As a vendor, I understand the worries of selling at a market that you’ve never sold at before. I’ve heard about other vendors getting ripped off, and I’ve personally sold at unsuccessful markets where traffic was low. Little to no marketing was done to promote the market nor its vendors. But, I've also heard of awesome markets where they were well organized and had a lot of traffic. I know some of my fellow vendors have participated in The Trinity Bellwoods Flea before, but many haven't. Since I've sold there a couple of times now, I thought I'd write up a review of my experiences over on my blog.
