Vendors, get ready to shamrock and roll this month, because things are looking up! As the COVID-19 vaccines continue to roll out, consumer confidence continues to rise and more shoppers are ready to come out to the markets. According to the New York Times database, new COVID cases continue to decrease with each passing day.
During the week of February 7-13, there were an average of 91,130 cases per day, a decrease of 39 percent from the average two weeks earlier. While we are still unsure if these decreasing numbers are due to the vaccines, it is leading up to be a busy and successful summer buying season for flea markets and swap meets.
Consumer confidence is not the only thing that is rising. According to many flea markets across the U.S., they have been seeing an increase in both shoppers and sellers each weekend. While outdoor markets are still the main go-to since they offer more space to keep socially distanced, between lowering COVID cases and increased vaccine distribution, both indoor and outdoor markets will soon be seeing their numbers go back to pre-pandemic levels.
Let’s take these good vibes and put them into a great shopping month. Happy St. Patrick’s Day and happy shopping!
