Above all else, the most influential factor for flea market purchasing decisions is price. Shoppers look to flea markets for low prices and unbeatable bargains. To profitably sell your wares at prices below the competition, you’ll have to be discerning when selecting suppliers and products. Choosing wholesalers who specialize in discount, dollar, and convenience merchandise is a smart move for sellers in the value priced retail space.
If you’re purchasing from a wholesaler who offers products specifically for dollar, discount, or convenience stores such as energy drinks, lighters, and other small impulse buys, they often have prepackaged counter displays available. Cardboard or plastic counter racks and displays make it easy to introduce new products give your booth a more professional appearance.
Flea market vendors conduct over $30 billion in sales each year. For many fleas, fairs, and festivals across the country, spring and summer are peak selling season. Shoppers are flocking to markets for great prices, unique finds, and a dynamic shopping experience. Growing interest in dollar, discount, and convenience items is good news for any value-priced shopping destination. However, when it comes to low prices at local businesses, no one does it better than flea markets. Here are some of The Merchandiser Group’s top sources for in-demand convenience and impulse items at flea market-friendly prices.
