Second hand market…..Mercado de segunda mano

A flea market (or swap meet) is a type of bazaar that rents space to people who want to sell or barter merchandise. Used goods, low quality items, and high quality items at low prices are commonplace. Many markets offer fresh produce, unique products and plants from local farms. Renters of the flea market are vendors. It may be indoors, as in a warehouse or school gymnasium; or outdoors, as in a field or parking lot or under a tent. Flea markets can be held annually or semiannually, others may be conducted monthly, on weekends, or daily. Flea-market vendors may range from a family that is renting a table for the first time to sell a few unwanted household items, to scouts who rove the region buying items for sale from garage sales and other flea markets, and several staff watching the stalls. Flea market vending is distinguished from street vending in that the market itself, and not any other public attraction, brings in buyers. Many flea markets have food vendors who sell snacks and drinks to the patrons, Some flea market vendors have been targeted by law enforcement efforts to halt the sale of bootleg movies and music or knockoff brand clothing, accessories, or fragrances.

En sentido material y físico, el término segunda mano viene referido a objetos que ya han sido utilizados o bien han sido poseídos por otra u otras personas. En torno a este uso, se han generado diferentes tipos de mercado, referentes sobre todo a una serie de productos y artículos determinados. Los objetos de segunda mano se suelen devaluar por su antigüedad, estado y en muchas ocasiones solamente por el hecho de no ser nuevo y haber sido estrenado con anterioridad a dicho usuario que lo adquiere. En otras ocasiones los artículos de segunda mano pueden llegar a incrementar su precio, debido a antigüedad (objetos realmente antiguos, que no se fabrican o venden en ninguna parte). A veces el mero hecho de haber pertenecido a alguien famoso o importante, puede incrementar el precio en porcentajes astronómicos
