I am going to visit my family in PHX for Thanksgiving. Apparently there is a very busy weekly flea market there. My dad said that it's only 10 bucks and that I can can book a spot as late as the day before. Soooo....I want to get something set up out there. I will be there all day Friday before the market opens on Saturday and Sunday. Any advice on a travel friendly set-up? I don't want to sacrifice too much flash, but I doubt I'll be able to take much of a pitch joint with me on the plane. I am filling up one suitcase that is just below "oversized" rating. I will need to carry all inventory in that suitcase as well.

Also, part of the reason I'm doing this is because a family member is interested in doing this on a regular basis out there, so I am asking him to get a vendor's license. Anyone aware of any issues?

Thanks

If you're going to do business in another state that has sales tax, I think you will need to get a "resale license" from that State too, and be required to collect and pay sales tax to that state.

When you said that you were getting a "vendor's license," is this what you were referring to?

As for packing, I'd go with a 3' x 6' banner as an essential, and it should roll up pretty small. Even a 2' x 6' is better than nothing. I think Bill's setup had a couple different size banners you could use.

You can probably pick up a good inexpensive pitch table at a Sam's Club or Costco or whatever on location, so you don't have to haul it around. SETH

What flee are you going to be setting up at? I have a Zibit I would like to take out and I am kind of in the same boat. I could check out the location and let you know what I find. I know one flee here has awnings all over and a tent wont really be needed. You can PM if you would like...

Seth,
Yes, the vendor's license is what I have here in Ohio to pay taxes on my sales. I was planning on buying a cheap table when I got there.

Fitz, Not sure what market. I'll PM you when I find out more details.

Ok, so I packed 6 dozen decks, 100+ worms, and a bunch of TCMs. Sadly, I'm going to have to figure out all the flash when I get there.

Garland from the local dollar store or walmart will add lots of flash for little cash and add even more to the christmas spending mood. While there, grab a few cheap stockings for display too. GTFM!!!
