Did you see an article in the Post about a somber, bleak flea market near Lake Worth High School?

Did you read the depressing news about that open-air flea market here in the City of Lake Worth?

Do you know why that flea market cannot boost sales? There are two big reasons and one of them is World Thrift. Learn more about that below.

Can you imagine any flea market not being successful after the City of Lake Worth’s 12-page “SPECIAL KEEPSAKE SERIES” (see below) was published by The Palm Beach Post just a short while ago? Why didn’t that flea market take advantage of all that FREE publicity county-wide in the Sunday paper?

People far and wide are still talking about that Special Feature. Delray Beach has never gotten a special “KEEPSAKE” published and neither has West Palm Beach, Wellington, Boynton Beach or even Jupiter. Palm Beach Gardens never got one either. But the City of Lake Worth did.

Why? Find out below.

That “SPECIAL KEEPSAKE” was full of information, advice (learn about the “Five Tips” below), and tips that would help any flea market to soar and boost sales.
Do you know why that “KEEPSAKE” was published? One reason was the “Five Tips” everyone had been studying: the business community, neighborhood groups, and nonprofits too.

So why don’t organizers running that flea market know about these “Five Tips”? Everybody else does.

The beat reporter for Lake Worth knows about these tips because they were published by the business editor. Is there anyone available at the Post to teach these tips to the organizers of that flea market?

The other problem is this flea market is going head to head in competition with the world-famous and spectacularly popular World Thrift (located at 2425 N. Dixie Hwy; call 561-588-4050 for daily hours and more information). Read the reviews on Facebook. Awesome.

Why go to an outside flea market when you can browse the incredible selections and prices at World Thrift? It’s air-conditioned and has plenty of FREE PARKING.

The staff at World Thrift is very courteous and helpful. They have English/Spanish speakers always strolling the wide aisles to help customers. And did you know Thursday is senior-citizen day! You won’t believe the people you’ll recognize shopping there.

Hopefully soon the flea market organizers will come up with a workable plan and learn how to promote it as well.

“Lake Worth is truly the place ‘where the tropics begin’ and the fun never ends.”
“Lake Worth is a dynamic, multi-cultural city with a strong social and environmental consciousness. People are drawn to the city by its independent character, acceptance of different cultures. . .

. . . and maybe even a flea market some time soon with new organizers.
