national Sunday newspaper supplement's travel writer, Everett Potter, recently named the Daytona Flea and Farmer's Market year-round emporium among America's top five flea markets, joining an elite group including the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, Calif., the Kane County Flea Market in St. Char…les, Ill., and the Austin Country Flea Market in Texas. The greatest American flea market, Potter reported, was in Brimfield, Mass., with 5,000 dealers in 21 fields. While the Daytona Flea & Farmers Market is one-fifth that size, at peak times up to 50,000 patrons travel its 3 1/2 miles of aisles packed with merchandise mounds, produce piles, clothing collections, antiques, jewelry and eclectic stuff, like lucky bamboo and dreamcatchers. Forget the Austin Country Flea Market- Whoever said that was a great Flea Market has never been here. Its all "New" crap from china~ tools, toys, Tejano mix tapes and Airbrushed Tupac sweatshirts. It has very little used "flea market" items. Bussey's in San Antonio is 1000x better. Well, if you are in the CHICAGO area, WOLFF'S FLEA MARKET is great! They are open 6-3 Sundays April-October starting April 25, 2010 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont. It's huge! 700 vendors with new items, old, antique, vintage, junk, produce, tools, sports memorabilia, gourmet food, bikes, clothing and more. Also indoors Sat & Sun 8-4 at 1775 N. Rand Rd., Palatine, IL at least through March 2011. Similar vendors. wolffs.com (MORE)
Laws would be different in each city/town/state. You would really need to contact your local government office to see what they have on the books.
it come from the DS game called animal crossing: wild world. HA......hardly, this is the answer I found many times over:. Flea markets, where secondhand goods can be had cheaply, are not just an American phenomenon. In fact, the word "flea market has its origins in the name of a famous Parisian st…reet market.. The "Marche aux puces Saint-Ouen is a colorful market on the northern border of Paris that is a favorite stop for tourists and locals alike. In the winding alleyways that make up the Marche shoppers can hone their haggling skills and perhaps find a rarity among the booths and tables. The Marche aux puces has been in operation for more than a century.. Francophones know that the French phrase "marche aux puces literally translates to "flea market. George Dougherty wrote in his 1922 book In Europe that the Marche aux puces "is called the 'Flea' Market because there are so many second hand articles sold of all kinds that they are believed to gather fleas.. Whether Doughtery was merely parroting Parisian folklore or relating the actual etymology behind the French name, his use of "flea market to describe the street market is the first known example of this term in English. The term didn't begin popping up with any real frequency until the 1950s. At that time, it was usually used to refer to markets of this type in Paris, Spain and elsewhere in Europe. During the 1960s, however, it began to be applied more frequently to such gatherings in the United States. (MORE)
It originated in France...there were the outdoor markets full of used furniture, clothing, household items and such and then there were the fleas (in the stuff) so it eventually was dubbed a "flea market". Hope this helped!
yes they are. you don't know how many cheap hotwheel cars I've got at some
A flea market is a place where people can buy and sell goods, usually second-hand. This is usually outdoors, though it can be indoors. The prices are open to bartering, and this is a much more common practice at a flea market than in a high street shop (for example). In the US I think it is also kno…wn as a "swap meet". The origin of the name is in dispute. It may come from the fact that the buyers and sellers "hop" around the place a bit like fleas, or it may be because when they first appeared, goods (such as furniture) were often infested with parasites, so the buyer could be said to be buying fleas as well as the goods themselves.

Because it has really nice things that people sale it for less money so it could get the adver4ge like it could get more people buying there because it is less so people would want to get it.

