Where Would You Rather Be: Outdoors Mulching Or Junking At A Juicy Flea Market ?

What Is The Mulch Phenomenon: And How Does It Impact On The Antique Shopper ?

If you own an Antique shop or are an Antique dealer in an Antique Mall or outdoor Flea Market, do you notice a drop in business during the early Spring weeks when  people are outdoors cleaning up their property?

I call this the Mulch Phenomenon, a noticiable dip in biz when the snow is gone and the yard needs work. You would think that the warmer weather ( especially in the Northeast) would bring hunters and shoppers out of their caves and into our stores and markets, but that is not always the case.

Time To Go Out Antiquing...The Lawn Can Wait
I chuckle everytime someone makes a promise to try to deal with their lawn and flower issues earlier each year than they actually do. Kinda hard to split Hosta plants with a blanket of ya think?    

And will someone please tell me the purpose of blowing off the leaves from your  lawn when leaves from your neighbor's lawn come right back over to your lawn to take the place of your blown off leaves.

It's Flea Market Time

O.K., it's time to go antiquing.....readers where would you rather be outdoors mulching or browsing an exciting   Antique Mall or outdoors at a juicy Flea Market?
