How Do I Rent A Booth To Sell My Stuff?

Ever wondered "where are the best antiques in Beaver County?" or "how do I rent a booth and sell my stuff?" 

Well, we're here to tell you all you need to know about renting an antique booth.

First, you don't need a ton of experience or knowledge to get started, just follow a few of these tips and you'll be on your way in no time.

  1. Take some time to visit a few of the potential stores where you want to rent a booth. Look for things like, are the sales associates helpful? Is it clean, uncluttered and how easy is it to find what you're looking for?
  2. Observe what items are on display and take note of the prices on items that are similar to what you plan to sell. For example, if there are hundreds of mason jars already there, you may not want to bank on that being a key item in your booth.
  3. Talk to the management and ask them for tips and suggestions. Chances are, they can tell you what sells the most, what people are looking for, and at what prices those items sell.
  4. Visit yard sales, estate sales and auctions to build your collection if you think you may not have enough to fill your space.
  5. Make sure to tag every item clearly. Some items may warrant further descriptions and a larger tag makes sense. Be careful with tags that stick, no one wants to ruin their new purchase peeling off a tag! Check with your store first to see what tagging requirements they may have.
  6. Have fun setting up your booth! There are lots of examples on Pinterest (start with this board for ideas) that can help you along the way, and be creative! You can often paint, use different floor coverings, alternative lighting, and props that hang from the ceiling, just be sure to check your rental contract prior to making any changes.

Good Luck and enjoy!

Who Buys Estates in Beaver County, PA?

You may be wondering who buys estates in Beaver County, PA.  Your answer: Hutch & Home does! 

 

While summer is prime time for estate sales, yard sales, and garage sales, we buy estates throughout the year. We can help you get the best prices out of your estate, and have the project completed in a timely manner.

"Many people vastly overestimate the value of their furniture and collections. Antique furniture and collectibles that were highly desirable 20 years ago may not be worth what you paid for them today. Just because it's old doesn't mean it's valuable, those collectors have moved on or they've got all they want. The young kids – they're not really interested in old things" says Helaine Fendelman, an appraiser of fine arts, collectibles and antiques in New York who writes the syndicated "Treasures in Your Attic" column, was co-author of the book of the same title and was a co-host of the syndicated PBS TV show.

 

While having a yard sale or estate sale on your own may seem like a good way to make some money and start to clear many items out of your loved ones home, often these sales are much more work and yield far less than most people anticipate.

 

If you do decide to have your own yard sale or estate sale, "price things to sell because the object is to get rid of them, not to get rich," says Lauri Ward, a home design expert in New York and Boca Raton, Florida, and author of several books, including "Downsizing Your Home With Style." Upholstered furniture, armoires and wall units, once expensive, are now out of fashion. "These are not valuable any more," she says. "You can't sell them today."

 

Make sure family members get a chance to take mementos. This could involve drawing lots, a family meeting or inviting family and friends to take items from those you don't plan to sell. Determining which items should be should be sold will vary according to the preferences and needs of the family. A simple discussion among family members often helps make this decision. Source.
