PURCHASING SKILLS, YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN YOU TO A FLEA TYPE OF MARKET 

 

 

Most of the people who don’t have much money but they want to buy things that they can use or wear every day. They tend to go to the nearest flea market instead of going to a shopping mall. They can save more money and they can choose some items that are worth the price to pay for. When you go to a flea market make sure to prepare yourself when it comes to bargaining things like clothes, furniture, and other stuff that you could purchase. Even you are not an expert negotiator or don’t know much about the bargaining skill. You can still find some good items with reasonable price. Sometimes the seller or the salesperson itself will automatically give you some discounts without asking them. You could still buy some brand-new things and clothes there.

  1. Search for the upcoming events in your city or another area. There will be a big possibility that you will get some information about the opening of a flea market or even a garage sale. You could find good items with a very reasonable price and sometimes they could even give it to you with a very lower price. 
  2. Think about the things and stuff you are planning to buy. Of course, do research about their local price. In this way, you will know and compare the prices they have. You could save the picture of the price and show to them when you go to the flea market. It will help you to have a lower price when dealing with the items.
  3. If you have a plan to go to this kind of activity. Make sure that you go there as early as possible. This will give you the chance to choose newer things and be able to select the best things and stuff. When you go there very late or too late. You would only choose to those items that were not been selected by others.  
  4. Don’t bring credit cards with you when you go to the market. Most of the vendors here would not accept this kind of payment. So, it would be better to secure cash with you whenever you go to any kind of market even to a garage sale.  
  5. Don’t buy things immediately unless they give you a very good discount or price. You can try to roam around every stall first to choose which one do you like and you want to buy. This is a good thing only if you are not going to be tired of walking around easily.  
  6. If you found all the items you like. You can ask the salesperson if there would be any discounts or special prices for the chosen items you have selected.  
  7. Try to buy things in bulk or more than one or two items. In this manner, the owner could give you a higher reduction in price and maybe give you some freebies.
