Flea market ideas?

I am thinking about setting up a stand at our local flea market this summer to generate some extra money on Saturdays. Does anyone have any ideas what might be some good items to sell at the stand? I am open to ideas.

  • I do flea markets, events and shows ALOT...

    I can help you.. and I'll spend time with you on questions and such and what to do. I've been working these in one form or another for a few years. We do two different types of items right now. This weekend I worked a one day Flea market and actually made $530.00. I was pretty happy.
    I see alot of things that people sell, and I talk to alot of them. Some come back, some don't.
    I'll be glad to help you in any indeavors you have.

    I advertise on my home page here what I do - but I will help you with YOUR ideas. I think we should all do what we love ~ OR at least try it... You never know what diamond you have hiding in your closet!

A few things I've seen do well are body jewelry, incense, perfume and fragrance oils and fragrance oil diffusers. A source for incense-making supplies, fragrance and perfume oils is
