When my husband Charlie and I first got married. We use to set up stands 7 days a week. We traveled to Delaware, up state Pennsylvania and New Jersey.We had stands to sell our wares,mostly antiques,sometimes just odds and ends. Sometimes my sisters,Rosie and Maryann would go with us. We all had a good time. We also went to 4 or 5 auctions a week,to buy our merchandise(antiques). This way we would have different items to sell. And it would keep our customer happy with all the different items.We made pretty good money each day,but their are pros and cons,for everything. It was a lot of work,packing and unpacking. Setting up the tables,not counting all the long drives to and from,we drove a lot of distances every day.Finally after doing this for about 4 years,we both decided on renting a store.,and staying stable. We still went to the auctions to buy,but once we unpacked the items from the auctions,it stayed until it was sold.
