The Merchandiser has given you a lot of trending summer product ideas to help get all eyes on your booth this season, and now it’s time to sell them. Between all the different vacations consumers take over the summer, there are many popular tourist attractions for you to sell your souvenirs, especially for vendors who love to travel. Flea markets are popping up all over the place with the coming of the warm weather, so now’s the time to scope out the hottest attractions and find nearby markets to sell your products.
New York is one of the top tourist attraction in the U.S., and Manhattan houses most of the bustle with the Statue of Liberty, broadway shows, the Empire State Building, Central Park, and plenty of flea markets. Manhattan is home to many different flea markets littered in between the different skyscrapers and buildings.
New York is also the likely place for visitors to come from out of the country. Even if they don’t end up staying in NY, they will most likely fly into JFK airport and stay a few days, looking around and enjoying the city before they move on. It’s a great place to grab the attention of consumers from inside and outside the country.
San Francisco, CA
California is another great touristy area, attracting consumers from all over to see the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39, Golden Gate Park and a plethora of museums and flea markets. San Francisco is a very wealthy area, so most consumers shopping around are ready to spend cash, and when they get tired of paying full prices, they can take a load off at a local flea market.
Alameda Flea Market and Treasure Island Flea Market are some of the biggest markets in the San Francisco area and have been around for a while, gaining a regular and popular crowd. All flea markets in California are nice, but you’ll want to scope out the more popular ones to sell your souvenirs. Tourists will most likely check online for the best flea market in the area, so you’ll want to be wherever the customer goes.
One of the hottest vacation spots during the summer is Walt Disney World. As it’s obviously extremely hard to get your booth in Disney World, you can always set up shop at a nearby market. There are plenty of flea markets to choose from in the surrounding area, and selling at more than one is always an option. Disney World isn’t the only attraction in Florida, so some tourists may not be visiting or are staying somewhere outside of the resort area and they will want to peruse around and see what else Orlando has to offer.
Selling state merchandise is important at all of these locations since tourists won’t be from the area and will want something to remember the vacation by. Make the most out of your summer sales and start selling your souvenirs and gifts at these popular attractions. You can even make it a road trip with your family and travel to a few different flea markets and take a vacation yourself!
