SVT Sörmland reported last autumn that it had seen an increase in sales of used goods in Sörmland. A trend that seems to be hanging in, at least if you look at the turnout at Torshargshallen on Saturday.
"People have been a little worried after the pandemic when we had to break and not run the flea market, if people are going to come back to the flea market. They definitely do. We see that it is really increasing in interest. That it will be more popular to shop second-hand, says Jannica Sjöstedt, founder of Föreningen Omtanke which arranges the flea market.
106 sellers were allowed to bring up to 300 products and they usually receive around 2000 visitors over the two days that the children's flea market takes place, according to Jannica Sjöstedt. The association Omtanke is a non-profit association and the surplus, says Jannica Sjöstedt, goes further into the business, to the association's other charity projects in Eskilstuna municipality.
"Has been raised a lot lately on everything so nothing is fun to shop" – hear some visitors and the organizer about the children's flea market in Torshälla.
