Show your wares at the flea market

March 13, 2012 by  

The next Friendly Frank’s Flea Market will take place at the Jackson Fairgrounds Park from March 30-April 1. Admission is $3 per person.

Friendly Frank’s Flea Market is held on the 1st weekend of every month. Over 200 vendors show up at each show. In order to sell at the market vendors need permits which can be purchased at the flea market. Rental of inside space is $73, pavilion space is $65 and outside space is $40; vendors can bring their own tables or rent them for $7 each.

Many people are finding a second career in being flea market vendors. They sell a variety of items such as homemade crafts, original art, handmaid clothing, housewares and collectables. Many find their items at other flea markets, from their own home, from online sites such as Ebay and from companies such as Avon or Mary Kay Cosmetics.

When you become a vendor it is up to you to draw attention to your table and to get people to check out your items and buy from you. Jackson printing companies can help by providing colorful self-standing signs, posters and banners. Banner printing services can provide a large banner to hang over your table or behind you if you are against a wall. Investing in business cards to pop in the carrier bags that you also can provide for your customers will ensure that they will remember you and will want to buy from you at the next flea market.
