Ever stand at the fridge door and KNOW that you just saw the ketchup....right there? Or the car keys that you are sure were just in your hand...and now they are no where to be found? Keep looking and you know you will find them....
You may feel that way in Booth 58 if you are a frequent shopper... And you KNOW you just saw a cool piece right there.... How could it be gone already?
Lesson from Booth 58: Keep Looking
We move things around a lot.
Another trend we've noted: If we move things around ("shake it up") in the booth, things sell better.
Sometimes, customers come in and say "Oh no, it's gone! It was just here yesterday." And then they start the Buy Now, Cry Later ugly cry. And then we say, "Oh no. It's not gone! We just moved it over here."
We try to give Booth 58 a good "shake" at least once a month... So, when you come in to buy that special piece that you knew was right there... Keep Looking!
After almost 6 years of this business, we have noticed some trends....
Lessons from Booth 58:
The new stuff sells:
Buy now or Cry Later
For our Faithful B58 Shoppers, we try hard to reach our inventory goal ...
At least 40 new items in every 10 days
So, that brings me back to the lesson... The new stuff sells. After a full day of shopping and fluffin' we laugh about the things that sell within a few days.... Our fresh junk sells fast.
(That means we are on the constant lookout for great new old stuff for you! Yall keep us on our toes!)
If you see something you can't live without, buy now... because someone else might be right behind you that loves it too!
P.S. - Another reason that some of our stuff sells so fast is because Booth 58 has great prices! Antique Company Mall vendors have great prices all around... Make a trip up to McKinney to see the deals ...or you may be crying later.
