Sellers in street markets throughout the Netherlands were expecting to earn 240 million euros on Queen's Day (Koninginnedag) today.
The ING bank, which came up with the figure, asked many Dutch adults if they intended to put up objects for sale and, if so, how much they expected to earn.
According to the investigation, 2.5 million Dutch people planned to set up stalls on the streets and, if their expectations prove correct, will have earned 20 percent more than they did last year.
