Well, we happened to watch a DVD the night before about buying and selling at flea markets, so we took the advice and set up early - real early, like 6:30AM. People were out with flashlights checking everything out!! Wild! There was one single item that we'd put out that got snatched up as a "sleeper", but I really think that it was a bogus item, or at least an imitation (and it was priced as such). Of course, my husband immediately started kicking himself for letting the thing go, but what a fascinating experience!

We sold about half the stuff during the sale - most of it for less than we'd marked it at, which was completely what I expected. The rest I plan to take to my favourite charity shop. It was a really satisfying experience to see people get enthusiastic about the things we had - if they only knew we have an entire garage full of even BETTER junk!

I'm in the process of getting a resale license from the state so we'll be able to "do" the shows. I really want to do this business properly and make a go of it.
