|Trying to extend the Mod Lodge Vintage brand with signage and tags|
I contemplated for a long time about whether to rent a flea market/antique store booth. I always liked the idea of being able to display items (merchandising) and also, having a place to take bigger items or items that wouldn't sell for enough to make it worth the effort on eBay. And, I have soooo much stuff. Really, it is taking over my basement. Finally, last summer I took the plunge. It was a disaster. The person who owned the flea market basically skipped town without paying anyone. I didn't lose much as I had only rented there for a couple of months but she still owed my over $100 plus the loss of merchandise and the rental fee. Some people lost over $1000 - ouch! I was wary to try it again, as I am sure you can understand.

|Lower shelves and floor - probably needs a little work|
|I saved those 1970's National Geographic magazines from a|
dumpster and I got the metal display stand for $10
|I have a thing for metal milk crates - they're not for sale|
but they make great holders and display pieces!
I am linking to Apron Thrift Girl's February Resellers Listing Challenge - even though this isn't actual listing items on the internet, it also inspired me to try again.
