SELLING NEW VERSUS USED MERCHANDISE

Never mix new and used merchandise on your table.  Sell one or the other.  If you try and sell both at the same time, buyers will just bypass your table.  Buyers know what they want to purchase prior to visiting a flea market.  Some just buy used; some only want new.  Decide in advance what you will sell.  It takes planning and research and this equals profits.

KNOCK OFF MERCHANDISE

Stay away from all knock off merchandise!  Yes, you can purchase a lot of knock off merchandise for cheap.  Beware!  The authentic companies employ undercover people, US Marshalls, and local police departments to check flea markets for this kind of stuff and more so than ever before.  When you get caught, and you will, they will arrest YOU, confiscate YOUR merchandise, YOUR money, and YOUR truck.  There goes your profits!  And YOU go to court.  Is is worth it?  There are tons of deals to be had, spend the time to do your research and buy quality items that people need and want.
