1. GROUPING GOODS
When you are considering your layout it is best to group like items together. It will make the goods look more abundant and makes for a better display. Those shoppers who know exactly what they are looking for are able to find it faster, and they’re more likely to buy multiple pieces.
2. CHECKOUT SMALL VALUABLE ITEMS
Keep valuable objects close to you or at the checkout table so you can keep an eye on them, especially if they’re small or fragile.
If you don’t, jewelry and real silver may walk away when you’re not looking. Delicate ephemera (vintage paper items) may be damaged by shoppers that don’t appreciate its value.
3. CHILDPROOF YOUR BREAKABLES
Some shoppers let their children run wild — and those who do will probably refuse to pay for your now-broken collection of carnival glass. In order to avoid such situation make sure to display your fragile pieces out if children’s reach.
4. PLACEMENT OF EXPENSIVE ITEMS
Place desirable sale merchandise at the spot of highest visibility at your vendor stand. It’s crucial to keep in mind the promotional value of those pieces front and center for shoppers to see. especially seasonal items and large pieces. Not only does it make the sale look bigger and better, it also gives browsers a reason to stop.
5. STRAIGHTEN & REARRANGE DURING DOWNTIME
Flea market sales can get very hectic and shoppers may make a mess of the merchandise. One way to manage it is to use any downtime to take a moment and do some straightening before the next wave of shoppers arrive.
