Before pricing an item for resale, it is important that you know your true cost of that item.  To calculate true cost, add your shipping costs to your purchase.  Cost of purchase plus shipping costs divided by the amount of items you purchased).  This is the true cost of your purchase.  Can you sell the item 40-80% cheaper than a brick and mortar store front?  If you can, you have a winner to sell at the flea market.  You are then offering a true bargain.  Buyers will realize this which equals more sales for you.  This is word of mouth advertising from your buyers.  It’s great and it’s FREE.
