Flea Market Business Wholesale Website Offers Strategies, Tips and Ideas for Flea Market Vendors
Donny Lowy, the CEO of Closeoutexplosion.com has published an online flea market resource for flea market vendors:
A flea market business wholesale website published by CloseoutExplosion.com, a New York clothing wholesaler located in Brooklyn, offers free access to flea market strategies, business ideas, tips, and wholesale resources for flea market vendors. The web site is published by Donny Lowy, an entrepreneur who started his wholesale and closeout business career by selling at the Queens New York Aqueduct flea market before he launched Closeout Explosion.
Based on his experience selling at New York and New Jersey flea markets, and his interaction with many American swap meet vendors, market sellers in Africa, and wholesalers that supply flea market products, he has published practical and informative articles that can help people considering selling at a flea market, or are already experienced vendors. What makes the information unique and helpful is that it is based on actual personal experience and interaction with vendors who made money at flea markets.
His flea market business online guide offers tips on important topics such as:
- Why You Should Be A Vendor At A New Flea Market
- How You Can Profit By Helping Local Businesses Sell Their Overstock At Flea Markets
- Learn How To Attract Shoppers To Your Flea Market Booth
- Strategies That Can Help You Make Real Money At Flea Markets

“What makes the flea market business so appealing for many people, including those who are unemployed, is that the barrier to entry is very low, so pretty much anyone with a small budget can rent a flea market stall, and immediately start making money from his or her first day. Even if a flea market seller cannot afford to buy closeout merchandise from a wholesale supplier, he or she can start by selling used and unwanted clothing, electronics, and gifts that are in the person’s home. And since many flea market suppliers such as my New York clothing warehouse, have no minimum, even someone on a limited budget can start right away,” commented Donny Lowy, who also exports and wholesales brand name clothing, shoes, and handbags to international buyers located in Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago, and in other countries.
Donny added, “There are many places such as in Nigeria and Trinidad, where a professional will spend their free time selling wholesale products in an open market environment. Not only is it socially acceptable, but it is admired since entrepreneurship, as it is in the United States, is highly admired. Provided that a vendor understands the reasons why flea market shoppers buy, she can have a successful weekend or full time retail business.
There are many flea markets that attract thousands of shoppers, which is why you will see some vendors traveling across the US to set up flea market booths at various events. In addition, there is also plenty of money to be made as a street vendor. Among the most popular flea markets is the Alameda Flea Market in California, Brimfield Antique Show and Flea Market in Massachusetts, Brooklyn Flea, Daytona Flea and Farmers Market in Florida, First Monday Trade Days in Canton Texas, and the Green Flea in Manhattan.
The online flea market guide also provides links to flea market books to help further a vendor’s swap meet business. In addition, the address of the wholesale flea market warehouse is listed so that vendors can visit to make their own product selection, and receive free flea market advice from Donny Lowy.
