I am new to this site & I am already blessed by some pearls of wisdom! I've been doing bazaars for 4+ yrs & finally made a profit last fall when I started making ceramic Christmas trees that light up...you know what I mean!!! hahaha

I won't go on but the newest "pearl" here I learned was to give out free candy to kids. Of course I will be depleted in the first few hours as the bazaars I go to have lots of kids!! hahaha

 What I may be able to add is; since I am a ovarian cancer survivor I sometimes give out those "jelly" bracelets as people go by, whether they buy something or not!
 If I think of anything else I'll post again!

THANKS so much to everyone for your posts!!

thank you for all your pearls. We are going to our first flea market next month, and we'll be doing fairs in the fall. One I've always used where there may not be a bathroom near is a kids training potty (& a bucket with a lid for disposing) in the back (of the suv is often closer & cleaner then the port-a-pottys for my kids and I've used it in an emergency too). I have 5 kids, two of which will be with us during the craft fairs or flea markets. I also make lists of everything.

Love all the "pearls"! Someone had mentioned about making sure your display is interesting and has different levels. I wanted to elaborate on that. I'm really on a budget so I'm always trying to find ways to save money. What I found had worked was to go to thrift stores and look at everything with a creative eye on how you can use it for a display. I went to a Habitat for Humanity store and got some light bulb covers (the fancy ones they use on ceiling fans) and I also got a chandelier base. I took the chandelier base apart and used bowls to display small things. One lady liked it so much she asked to take a picture of it. I also bought a tomato cage to use for hanging things. I spent less than $10 for all that. I plan to add stuff to it to make it prettier (I ran out of time before) but it's much better than some of the display things I've found for sale for muuuuch more.
