Whether you call it a swap meet, a flea market or yard sale there are plenty bargains to be had outside of the traditional brick and mortar type of retail stores. There have been many stories in the press about treasures found at a yard sale that turn out to be priceless objects of art or pieces of history. Most of us are just looking for good deal. Spending the weekend touring through the idyllic Monterey and Santa Cruz neighborhoods could have you overwhelmed with the opportunities of all the flea markets available to bargain hunt. One of the most popular in the Santa Cruz area is the Skyview flea market. No matter where you end up you should keep these helpful hints in mind especially if you’re shopping for a big item like furniture.
Don’t be afraid to haggle. Just because someone has a price tag on an object like a dining room table or sofa doesn’t mean that’s the price they’ll accept. Part of the fun shopping at yard sale is negotiating for a price. You might also find that the later in the day the better bargain you’ll have. That’s because these vendors don’t want to go home without cash in the pocket. And if they have a piece of furniture or other items they are selling on their front yard then they probably don’t want to drag them back into the house.
This brings up the issue of transportation. Many of these flea markets are a kind of cash and carry type of business. When you buy something you’re expected to take it away. However, you might also be able to bargain with the vendor to have them deliver the large item you just bought. Obviously they brought that piece in a truck and since you can’t take it home in your SUV you need to make other arrangements otherwise you can find that. Walking away from the sale gives you a lot of power!
Although you might be able to get a flea market vendor to drop off a big item chances are they’re not going to take away your old furniture. That’s why you need to have a professional team of junk haulers like Junk King Monterey standing by. While it’s true that you don’t know what you’re going to find when you go out on a flea market tour that doesn’t mean you can’t be proactive when it comes to setting up the removal of your old junk. Of course, you could always flip that idea as well. For instance, you could make an appointment with Junk King’s professional team of junk haulers to come by your home on a Saturday and take away all your unwanted furniture. They can also haul off any other kind of junk you might want to get rid of in the same trip. That could free up plenty of space for you to fill up the next day during your flea markets scavenger hunt!
