What do they include with the space as far as advertising, etc.? Does the store get a lot of traffic and/or is it in a visible location? Another question you may want to ask is whether or not they want a specific time commitment or if you can just go month to month. I wish you the best of luck whatever you decide-I'm sure your space will look great!!!!
That is about what it was here, but the consignment shop they had here closed just before Christmas because the one that was running it had cancer and just passed away last month. Hope you do it and make alot of money. Usually they work out okay because alot of the ones that rent spots also buy others things. Let us know if you decide to do it.
The store is in a mall, but it does not get much traffic until college is in session.
I had a "brain fart" and have already called hubby to leave him a very excited message. I'm taking the plunge with building a roadside sign and selling from my home (front porch). I have to run out for more jars, but will can jelly again tomorrow.
We are really excited. We can sell our goat's milk soap (in progress), and even eggs! So so so excited about giving this a whirl. I sure hope hubby is in on this. It would save me the cost of the booth and we are on a country highway! How perfect!
Do both! Just wait till college is in to so the store booth. By then the tourist season will have passed & less people will be taking casual drives through the country so you front porch sells will probably slow down then. See if you can maybe book the first month in advance so you don't miss a slot. $35 isn't all that much for taking a risk, but yeah, if you have to pay for a whole year un advance that could mess you up.
I was looking into a flea market booth that runs $20 a weekend & I thought that was a good deal. :D
Good luck to you Kristina. I have often thought of doing something similar as I live on a busy county road. Would have to look in to it more- as far as selling the eggs I am quite sure that is no problem. Probably wouldnt do any other food items, but perhaps something else nifty...HMMMMM- my wheels continue to spin! LOL

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away..
Thanks for all your kind words, encouragement and help. I'm going to print photos of flowers that I took and make blank cards by attaching the actual photo too. I just have to get going and get this stuff ready.
YOU GO GIRL!!! I'm pulling for you. I am able to sell my aprons from home as well as Farmers Market (during the season) and a local restaurant. I've been approached by two other business owners who want to carry them in their business.
Getting things made and ready can be a challenge . . . I certainly know that! Wishing you the best! CJ
