Closeout Merchandise Fundraiser
Description: Catalog sale involving buying merchandise at a heavy discount from retail price. Works best with slim selection of popular items, not a large catalog offering too many choices.
Best Suited For: All
Prospective Customers: All, flea market buyers especially like this
Comments: Can offer some great deals. Watch out for out-of-stock situations. Some suppliers will supply items on consignment for an event version of this.
Feel Good Rating: Two stars
