    Just curious, I'm just opened a booth at a local flea market and I'm planning on doing outdoor flea markets when the weather permits.

    Has anyone here made good money operating a flea market/swap meet business. If so, what kinds of items should I be looking to sell?

    Where I live there's warehouses that sell pallets for like 400bucks and they have all sorts of electronics, I once bought one and made profit its a cool biz but you gotta start with at least 2 electronic pallets so you can have a lot of things to sell. A friend of my mom's won a lawsuit and got like 10k she invested in a truck full of pallets and shes making bank BIG TIME!

    when my uncle passed he left with thousands of different products. Me and my dad went to a flea market every sunday and started at a few hundred but got into the four figure range once wr knew how it all worked. he left us with random stuff from dvd to random wiod pilings. we found some christmas decorations on the side of the road and sold it for $15 so anything cheap and random will sell. peoplr there are too cheap to pay more than 20 on anything so keep the items cheap and sell via volume.

    I am going back this april and plan on doing it again.

    DVD's usually do pretty well. PM me and I'll give a link to an ebook about how to make bank with flea markets. Also, I have a list of DVD wholesalers and suppliers if you're interested.
