I've actually been thinking about the flea market venue. I used to go there to sell gaming equipment for a company I worked for, but couldn't figure out how to make magic work in that environment. After seeing it in print though, it's very easy. When ever I thought about it, I instantly made it much more difficult than it should be. Thanks for the great essay.

Shouldn't be a problem, however I don't do busking type material. Plus I move A LOT to stay up with crowds. My goal is to perform the same set of tricks the max number, for the max amount of people, in the shortest amount of time. Lately I've been tweaking my patter and suspense.

Although the venue is easily customizable to whatever goal you choose.

Once I get my Kodak Zi8, I'll do a video tutorial on what I do.

Are you really allowed to just set up a table anywhere you want at a flea market?

Yes and no, depends on the management and rules. Check your local ones to see if they assign you a spot, or if it's first come/first serve for table placement.

I know this forum has long since died but that is a great training exercise.
