That was really a long day..............

This topic does not really fit in either Flea Market or Yard sales. But I feel it is more closer to Flea Market.

Anyway, went to that rummage sale today. From 6:30 till 2:00. Selling from 8am - 1pm (wish they would of let us stay longer). Paid $20 for two spots. I made my money back on that plus a profit of $60. Lol, I got more traffic at my house on my first two yard sales than I did at the rummage sale today. However most of the traffic today was looky-loos. Did not buy from anyone. Alot of us that made money made it off each other. Vendors buying from Vendors. Hell I even bought from some vendors, my daughter wanted a kite and some designer thing, which I got both for $4.00. But I also bought 5 Books for $5.50 to resell. As well as bought 8 DVDs for $10.00 again for resell.

So it was a long long long drawn out day, not making much money. Two of my buddies were there so it past the time by, and we are all going to setup shop in a vacant lot next Saturday that gets a hell of a lot of traffic.

I think we all have better things to do than sit around at a yard sale, flea market or rummage sale but sounds like you got the right idea. Get a buddy or two to go along, have some drinks , have some food, have some fun while your making some money.

I love our outdoor flea market. Great Mexican food, they sell beer as well. If a buddy comes along were sitting arond outside having a few beers probably not all that different than whatever else I'd be doing otherwise. Plus if I get a good spot along the edges where I got some space I normally will take my bags out of my trunk and play some bags as well while we wait for customers.

Its the same here with all our outside flea markets. Great food, beer, just so damn expensive, mmmmm, wonder if they will let me bring my own beer as a vendor (not to sale of course)
