you will have plenty
of time to set up your booth up before the flea market opens. You may
reduce your set up time by carefully labeling your merchandise and display
materials in boxes you bring.

sheets to protect your merchandise against rain and clips to hold the covers securely to the table
in case of wind.

your table and drape all the way to the floor. It is more attractive and it
gives you a good place to store boxes out of view.

booth when you are done setting it up. You can examine the picture later
to see what elements you like and what you think could use improvement.
- Be certain that you
have brought enough merchandise to last through the entire sale.

display racks from Frescos.com or have a handy person make them for you.

black or white materials for display. The contrast makes the jewelry
catch the eye better.

consider using your own body as a means of displaying your jewelry. If
you do this, wear clothing that will have good contrast with the jewelry
and show it off well.

sold with new merchandise right away.

cards, then be sure to make a sign letting people know.

that display your web site’s URL and prominently display your business cards.

flea markets, some states require that you display your business
license. Check with the flea market organizer to be sure.
