When I lived in Southern Vermont, I lived near the Newfane Flea Market. This was one of the greatest flea markets in all of New England and took place every Saturday from May to October. I first came to the area as a "ski bum". One day, one of my NYC buddies said his dad had a shirt business in NY. He could get seconds of men's shirts, sell them to me for 75 cents (yes! and this wasn't all that long ago!). I got a table in the flea market for ten bucks and sold the shirts for $3.00. Another dynasty was born!
Over the weeks, people gave me stuff to sell. I also made Tibetan Sheepskin hats and sold them as well as sheepskins, which I bought direct from the factory in New Hampshire. It was a lot of fun and I liked the other vendors.
To increase the authenticity of my Vermonter look, I'd put my hair in braids, just say "yup" and "nope" and all the Flatlanders took pictures of me as they thought I was a real Vermonter! It helped sales.
I've done many flea markets since that time and love it. It's also reminiscent of time spent in markets and bazaars in Mexico, Turkey, Iran, Israel, Greece, Morocco and Spain.
