Flea Market

Have you ever thought of setting up a stall in a flea market? Many years ago, me and a group of friends toyed with the idea of setting up a stall in a flea market, the rental fee was about S$45 a day. My friend suggested selling second hand clothings at the stall, and after discussing, finally we decided that this will be what we will do at the stall (ie. selling second hand clothes).

We sorted out all the second hand clothings that we can get from our house and with the help of another friend and his boyfriend, he fetched us to the flea market venue in his car.

After trying, we realised that it was not easy running a business and selling stuff. After a day's hard work, we did not make any profit and just managed to breakeven only.

It was a fun experience at the flea market and it made us realise that it is easier to work for someone rather than be your own boss. Indeed it is really not easy running your own business.
