"alert curiosity rewarded"

"The lesson of flea markets is that specific desire will be disappointed and alert curiosity rewarded."

--Joan Juliet Buck

I had never thought of a flea market that way but it makes total sense. One could also say the same about outlet stores.

It's almost like you need a secret shopping list that you don't state out loud, so that you will find one.

The corollary is: If you find your specific desire, it's never in your size.