What can you sell at flea markets? Anything! Here are some tips for selling items successfully: 1. Sell what people WANT ! There's a difference between what people need and what people want, they don't always buy what they need. 2. Sell consumable items. Sell things that people will use…, run out of and need to buy more, hopefully from you. Weight sets and stereo speakers are not consumable. Cookies, shampoo, nutritional supplements are. 3. Sell what everyone can use. If you only sell purses, you automatically cut yourself short. Men don't buy purses. If you only sell kids toys, you don't make sales from people without kids, or from most adults. 4. Be the only one selling it. Why sell what everyone else is selling? Cut out any competition and you'll put yourself in the enviable position of being the only vendor that people can buy that stuff from. 5. Buy it at the lowest possible cost . The less you pay, the more profit you can make. Many times, wholesale companies will have sales that will save you a ton of money if you can buy in large amounts. The more you buy at one time, the less per item you will pay! So save that money and get ready to buy in bulk. 6. Sell new items, not used. You can make a little money selling used items. Selling at flea markets and swap meets is an excellent way to make a lot of money, and get paid in cold, hard cash! It's fun and very rewarding, but there are things you need to know if you want to make the BIG money like the pros do. (MORE)

The origins are disputed. The first name may have been Fly Market connected to New York in the 18th Century. Flea Market may have been a translation of the French Marche aux Puces, a reference to 'fleas' remaining in old furniture brought out for sale
you are rich and many people are not so they can shop from their but flea markets actually have good quality stuff and many rich people actually go there!! flea markets you rock!
Are you asking what are the advantages of owning a flea market or are you asking about the advantages of owning your own flea market business (selling at flea markets)?. There are numerous advantages to selling at flea markets when compared to running a normal brick and mortar type business (such a…s a pizza shop or cafe, a card shop, etc. located in a strip mall).. The brick and mortar business requires an investment of thousands of dollars before you make your first dollar. Once you find a spot in a good location, you must lease the space (could be $2,500/mo and more), you must install the hardware (shelves, cabinets, countertops, desks, etc.) and you must stock the business with the merchandise (which requires thousands of dollars of merchandise to fill the shelves. Nobody likes to buy in a store where the shelves are almost empty). And unless you intend to be there every hour your business is open, you will need to hire employees and pay taxes and workman's comp, and things get complicated, so you'll need a good bookkeeper, too.. Plus, if you sell food items, you'll need a health deptartment inspection and you may need other inspections as well, such as a fire department inspection, further delaying your opening. You'll need a business license and a tax permit before you open the front door to the public.. And you'll need to advertise. The advertising budget for a small business can be $1,000 a month and more. But if you don't advertise, people won't know where you are.. Compare that to a flea market business, which can be started with only $50 in merchandise. It can be operated on a card table. Space rent varies. It can be as little as $5 per day to as much as $50 per day per space, but most average between $12-$20 per day. (I only pay $200 a month and I rent two spaces each day, every weekend.). It is a very simple business. Rent a space, set up your tables, place your items on the table and talk to whoever stops by to see what you have for sale.. You stay as long as you want. If you feel like leaving at noon, you can. You don't have a sign on the door saying you're open until 9 pm. Most vendors are there from 7 am until 3 or 4 in the afternoon, only on Saturday and Sunday unless the market is open more days of the week. Most are open only on Saturday and Sunday.. You really don't need a business permit but you will need a tax permit, which is easy to get and doesn't cost much. (See your local State Dept. of Revenue for information.). Will you need to hire employees? Not really. You are only there a few hours each day, two days per week. Not having employees eliminates a lot of potential headaches.. Even though your business may be new, you can still take advantage of the many years the flea market has been open. You won't need to advertise. Everyone in town knows it is there and they come each weekend because they can never tell what they will find one weekend to the next. They'll find such a variety of merchandise they would never find in a WalMart Supercenter, both new and used items, and buyers have the opportunity to actually speak to the owner of the items . Try doing that at Wal Mart.. I am not stretching the truth when I say you could have 10,000 buyers walk by your space each day in some of the larger flea markets, and if only 10% of those people buy something you could be making a very decent income. (Small businesses located in strip malls wish they could have that many potential customers come through the door but never will!). These are just a few of the advantages of owning and operating your own flea market business and there are many more.. Many professional flea market vendors make thousands of dollars each and every month just working weekends. I know because I am one of them.. Selling at flea markets is an easy business to start, does not require a lot of up-front money to get started, can be operated on weekends, allowing you to continue working at your job five days per week (it's good to have the health benefits), and will allow you to supplement your current income or replace it altogether.

