Girl who dances in a cage

I want to host a goth/steampunk flea market in the studio - how can I make this work?

I would like to use my dance studio to host a one time goth/steampunk rummage sale. Basically an indoor garage sale where everyday people (not professional vendors) can come and sell their used stuff from their closets all flea market style. I would like to be able to do this at no charge to the people vending since they will be selling their things cheap. But I do have one major problem: I don't have card tables to set up for them to display their stuff or any portable rolling racks. The clothing racks cost about $20 and the card tables cost about $30, so I wouldn't be able to let people vend free of charge if I purchased these items. And I don't expect people to want to pay $30 (for a table) just to sell stuff garage sale style. And I don't imagine people are going to want to pile their items on the floor and sell them that way either.

Renting some place else for the sale (that already has tables) would force me to charge vendors to cover the cost and would discourage regular non professional vendor people from vending at the sale. So that wouldn't work either. How can I make this work?
