Part of the fun of going to a flea market is that you can try to haggle and get the best price for an item. Before you start making deals, there are a few things that you should know about haggling. First, a seller never puts the lowest price they will take on the price tag because they are expecting you to try to talk them down. So do not be shy and just remember they are expecting it. You should also try to haggle closer to the end of the day, when the seller may be more anxious to sell an item.
Most of the deals that you make at a flea market will be with a no return policy, so be sure you thoroughly examine the item before your purchase it. If you see any blemishes or markings point that out to the seller and try to get the price lowered. It is also common practice at most flea markets and the Stormville Flea Market is no different that you must pay for your items with cash only. Very few sellers are willing to accept checks because of the extra risk involved.
