Stand owner and Danish Citizen, Sara Seremet, spoke about how easy it was to apply for a stand to sell her belongings, she stated, “I seen the event posted on Facebook and went onto the website ‘Markedsbooking.dk’ to register and apply, and that was it.’’

Flea markets are beneficial for those who are looking for bargains or to see and learn the local culture and lifestyle. Also, for the stand owners to sell their unwanted products and make money.

“2/3 of the items of clothing I brought here this morning have already been sold”, Sara confirmed.
