Not quite sure how it came about, we just kind of did it. We’ve been wishful thinking about doing something like this for years.
It’s a newly opened antique mall, still accepting vendors. It’s in a huge old building with really cool architecture. There’s even a filming crew there from the show Banshee. They use part of the building for their show. More importantly, we got a great deal on the booth, are able to rent month to month, so if we end up not liking it, or we don’t do well, or it’s just not fun, we’re not locked in to a big commitment.
Now we just have to fill up our space with items, and price them. We both love to DIY and have things ready to sell. That’s the easy part. Pricing is the hard part.
This will be our challenge. I’m sure after a while, we will have more confidence pricing the things we sell. But when you put your heart and soul in making a piece of furniture beautiful, or unique, what is that worth? I don’t know.
Soooo, if anyone would like to share some words of wisdom on renting an antique mall booth and/or how to price items, I’m all ears!