I bought some nice blankets at a garage sale once, and they were really inexpensive. Unfortunately they gave me lice both on my head and elsewhere. I spent a minor fortune on Nix, and ended up burning not just those blankets, but all my blankets, sheets, pillowcases, pillows, and even my mattress, a…lthough I would have replaced my mattress in about another year or two, anyway. Teaches me right for trusting people in the parking lot of a fundamentalist church, I guess. The first use of the term "flea market" dates from about 1920, when an outdoor bazaar near Paris started getting called that. Among the items being sold were livestock. Apparently, some customer was unhappy that his purchase included insects he didn't particularly want, and his complaint about "a market of fleas" struck a nerve among others with similar gripes. Wish I'd had enough influence to get a certain church named the "Disciples of Vermin" or "St Lice Apostolic Church" or soothing funny, catchy, and punitive. (MORE)
Most flea markets are open only on Saturdays and Sundays, usually from 6 or 7 am to as late as 5 or 6 pm.. In Arizona, where it becomes quite hot by noon, there are flea markets that open as early as 4 am.! Buyers will come equipped with flashlights. By noon, many of the buyers and vendors have alr…eady went home because of the heat.. In northern climates, many flea markets are indoors, and have regular business hours, opening around 8 or 9 am. and staying open until 6 or 7 pm., and some are also open on weekdays as well.. I am a professional flea market vendor and make a very good income just working weekends. (MORE)
In the United States, flea markets are either called flea markets or swap meets.. They could also be called a bizaar, a boot sale (UK), a farmer's market (although farmer's markets in the states are mostly limited to home-grown produce, honey, plants and that sort of item), and many churches and ch…arities have such fundraising events as Spring Festivals, carnivals and the like. They make money by renting the spaces to vendors and sometimes asking for a percentage of the vendor sales as well.. Flea markets, no matter what they might be called, come in different sizes, from small (five or six vendors) to very large (professionally-operated markets with 2,000+ vendors each weekend).. Some are outdoor markets and some are located indoors, usually those in the colder areas of the country so they can be open all year, even when it snows.. Selling at flea markets is an easy and very affordable way to start your own small business, one that can supplement your current income or completely replace it altogether if you'd like. (MORE)

A flea market happens on the first Saturday of a month where you can sell stuff in your house or you can go to your villagers houses and buy there furniture.
The Flea Market is a weekend event where villagers from your town allow others to come in and buy some of their items, although some of their furniture isn't for sale for various reasons. Many animals choose to sell items at a raised amount. You can also sell your own belongings - any furniture …out on your ground floor when villagers visit is up for sale. However, even if you run out of items to sell, the villager will take a few minutes to leave unless you leave yourself, then they'll ask if you need to go, and say they should leave. If you leave and re enter your house enough, every villager will come in once. Items or creatures that a villager buys from your house usually will be displayed in their house the next day. When you are buying from your neighbors you can either take the price they give you, or leave it. If one of them is buying from you however, they will haggle by saying the price is too high, and you have to lower it for them to buy it. Comically a cranky villager, when buying something from you, may hand you money that they claim is from their super secret giant bell hoard. A villager will buy a max of three items from your house. However, if you go into a different room without leaving the house, then go back to where the villager is, it resets it so that the villager will buy another three items. This can be repeated as much as you wish. The maximum acceptable price they will pay is a little over twice the selling price to Tom Nook, which means for furniture, they will sell for half the buying cost. If you have bugs or insects in your house, the same rule applies, twice the selling price. So if you stock up on high priced fish/insects before or during a flea market day, you can make double amount of bells by placing them in your home and coaxing the villagers towards the creature you wish to sell.

