Feedback – Your suggestions continue to be very important to us, our goal is to run one of the best fishing flea markets in New Jersey and your input will help us do that. We continue to act on your feedback.
Customer parking and flow – It is important we supply parking and easy access to the show. The VFW lot is large and we need to park vendor and Hi-Mar member vehicles in the rear. This allows people attending easy access to the entry of the VFW. The committee will monitor vendor parking and if vendors refuse to move their vehicles, those vendors will NOT be asked back!
Diversity of speakers – We will provide an informative, educational and entertaining seminar series. As a vendor if you have an item of good value that relates to the seminar, provide a sample and we will endorse the product at the intro of that seminar.
No used tackle and the same vendors I see at every flea market – It has been our goal to provide a used tackle show. We will always try to find a space for that guy cleaning out the garage or the person that has sold his boat. If you know someone with used tackle send him our way we will offer him a table. Vendors do a little extra for our show, offer one item at a great value. If people depart the show with at least one value chances are they will be back and the word of a “good show” will spread.
The vendors and their friends get all the good buys before the door opens – In the past we have had this problem, people entering the show early with vendors, buying good values then departing before the doors open and the crowd arrives. Vendors must realize that this will not be allowed and their friends are going to cost them their spot at the show. When vendors are caught for this breach of conduct, they are either warned or not invited back. Vendor wrist bands will be issued and checked.
