    This one is real short and sweet. I do this every June-August and kill it. The trick is to buy glowsticks in bulk as cheap as possible. If you need glowsticks, PM me, I can get em for 9 cents.

    My trick is, look around and write in a calender all of the upcoming fireworks, festivals, fairs, etc. A permit is needed but I've never bought one or ran into any trouble. During the fireworks you got a window of an hour to sell , recruit some more people to help you to scale it!

    An hour before the fire works go on, get in your position and crack these babies. Make sure you near where families and their kids would be sitting to watch the action. Scale up and down the rows, "Glow Sticks , Glow sticks, 3$ or 2 for 5$!" and they will come running. Depending on your location, you may not have enough time or hands to serve everyone. I sell out of a 1000 myself , easy at any given event.

    I sell bracelets for 1.50$ each or 4 for 5$
    I sell necklaces for 3$ or 2 for 5$
    I sell bracelets 8 for 10$
    I sell necklaces 5 for 10$


    This is an awesome and fun money maker for the summer. As I said, if you need a hookup on glowsticks, pm me.

    There's one guy on Alibaba selling them for 7 cent, but to that comes the shipping which is kind of expensive for this kind of low quality items. OP are the glowsticks you can get already in USA or do you have to pay for the shipping as well?

    I come from a land downunder
    from someone who also has done this years ago -

    1. yes it works well
    2. make sure your stock isn't too old, those things have a short shelf life and you don't want to be stuffing around with ones that don't work

    Actually found them for 4c each when you buy 1000 at a time. These are the 8" ones, good for bracelets (Or connecting 2 of the same color for a necklace?). Even found someone who will get them to my by July 3rd. Bonus. Going to try this out in my area, where we have 4 separate fireworks displays between the 3rd-4th..

    Also, I think I'm going to use the approach:
    1/$2
    2/$3
    4/$5

    Thanks again this is a great idea! Anyone who has done this before run into any trouble about licenses? :detective

    There must be a way to step this up a level.

    Perhaps you could pick up some nice fireworks and sell raffle tickets for them while you deal out your glow sticks. That way your customers will return later to find out if they won where you can have an "end of the night discount" on all products and hope they buy more. If you do it right, you'll profit from the raffle as well.
