Flea Market Results - Not So Great

Well, the flea market is over and I have to say I was very disappointed in the end result. I spent well over a day cleaning, pricing and packing my items to sell and arrived at the flea market at 5:30 in the morning raring to go.

After setting up my booth, I settled down to wait for what I hoped would be a hoard of shoppers out to get some good deals rather than shop the stores this holiday season. I was sadly disappointed.

After 7 hours, I had made only $80 profit ($120 counting my $40 reservation fee). Not such a great use of my time, unfortunately.

So, in the future, I will be sticking to ebay even though I'm not so happy with their fees.