In many jurisdictions, a 'switch blade' (automatic knife) is illegal to sell, as well as to be in possession of.. But in some jurisdictions there are no laws against selling them, so there is a chance you will find a pocket knife seller selling automatic knifes at a flea market.. Be aware, though,… that because of the different laws in different areas, you may be legal here but very illegal there. If you are caught in possession of an automatic knife, the penalties may be almost as severe as carrying a concealed handgun without a permit. (MORE)
a flea market got its name because in the old days fleas used to live in the markets and products that they soled
A flea relies on a host (animal or human) to survive. A flea canalso jump or travel from animal to animal, human to human, object(like yard grass) to animal or human. At a flea market 'a host' is the person who offers the space forvendors. The metaphor 'flea market' refers to how merchandise'jumps …or travels' from one former owner or owners to another newowner.

"Hawk" in that context means "to sell" as in the more common phrase "hawk your wares"

Do this in front of the vender and if he/she doesn't pay attention come back saying how you have to go but you still want t…hat and just spent money on _____ so now you only have ______$$. If the seller pays no attention inquire about the product as your friends tug you away to go and try to make a deal. (MORE)
Yes. The owner of the flea market or the people who set it up have the authority to deny anyone service, or in your case, a table to display/sell your wares.
It is where you buy things/furniture from other animal's houses. It happens on the 1st Saturday on every month.
It is a market if you are poorly you can get lots and lots of different types of operations.
The patrons at a flea market bounce all around from vendor to vendor, like fleas. I think this is the correct answer! :)
A place where people can sell their stuff by renting a small space,and a place where you can buy all kinds of things,games,consoles, and even food.But i also have my own question about the flea market,does it have internet access? Best Regards, Random :3
I suppose if you have a gun but i don't think the have guns in the game sorry!!
You need to sell items people want. If your're selling items that aren't popular you won't have many sales. Another way is to keep your prices low. This will attract customers.
1.you can sell crafts you made or old one you have at home 2.candy's that you decorated into a necklace or little figures 3.old clothes you don't wear but make sure it looks kinda new i hope that helped you out a little bit :3 *
Flea in french is Puce, the phrase flea market comes from France when back in the days, the "marche aux puces" was infested with fleas.
Well, according to a trivia game I was just playing run by a local radio station, it's called a "Trash and Treasure Market." The game only gives you one chance to get a right answer, I chose this one, and it was scored as correct, so I'm going with it.
I would have to say,the outside Flea Market In Beebe Arkansas it's been happening for many many years. People come from all over Arkansas. It's worth the drive,plus there's several inside Flea markets in beebe to check also
I reckon you can but I recommend you don't get it from stores like the Flea Market it may be cheaper but the game MIGHT have glitches and it may be a pirate game (although they are rare to come across pirate DVD's are more common) I would get pokemon black from stores like Argos, GAME and other main… stores like that although it could cost more.

I used to play woogi world myself (and be sure to play the usana games because my mom works for usana) and to tell you the truth I forgot. I wish i remembered but you should go to and in every place until you find it.
There is a chance that Almay make up would be sold at flea markets, however, it is not advised to buy it there. Flea markets often sell used items and you should never purchase used cosmetics.
It would make good sense to contact Marvel Comics, who holds the copyright on these characters, and ask if they consider this activity an infringement on their copyright.
That's racist, and anyways it's the Arabs! And it is really cheap and some stuff are good
Yes and sometimes they are the official stuff and sometimes they are knock offs. Used jerseys are also normally available and are a bargain.. I bought an Atlanta Braves Jerey brand new for $20 and it is the same jersey they actually wear and sells for up to $100 in MLB stores..
Often you need to sign up or buy a booth from the office that runsthe flea market. Call the market and ask them which is the case,then you can go in and fill out the form or pay the rental fee.
You could sell a car or two as a private seller... typically, once you sell seven cars, you're required by law to be a licensed car dealer.
Flea markets occur in many different times and places. Your question is a bit like asking, when and where is bakery?
Usually not, the one here in Denver doesn't allow paraphernalia.....then again I have seen a bong on a storage locker sellers tarp before...it is up to the operator.
There could be. What any given "flea market" has is not necessarilythe same as any other, nor even the same as it had last week. You'dneed to go there and find out for yourself.
They probably called it a flea market because fleas can crawl inand bite people up.
