Our variety booth mall
is very unique. It is home to a number of dealers of antiques, vintage, and collectible items, as well as arts, crafts, and
home accessories. Shoppers love the environment and the selection inside our mall, and we recieve positive comments from both
shoppers and dealers on a daily basis.
The mall allows dealers to display their merchandise in a comfortable,
secure, and smoke-free indoor climate-controlled environment. The parking area and mall are located so as to make shopping
easily accessible to everyone.
There are no required dealer workdays, so once your booth is set-up, you can go
about your daily life confident that we and our staff will work for you every day of the week providing security, customer
assistance, and sales suppport.
You are asked to visit your booth at least monthly to restock
and rearrange, although we find that those who visit weekly to service their booth seem to have more success (generally speaking).
All inventory and sales transactions are
computerized, and you will receive a detailed report each month with your settlement check. There are currently no local
requirements for business licenses.
We advertise regularly in local newspapers, regional industry-specific publications, flyers placed
in other malls and shops, and various other methods, as well as maintaining an Internet site for the mall, which you are now
