Bargains Are Waiting To Be Found At Flea Markets I love to spend hours looking at flea markets
for different items. Different vendors set up their products in
a central location so that consumers can spend their time walking around and see the new
and used items available for sale. You never know what you will come across at
a flea market. There are plenty of new and used items as
well as home made crafts and clothing to choose from. To help make your day at the flea market the
best it can be planned for the day. Most flea markets are outdoors so you may
want some sunscreen and a hat. Others are inside so make sure you find out
ahead of time. You don’t want to spend the day carrying
around the items you purchased so make sure you take along a bag or a cart. There are some very inexpensive carts that
fold up and fit into the trunk of your car. Make sure you wear good walking shoes too
so you won’t have to end your day early due to tired feet. A good tip, if you do get tired walking, is
to walk to the very end of the vendors and work your way forward. This way you will have the heaviest load from
items you have purchased when you are nearest your vehicle. Keep in mind that most people start at the
entrance of the flea market so if you start at the back you will be able to see many items
before too many other people do. Most flea markets are offered on the weekends
but some of them do take place on weekdays as well. The number of other people looking around
is generally lower during the week but then so is the number of vendors. It is really a toss up about when is the best
time of day to make a deal at a flea market. It is perfectly acceptable to try to get the
price lowered down from what the vendor is asking for. By going to a flea market first thing in the
morning you are likely to be able to take advantage of the selection before everyone
else has. This is the best solution if there are particular
items you are interested in finding. Yet many people claim they have a harder time
getting the seller to negotiate the prices when they purchase early in the morning. By the end of the day though, most vendors
are very willing to lower the prices on the items they have remaining. They definitely don’t want to have to pack
up any more stuff at the end of the day than they absolutely have to. If you have a particular item in mind and
you can wait until the end of the day you will get a better price. You also run the risk of someone else snatching
it up though if it is a one of a kind item. There are different ways to negotiate the
price of any given item. You can ask the vendor what the lowest price
is that they will take for a given item. You can also offer to pay a certain price
and see if they will take you up on the offer. If you want to offer $10 then have that money
in your hand for them to see. Seeing the money will often entice them to
take the money. I have found it is always worth my time to
look around though because I may find the vendor in the next aisle has the same item
for $10 or less. If I am going to go back to check on an item
with a particular vendor I write down their location because by the end of the day it
can be difficult to remember who is located where. This video has been made in the ever easy
