Well, I did the 5 hours selling, the 3 hours setup and take down and the one month of pricing off an on and boxing. That is a lot of hauling of boxes. The flea market needed to be better advertised - my costs were covered and that was about it. But, I did learn; don't bring mugs, don't put anything on the floor if you want it to sell, don't bring so much stuff, things I think are great and vintage aren't what the buyer's at this flea market were interested in. The big yellow advertising Pennzoil plastic container sold, a sunbonnet girl quilt sold and a folding screen sold, all at cost, but a least I am no longer storing them. The rest of the sales were things like muffin pans, Pyrex casseroles, paperbacks, some hard cover craft and collectible price guides (at $1 each - a real bargain). So I came home with less stuff to pack away and a better appreciation about what that venue at that area of town brings in for customers (retired, downsizing types, sweet, lovely to visit with). The people who bought the most were other sellers who obviously know buyers as they resold most of the same stuff from their own tables, a very quick flip.
|One guy wanted it - no one else had the room|
|Screen - lots of interest|
|Under table stuff no movement|
|Pyrex casseroles sold, nothing else that shows on the table here|
|My favorite collectible stuff - only one sifter, a few muffin pans and a couple of flippers sold|
