Turning trash to treasure and dough.
It all started one day, quite unexpectedly, while vintiquing when I came across a shop that rented booths to vendors who had stuff to sell. I made some inquiries and before I knew it I was drooling at the thought of becoming a part of this rustic, quirky shop in the Melrose district in downtown Phoenix named Qcumberz. All I had to do was stock the booth and price each item with a little help from the owner and I began earning cash.
Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t happen overnight and you have to do your homework to figure out what sells and who your shopper is to generate a profit. So, I stalked the other vendors for ideas and to see what items were flying out of their booths so I could tag-a-long.
Unfortunately the owner had to close his doors and after selling for about a year, my first little shop had come to a close as well. Luckily there were quite a few options in my area that were available to me. Antique malls are big here in the Phoenix area so I moved on.
I’ve taken a break from this because I am selfishly vintiquing and hoarding found objects for my new, old, historic home. But, beware, I will be back to stalking again in your friendly neighborhood antique mall. 😉
