Happy New Year! Hopefully you had a wonderful and eventful holiday season, with lots of sales and gifts. The Merchandiser Group is excited to spend another year with everyone, bringing all the latest in flea market news as well as trending products and suppliers.
We’ve got lots in store for flea market vendors and resellers this year, starting off on the right foot with our Ultimate Seller Buying Calendar, which shows you all of the important holidays and events to track throughout the year. We want to keep sellers prepared and ahead of the game, so definitely make sure to check that out.
The flea market and resale industry is booming, and is apparently one of the fastest growing segments of retail. There are currently more than 25,000 resale, consignment and Not For Profit resale shops in the United States, with an increase of 7 percent each year over the past two years.
This past Small Business Saturday also proved how well the online section of retail is doing, with $3.6 billion coming in from online sales the weekend after Thanksgiving. Adobe Analytics, which tracks online sales, says that’s up 18 percent from a year earlier. Even without online sales, more consumers are turning to Small Business Saturday to start buying their holiday gifts, or even just to treat themselves. The more shoppers understand how shopping small can impact their community, the more they make an effort to stay local.
May 2020 bring you good vibes and lots of busy times throughout the year. Happy New Year and happy selling!
