If I do finally decide to get back into the flea market business and it works well, I’m going to be looking at buying a van to haul the merchandise to the flea market. My sister has been telling me for many years that she has always wanted me to buy one of the mini vans that were so popular a few years back. But now that all of her children are grown, I’m not so sure a minivan would do the trick for me with my needs for a flea market vehicle. I think that with the family situation the way it is now, I just might be happy with something more like the Toyota Highlander or a Saturn Vue than a mini-van. They both seem like a good family car.
Besides buying a new vehicle I would like to invest in some nice logo mats to use, I think that they would be a nice touch for my customers to stand on while getting my name out. A nice logo canopy to use when outside and in wet weather would be a good choice as well. If I could count on the flea markets inside I would even consider purchasing some trade show carpet, I’ve seen some real nice ones being used out there, but there are no guarentees from what I’ve heard in the flea market business.
