Attending A Swap Meet, Garage Sales or Setting Up A Booth At A Flea Market Can Be Fun & Exciting!
What Is it about These type of bargan events?
On almost any given weekend across the country, someone is holding a garage sale, attending a swap meet or setting up a booth at a flea market. The quote someone's junk is someone else's treasure makes these events both plausible and plentiful.
Most of us are accumulators. We pack what we can into our house without regularly taking inventory until it's busting at the seams. Then it's time to decide what to keep, what to throw out and, more importantly, what to sell.
So many people spend their weekends out looking for bargains at these types of events and there are plenty of opportunities to make money. Much of it will be clear profit since there is virtually no overhead cost involved certainly not the same as in a retail shop.
Sale Sale Sale!
Your first garage sale can be to clean out your junk . Your subsequent sales can be for items you pick up at bargain prices at flea markets, swap meets and auctions, which you then turn around and sell out of your own garage. You can still give someone a bargain and make a profit on the merchandise turnover.
Why not you? If you ve ever had a garage sale, you must have realized the potential involved. All of these customers come to you simply because you put a small advertisement in the newspaper. People come for all kinds of reasons: a day out, a specific objective, or someone who likes browsing in search of that little unknown gem that might have great appeal.
What do people look for? Almost anything! Clothes, books, art, old records, furniture, pots and pans, a fishing pole you name it! Most people will buy at least one thing. They have that shopping itch! They want to be able to tell someone about the bargain they found! Garage sales are full of surprises for these people. It's not like going down to a K Mart or Sears where you know what the merchandise is and where it's located. Something that would be of no interest to you can be someone else's hobby!
