The creation of a market

Flea market

How is a marketplace created? What does it take for two people to start a conversation about buying or selling an object? (Markets are conversations, right?) Blankets on the ground? Objects on the blankets? Price tags?

Do we change our state of mind when we enter a marketplace?

The picture is from a flea market for children last summer. The market opened in the morning and closed late in the afternoon.
