Forbes - The Organized Consumer - How To Respond To This Holiday’s Growing Retail Trend

Rob Sieban - CEO, United Flea Markets

Shoppers are planning ahead more than ever this holiday season and are stretching their dollars as far as they can. In a recent article in Forbes Magazine, Jill Standish wrote about how some shoppers are getting creative this year, buying crafting materials and making homemade gifts this season. She also shares the consumer's desire for more from the holiday shopping experience. That could mean eating before, during, or after shopping, or, in the case of a flea market, letting the kids hop on a ride or enjoying a hot chocolate or specialty beverage while browsing.

Flea markets, including many of our 15 United Flea Markets
properties across the country, are an ideal place to find unique, one-of-a-kind materials like vintage jars, baskets, fabrics, craft supplies, and more for making gifts. Our markets offer fun and authentic experiences as people seek options to get back to shopping in person after the pandemic disruptions of the past few years.

If you’re looking for a unique shopping experience, one-of-a-kind gifts, and low prices, consider supporting the small businesses at your local flea market this holiday season.
