How do you "bark" as a seller or vendor at flea markets and swap meets?
How do these vendors command top dollar for their items, while others who come to the same event are less successful? I put a low price on an item which would have been a bargain at twice that price, and I had people scoff and say how high it was, while my neighbor at the sale was vending broken junk right and left for exorbitant amounts, and the buyers were glad to pay it! They practically fought each other to purchase his items. What gives? I'd like to know his secret.
After selling at these types of markets for years, what I found was that it pays to have good presentation, and to specialise in something rather than have a bit of everything.
Also get your friends to come around your stall and act like customers - People will be attracted to busy stalls rather than empty ones!
I sold at shows for years and I also run carnival games. Talk to every person that comes by, keep talking even if they don't stop. People are curious and will want to know what you are talking about. Good Luck.
There is money to be made at your local flea market, but it is not as easy as setting up a table and hoping that your junk is someone's treasure and that this hypothetical someone just happens to be passing by. Let's take a look at the different types of sellers you will find when visiting your local flea market. read more
