Comfortable shoes and several layers of clothing are a must. You’ll be walking for a long time and will need the support for your feet. Carry a windbreaker you can easily take off, as well as a tee shirt and sweatshirt to help you adjust to changing weather. Don’t forget the sunscreen and a hat to protect you from the sun.
In addition, a pull cart or recyclable shopping bag will save you from trekking back to the car with your purchases. Don’t forget to measure various areas of your house to make sure any furniture you buy will fit. Most of all bring plenty of cash (with lots of smaller bills), as most vendors won’t accept checks or credit cards.
