I think my entire antique mall booth selling strategy is an attempt to deal with all the “stuff” that I would like to get rid of. In two separate booths about an hour away from each other along I-95 I’ve stocked the shelves with books, axes, ceramics, and hung lots of uniform shirts and jackets. I could probably fill another 10×10 in another town but that is probably not a winning strategy.

It really isn’t cheaper to put stuff in an antique mall than it is to list on eBay. Both charge 10% commission and a fee for having a “store”. One has an unlimited audience and one relies on foot traffic that is mostly uninterested in what I’ve got. So far having the booth has only landed me one minor collection where somebody who found my booth reached out to me. So really the only perk is that individually listing items on eBay is so painstaking that it’s much easier to throw it on a shelf and let it ride.

At one point Todd Kelly told me that having your stuff in an antique mall booth was better than paying for storage somewhere because at least it’s up for sale. I don’t know if there is a seller on eBay in our category that has listed hundreds of uniform shirts, a thousand books and lots of 3D pieces. So I’ll toss that to the readers – can you point me to an eBay seller that essentially has an “antique booth” on eBay in terms of the items I’ve mentioned?

The big sale running in my eBay store is 25% off on all CSPs, and SAPs. I’ve got over 2,000 unique issues in stock and this discount is good for the next few days so check it out.
