Antique dealers offer sage advice on starting a booth

Excerpt

Tips for a profitable booth

We asked the experts at several area antique malls for tips, and here is a roundup of the best.

1. Fill your booth; you can't make any money unless you have something to sell. Each booth needs a wide price range, too, according to Donna King, who has had a booth for eight years at the Benbrook Antique Mall. Don't go overboard: Richard Schneck of the Vineyards Antique Mall says that a crammed booth will not appeal to browsers.

2. Visit your booth at least weekly to straighten and freshen up, says Michael Winchester, at the Mercantile.

3. Mark prices clearly. All the malls have specific requirements for price tags and the information required.

4. Write descriptive labels for most items, especially the unusual ones. Erica Goodrich, manager at the Mid-Cities Antique Mall, says that popular cable TV shows such as American Picker, Storage Wars and Pawn Stars bring in customers who have some knowledge about older items and vintage pieces.
