This past weekend, I reserved a table at a Ladies Retreat in Estes Park, Colorado and displayed my Vintage Jewelry
. It was my first marketplace experience and it was so fun! And I sold quite a bit too.
Even though I love vintage selling online at Grandma's Treasures Online
, I now have the itch to additionally take some of my products out where the people are. I noticed that many of those who stopped by my table began reminiscing about grandma’s screw-back earrings or a retro pair that was similar to what they wore in high school. Just holding them and sharing their memories, prompted many a sale. Others bought the jewelry as unique gifts to take home to a special friend or relative.
As part of my signage, I inserted a photo of myself at the age of three into a vintage reproduction frame. It was quite appropriate - since I am vintage too! ;-)
So, tell me about your experiences in marketplace buying or selling!
