I work these events alone most of the time so I have what looks like a nail apron that I ware to hold all my cash. My wife made it for me. I use sand bags with about 20 pounds of pea gravel in them to hold down my tent corners attached with bungees. I also sand bag down my tables that have tall shelves clamped to them. (It gets windy here in West Texas.) I do not accept checks but do take credit cards. 80% of my sales are still cash but then I am selling a lot of items for less than $20 each. Yes by all means engage potential buyers. A simple hello with eye contact will do it. Oh yes I take $100 in 5’s and 1’s with me, and my sellers (sales tax) permit.
