The Merchandiser Group hopes everyone is staying healthy and safe during these troubling times. Many flea markets and swap meets are closed down for the time being, which makes things difficult for vendors and those who make their main source of income from those events, but keeping you and your family healthy is the most important thing right now.
Vendors shouldn’t lose hope because there are still plenty of ways to sell your products online. Even if you don’t have an ecommerce website, there are a plethora of platforms besides eBay and Etsy for you to sell on, including Fleabay.net, vFlea.com, Bonanza.com, Srchie.com, and even Poshmark. These are all online websites that act exactly like a virtual flea market, where buyers can sift through items in different categories and bargain with the vendors.
So there are plenty of ways to get your products out there and make some extra cash. Even though things will still be slow until markets open up again, it’s still some source of income until all of this madness ends, which is hopefully soon.
On a brighter note, many organizations have been coming together and creating fundraisers or making donations for all the small businesses that are negatively being impacted by the coronavirus. Beverage brand So Good So You has launched a call to action for consumers to nominate ER and ICU workers at hospitals most affected by COVID-19 to receive Hospital Hero care packs, each Monday and Friday during the COVID-19 pandemic, attorney Kevin Rowe with Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys are going live on Facebook to give away $200 Walmart Gift cards to 20 total people each week, eBay just launched “Up & Running,” an accelerator program specifically designed to help retailers without an e-commerce presence transition to selling online, pledging up to $100 million in support for small businesses across North America, and the list goes on.
So stay bright, stay healthy, and keep trucking on!
