Default yard sale vs flea market

Curiosity question. For someone who is selling clothes, holiday decor, household goods, shoes, furniture, ect., basically a moving sale, which would be more beneficial? Yard sale or a flea market? Thank you

It depends on how comfortable you are hauling that stuff around. At the flea market, you'll probably have more interested people with cash in their pocket. Yard sales attract a lot of browsers. Saturday's Market in Middletown is a good place to start, though you'll want to arrive no later than 4am to stand a chance at a decent outdoor spot.

Either way, be prepared for hagglers.

Thanks for the info!! I was thinking about going to the Williamsgrove flea market. They said every vendor needs to have a PA Tax something or other. I guess they all require that.
