WHY BECOME AN ANTIQUES/COLLECTIBLES DEALER?

If any of the following sounds familiar, then you should consider joining the dealers at
Midway Mall.

  • My collection has gotten out of hand; it's time to liquidate and reclaim my spare
    bedroom and/or garage.
  • I've tried selling online.  It's risky, frustrating, time-consuming; and I don't like
    paying the auction fees,
    chasing down money, handling complaints and refunds,
    or inviting strangers to my house.
  • I need some extra cash and have a lot of nice things to sell but don't have the
    time or money or desire to
    run my own shop full time.
  • I inherited a bunch of stuff that I don't want but that is too good to just throw
    away.
  • I love to shop for great vintage things that I can't really use but just know there's
    a market for them.
  • My tastes have changed, and I need to sell my old treasure trove so that I can
    start/continue building a
    new one.
  • I've always wanted to own my own small business but want to start out with
    something small and see if it's
    for me.
  • I love to travel and antique and would like to be able to write off some of the
    expenses involved.
  • I'm retired, have an interest in antiques and collectibles, and have room in my
    life for like-minded friends.
  • Running my own shop takes more time and money than I ever imagined.  I
    want my life back!
  • I've been paying for spaces at outdoor antique shows and flea markets but am
    tired of the physical labor
    required, unpleasant and/or unpredictable weather
    conditions, bad checks, losing sales because I don't
    take all credit cards or offer
    layaway and delivery, and being confined to a hot (or cold) spot for 8 straight

    hours when I'd rather be out there shopping with everyone else.  Getting up and
    out by 4 a.m., all the
    setting up and tearing down, the packing and unpacking --
    for the show, at the show, after I get back
    home -- is getting old and costly.
