Deciding What Items You Should Sell
Aside from the size crowd, you can expect, flea markets, swap meets, and garage sales have something in common. Garage sale type items account for a part of the merchandise being sold at a swap meet, but homemade crafts and new merchandise are also widely available.
Many vendors purchase new products at below wholesale prices, and make huge profits. Those who have gone through the initiation process report earnings of up to $5,000 per weekend and more.
The key to successful flea market sales is to display attractive, interesting, impulse buying merchandise at attractive prices.
In addition, mixing second-hand pieces with new or more common items that sell well can be quite a challenge. However, once you get a feel for what people expect, and fill that niche in the market, you will be on your way to making more money in a single day than you ever thought possible.How to Attract Thousands of Buyers to Your Garage Sale
There are hundreds, or in the case of the larger meets, even thousands of vendors who set up to sell their merchandise
at flea markets.
If you want to get the attention, and keep it, of everyone from those who showed up with flashlights to those entire families who came dressed up from church to browse, you must somehow stand out from the others.
Strategy is everything. For example, experienced shoppers usually make a reconnaissance tour along the outside circle of a flea market, knowing that the less experienced dealers are there. Then they slowly work their way inward to the more heavily trafficked middle section.
It also helps to know a little about the "history" of items that are antique, collectibles, or
can otherwise become a conversation piece. If an item has a history, it's automatically worth more money.
Don't be afraid to talk to people who stop at your space to browse. From a shopper's point of view, take this note with you. One of the great delights of flea markets is the conversation. You'll monetize
well through it.
People are attracted to dealers who are storytellers, loaded with fascinating information about the items they have for sale.
And be a conspirator. If your customer has gotten a great bargain, let them know.
Setting up a canopy will not only give your space a professional store-like appearance, it will also give you protection from the hot sun or rain.
After setting up your tables arrange your wares and display merchandise in an organized manner. Remember, a junked-up messy area can take away from the value of some items. It can also cause people to start tripping all over the place.
