Back to School Product Roundup FLEA MARKET vendors can expect parents to shop and spend more during the upcoming back-to-school season than they did last year, according to ShopperTrak. National retail sales are expected to rise 4.3 percent in August 2013 over the same period last year. Vendors eager to jump on these expanding back to school budgets should consider carrying some of the essentials as well as trending merchandise. Predictably, consumers will need writing utensils, paper, notebooks, backpacks, lunch boxes and apparel, and vendors who stock these staples stand to profit. In addition, as technology infiltrates schools of every grade level, the desire for fashionable cell phone cases, flash drives, calculators and LED notebooks will continue to increase. Hot trends include clothes and supplies in neon colors and branded items tied to the “Monsters University” movie and boy band One Direction. Vendors can draw customers into their booths by carrying and spotlighting items they are selling for under $1. Also put trending items up front where it will catch your shoppers’ eyes. Here is a round up of products and supplies many sellers are carrying to help you stock up for back to school sales.

markers, notebooks, paper and scissors, many of which wholesale for well under $1. Backpacks and computer accessories, such as laptop holders, are also in demand. “Laptop holders have been doing really well, and vendors are refilling their shelves,” Barton notes. While retail prices vary by location, a good markup that still allows vendors to remain competitive is 20 to 25 percent, he states. It is easy to review CKB Products’ merchandise along with wholesale pricing. From the company’s homepage, click on “Bulk Opportunity Buys,” and then choose “School and Office Supplies.”

Pens, markers and laptop holders

For vendors who want to stock up on the latest and most popular backpacks, Leather Links offers a broad selection of designs and styles. In order to meet the needs of all school age children, from preschool to college, the company has several lines of fashion and licensed backpacks, including Disney. Popular sellers include Hello Kitty, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Spiderman and Dora the Explorer. Several styles

CKB Products, a wholesale distributor that sells merchandise for 40 to 90 percent below retail, has a wide variety of back to school supplies. “We have just about every product needed to fill back to school supply kits,” says Chris Barton, owner.

In addition to clothing, World Liquidators’ vast inventory includes shoes, domestics and bedding, general merchandise, kitchenware, housewares, furniture, sporting goods and seasonal products. Items are sold by the piece, pallet, lot or load. “No order is too small,” Winkoff stresses. Clothing starts at $1 apiece, shoes start at $3 a pair and denim starts at $2 apiece. Pallets of clothing are sold at the piece price. “Each pallet’s contents are counted by hand, and the quantity is noted on the pallet. If someone needs around 2,500 pieces of clothing, we will look at pallets and add the numbers to get them close to that.”

Value pricing, vast profits As for markup, or profit potential, the sky is the limit, Winkoff adds. Vendors will find, in the same pallet, items with $5 and $150 retail tags. To make merchandise attractive to their consumers, vendors can price their items under the tagged amounts and still make a good profit. “We do everything on the up and up,” Winkoff explains. “I have had loads come in that are sold to me as returns, but they have tags and look brand new. I will still sell the load as returns because it was sold to me that way.” World Liquidators has a 35,000 square foot warehouse in Pompano Beach, FL, and vendors are welcome to stop in and look around. “Most of continued on page 52

the pallets are in open boxes, and they can go through the pallets to see what is inside,” Winkoff shares. “If people cannot come down to see us, we will email them product pictures and details.” To further accommodate vendors’ individual needs, World Liquidators offers multiple shipping options. In addition to shipping merchandise from its warehouse, the company allows vendors to arrange their own shipping or bring a truck to the building. “We have ten loading bays and multiple forklifts,” Winkoff continues. “My guys will wheel the pallets outside, help vendors break them down and hand stack products into their vehicles.” World Liquidators

also has a large, multi-lingual sales force that includes associates who speak English, Spanish and various other languages. ■

MORE AND more flea market managers are recognizing the opportunities social media offers to increase business at their venues.

First, make sure you have a Facebook business page, not a personal page. You want â&#x20AC;&#x153;likesâ&#x20AC;? not â&#x20AC;&#x153;friends.â&#x20AC;? Check to be sure your page is updated with all your business information in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aboutâ&#x20AC;?

section, including address, hours of operation, phone number, website and email address. Ask market goers to recommend you. If they love your market, they will want to share their experience with others. It is not enough just to tell shoppers you are on Facebook. Go the extra mile and offer them a card with your Facebook URL on it. Check your Facebook page regularly and make a connection with your customers. When they post something nice, thank them. Ensure visitor engagement by liking, recommending, commenting and checking in. continued on page 58

If it is, try to get recommendations. Search on your type of business to see who is there. Be in the mind of the searcher to determine what keywords shoppers use. Be sure some of those keywords are in your description as well as in your reviews. You can ask friends, family members and staff who are customers to include those keywords in their reviews to bump you up in the search results. Add photos, as they are hugely important to drawing traffic. Consumers want to see your market and the ambience before they visit.

Google+ Local Google+ is a great place for information on flea markets. You can see reviews, upload photos, and get place recommendations based on circles, location and past reviews. First, try to locate your business by searching for your phone number. If you do not see a listing for your market, add your business to Google+. Include details about your market, as more information will attract more shoppers. Ask people to review your market. There is a verification process whereby Google might call or email you a pin number that you need to enter on the site to confirm you are the business owner. Once you set up Facebook, Yelp and Google+ accounts, be sure to monitor them and keep visitors engaged. Fresh information and photos, and lots of them, are great ways to draw traffic from social media to your market. â&#x2013;

Some of the best avenues to find suppliers include: 1. Salesmen 2.Shopping the competition 3. Trade and crafts shows 4. Trade publications 5. Trade organizations or buying groups 6.Other vendors 7. The Web

Start by analyzing your suppliers Determine who is your biggest supplier and why. Is it because of product, pricing or service? Chances are it is all three. While the most important single criterion is the product and its appeal to your customers, pricing has to be fair in relation to the product and its competition. If the product has brand name recognition that can enhance your customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view of your booth for quality or fashion forwardness, this provides added value. The consistency and quality of the product is also of great importance. The service you receive is also crucial and there are many factors to consider. These include product availability, complete and on-time deliveries, and product marketing. Other elements to consider are whether or not a supplier offers demonstrations, sales meetings or closeouts, or pre-tickets or counts your merchandise. If a supplier offers special terms or allowances, this is a plus. Examples include discounts for cash payments, large quantities, opening orders or a promotion, and allowances for advertising, guaranteed sale or prepaid freight. continued on page 66

Finally, one of the most important areas suppliers can add value is by sharing their understanding and insight into the business. Most suppliers, especially manufacturers, know a tremendous amount about their business and are more than happy to answer questions about it. These are all considerations when evaluating the effectiveness of your suppliers, and they can help you identify who excels and which are in need of improvement. Remember, your merchandise is only as good as your stable of suppliers. ■ Joanna “Jody” Bradshaw served as a senior merchan-
