Where else can one enjoy good food, exciting entertainment, and wonderful friendly salespeople while shopping for valuable antiques and collectibles, unique and unusual new products, and just plain good buys of everyday products from family folk in such a safe and fun environment?
The Vendors themselves are unique and wonderful caring people that enjoy waiting on you. They are very friendly and they know and will talk with you about what they are selling. They are not like the average salesperson at regular retail outlets where they do not know what they are selling and don't seem to care if they serve you or not.
There are over 500,000 flea market vendors in the United States, serving over 150 million visitors in flea markets annually.
A Survey by APS showed 70% of customers visit a flea market more than 5 times each year. Fifty percent are male. Twenty-five percent are minorities. Fifty-five percent are married. Seventy-two percent are younger than 45. Sixty-two percent make over $25,000 while 25% have over $50,000 annual incomes.
Today, the Flea Market Industry in the United States has grown into a multi-billion-dollar business with annual sales of over five billion dollars, annual payroll of one and one half billion and pay over four hundred million in taxes. It is the birthplace of entrepreneurs and contributes to the local, state and national economy, and their National Flea Market Association is monitoring the Industry activities.
There is a National Flea Market Information Center of the Flea Market Industry on the Internet at http://www.fleamarkets.com for all elements of the Industry, including but not limited to Shoppers, Vendors, Owners, Managers, Suppliers, the Media and all that have a common interest in Flea Markets.
