Antiques on Elm


This is always something I've wanted to do, sell my stuff in an antique store!

About a week ago I was walking in downtown Manchester, NH. I was suppose to be working out at the gym but it was too nice out to be indoors, so I walked. I remembered an antique store I've always wanted to visit so that was my destination. I don't know what came over me but I had so much fun walking around and talking to the ladies that ran the store. I started asking questions about renting a space and well a week later I have booth set up.

It was pretty simple to get it started, all I needed to do was fill out an application and pay them the first month's rent, in this case i'm required to stick with them for 3 months. There is always the thought that no one will buy your stuff, but I was willing to take that chance, you never know until you try.

So you need to set up an inventory of your items. For now I have a notebook with descriptions and prices and discounts for people who pay with cash. I cleaned up and dusted off all my items and tagged them according to the store's requirements. Pretty simple.

I hope people will enjoy my 50's-70's items. If you are local please stop by, my booth number is 44 at Antiques on Elm. I think I will also stick in some of my fabrics by the end of the week, I still have so much I want to place in there, but for some reason every time I go I never bring enough with me.

If anyone has any questions about the process, don't hesitate to ask!

Not Your Grandma's Craft Fair



I just signed up for this today. It's a new event and it's close to home for me so I thought hey, why not!

"Not Your Grandma’s Craft Fair" spawned from the need to fill a gap in our local artsy craft market. After attending many local crafts fairs, we realized we just didn’t quite fit. We wanted somewhere to not only sell our wares but also a place to see artists like us, a little estranged from the potholder/doily crowd. Not Your Grandma’s Craft Fair intends to be a showcase of the areas best artists and crafters, attracting crowds who might not make it to the average church basement bazaar.

Location 550 Lowell Street, Manchester, NH 03104
Time November 12th 2011, 9:00am - 3:00 pm
