dish from one of the rotating specialty food purveyors and strike terror into the hearts of nearby grapes with two glasses of Ask Alice rose wine, bottled by The Winery SF. To extend the oenophilic excursion, The Winery SF will host a tasting where guests can sample four varietals from a wine flight while absorbing scenic views from the surrounding bay. Patrons can apply the $2 voucher toward any bottle, setting the scene for a romantic night in or a successful gravy-boat christening.
