Review on What is a Flea Market, Swap Meet, Barn Sale?

According to Google - Flea markets are markets where multiple vendors gather to sell merchandise. They set up and sell their goods from designated spaces called booths or stalls, which they rent from the flea market owners or organizers. ... And, many flea markets offer both new and used goods.

Because of the amount of flea markets that are now available, many will specialize in what they are selling. Some will only allow sales of vintage items and others will only allow fruits and vegetables and baked goods. But most flea markets are a combination of many different items and goods both used and new. And flea markets are held outdoors, indoors and a combination of both. Vendors work their own booths and communicate directly with their customers and their purchases. There are flea markets that are permanent and the merchant leasing the booth does not have to stay and deal with customers. All purchases will be handled in a central location with the owner of the market running the cash register and the accounting. Usually, the accounting department will pay the merchants monthly.

Now, a swap meet is a bit different than a flea market. Again, Google defines a swap meet as a gathering at which enthusiasts or collectors trade or exchange items of common interest. So, you can go to a swap meet that is designed to have things that you want and you can trade or swap with someone your stuff for theirs. Many swap meets have changed things to make it easier to get what you want by allowing the attendees to buy items and not just trade them.

A vintage show is where everything is old and collectible and is unique. It includes furniture and dishes and even clothes. Vintage shows are based on the love of nostalgia and is usually held in large outdoor areas such as fairgrounds and raceways. Items sold are not quite antiques in their age but are dated enough to bring back memories. Many items sold are repurposed, re-styled and upcycled.
