    Candles sell. You need to come up with a twist though... like designs and all that. Something like here...

    Hand made clay musical instruments like whistles and such have a strong appeal.

    I remember buying a bound report in 1995 through post for 20, where it teached you to make plaster of paris cast small figurines and cottages. Actually there was a guy in USA, who set up a crafts mail order business and became a millionaire. He was selling hand painted small scale cottages and wall plates.

    T-shirts would sell. If you get the right designs for your market for the right price. Make and print your own transfer paper designs and iron in on your blank t-shirts or cotton tottie bags.

    Silver antique guys scour the fleamarkets. Take the look what they doing.

    I also have been thinking about opening a booth at the fleamarket. I know someone that made bank selling candles haha. I always see people selling somewhat new dvds for good prices too. Kind of interested in something like that.

    Why not sell a simple food or drink item? Bottled water would be good for a hot day and you probably wouldn't need a license to do that...you can get it cheap and even skip renting a table, just walk around with a small cooler of 6-10 offering them to people as they shop...then go back to your car to reload. If you buy for $.50 and sell at $1.00, and go to the right market, you could clear some cash in no time...plus you save $ on overhead by not renting a table. ;-) Popcorn or hot dogs also seem like inexpensive alternatives, though the cart might cost some $. Orrr...you can set up your own flea market...what they do in the UK is called a 'boot sale', which means someone rents a field, parking lot, or a car park and charges sellers a fee to set up tables. I'd suggest finding a friend with some land in a decent location who will let you use it for free or for less than $100, then PLASTER your town with flyers and classified ads, then collect the $ from sellers and let them sit out all day in the hot sun. At most, you are only risking the price of renting the land, but assuming your friend charges you $100 for the land and you get 20 sellers at $15/table, the least you will make is $200 profit, which isn't too shabby for several hours work.

    My wife makes these silly little multi-colored tutus for babies at home and slls the stuffin' out of them around town just by word of mouth. She buys rolls of elastic and sews evenly cut strips of this mesh like fabric all the way around them. They look goofy as hell but apparently moms love that kind of crap to dress their babies up in. I don't think I can add pix yet but I'll attach a photo of one of these things for you to look at. She slls them for like $25 a pop, Lol.

    Like some said start small selling food until you can eventually afford your own small trailer. I get hungry walking around looking and so does everyone else.

    Back in the early 70's I knew a couple from the Brownsville area. They would fill up their van with cheap Mexican crafts and sell them along the way to Florida.

    That's how they paid for their vacation every year. They were a really likable couple and very interesting to talk to.

    My ex-wifes brother used to sell house plants at flea markets that he grew in his greenhouse. Made a comfortable living doing that.

    Moral of this story is that just about ANYTHING will sell if you source it right!

    I read about a guy who built wooden chairs in his garage. When friends and relatives saw them, they began to buy them.

    The guy made some jigs to make building his chairs easier and faster. Sales took off, and he had a business.
