That is great Fred.  I don't find much re-sell stuff in trash/dumpsters but I do scrap a bunch from it.  I check every dumpster when at the auctions.  Is amazing what you can find if someone just cleaned out their unit or was moving and couldn't take it all.

Forcast was cloudy with a 30% chance of rain (thunderstorms) but it didn't end up raining. Still, people were scared off, and it was a slow day. Ended up with $48 in profit. Less than what I've been averaging, but oh well.

We had the same type of forcast, but it did rain that morning.  Rest of day was nice Sunday.  I took a break from flea to get house work done.  Next weekend is the flea again for me.  Same type forcast however as this weekend.  Mid 80s with a 30% chance of T-storms.

$48 isn't much but better then nothing.  Just sucks you spent how many hours out there selling.  Not counting the packing/un-packing.  Better luck this weekend Shmoopy.

Saturday forecast for my area was 30% chance with rain coming in around 9 a.m.

Got there at 5:45 as usual; if reserved people aren't signed in by 6 their spots are sold to daily vendors.

Maybe 1/3 of regulars were there with others either scared off or just decided to take the opportunity to take the day off.

I "shopped" the few who were actually setting up and while I usually start setting up at 7, I didn't get started until 8...latest ever I have done that.

AND...the day turned out good. No rain and with fewer vendors more money came the way of those who DID sell. Can't complain about that.
