Tips for Shoppers
1.  Bring a list of what you are looking for so that you can focus on searching for those items.
2.  If you are looking for a large piece of furniture, don't forget to bring an old blanket, tie-down rope and a red flag so that you can transport it home.
3.  Shop smart and shop quickly by bringing plenty of $1 and $5 bills.
4.  If you see something you like, pick it up while you decide whether or not to purchase it.  Otherwise, another buyer may pick it up and buy it out from under you.
5.  Don't be afraid to bargain down the price if you feel it's too high.  .  .  it's all part of the fun!
6.  Get better deals by buying in bulk.  Group your purchases together and offer the seller one price for the lot.
7.  If there is something you want that is out of your price range, give the seller your contact information and let them know that if the item isn't sold at the end of the day, your offer still stands.
