Are you always tinkering around with things? Do you know how to fix or modify something without breaking it? Then here's your niche in a flea market setting -- alteration services! Set up a booth and offer potential customers the opportunity to bring something to you and get it improved for your fee. Not sure what this all means? Here are a few examples of alteration services you can offer.
For those who are handy with a needle and thread, and who may have an eye for fashion in general, clothing alterations can be a great way to pick up some extra money. Set up a booth with some examples of clothes you've altered; if you can, get before and after photographs so potential customers can see the differences you made. Take your sewing supplies with you, including any sorts of accessories you might use, like buttons or patches.
Were you one of those children who took electronic gifts apart just to see how they worked? If you're still that way today, electronics upgrades and repairs may be just the side business for you. Advertise your booth with some description of the kinds of upgrades and repairs you're skilled in, using images if possible to draw more attention to your services. Be sure your tools are all with you every time you go to the flea market
Your passion may be the written word, including the proper use thereof. Editing services are often found online, but it's difficult to have a personal touch in the editing process when there are two computer screens between the editor and the client. Offer to edit a variety of types of writing, and entice people in by emphasizing that they are paying for a one-on-one session rather than an impersonal red pen.
You don't have to be a child to love playing with toys! Customized toys are actually a popular collectible, and if you have the magic touch to make amazing toys to a customer's standard, you can offer this service from your flea market booth. Depending on how much business you get in a day, you may want to offer same-day service for an extra fee.
Not sure that the flea market is the venue for you? What about a garage sale? You can sell your items or your services at a garage sale, and list it for free for others to locate at our homepage.
