One thing to think about is how much do you need to make per day to make it worthwhile spending your saturdays and sundays waking up at 6am to go to the flear market and spending the majority of the day there? I think that should be a starting point and work on your pricing from there.

Cuzies are a popular item I think those should sell pretty well. Phone cases are a good seller but too many people have them. Tshirts go easy so if you can find tshirts or hoodies cheap like misprints or imperfections and get them for cheap and sell for a buck a shirt those should go well.

I used to buy storage units at auction. There's a good way to get lots of merch for real cheap, you can have like a 0.50 cent bin everything in the bin 0.50. You'll have lots of people sorting through and will attract other buyers. That's a nice way to supplement the other stuff your selling.

You want to sell something you make yourself. It has to be affordable because people who go to flea markets are frugal.

Back in the 80s my aunt made tshirts with like indian type cut tassles on the bottom with beads and sold well. She'd buy cheap shirts cheap beads and make a decent profit. SOme people do well with cornhole games or birdfeeders. That said most stuff at flea markets is not handmade stuff, many people sell knockoff purses, phone chargers, phone cases, used stuff, etc.
