Default booth rental??

I dont know what forum to put this in..sorry!

I am about to rent a booth at a local indoor market type place where people rent booths to sell their stuff..but you dont have to "man" the booth. People would pay at the front of the store.

Has anyone done anything like this? How did you set up? Anymore tips?

I rent wall space in a similar situation. I put plain white bow boards on the wall and hang my bows on those. They are nice enough to restock for me weekly if not twice a week. So far it has been great and sales were better than I thought. It also gives me ideas looking at other booths and inspiration.

I tried inventory two different ways and had to change. I basically number my bows from 1-999 so that I know what colors are selling. All small bows are 900's, all flowers are 300s, characters are 0-99. Then know what color combos are selling the best. There is probably an easier way but that works for me. Plus the shop owner requires that we use numbers like that.

If you are not close, I would discuss if they will restock for you. The place I rent at requires shop owners to come in once a week to clean and restock but they work with me since I am out of town.

Also, see how long the rental terms are so that you can test it out to see how your things sale. My place required 4 months so it wasn't a huge long term thing for me.

I hope this has been helpful.

I buy the jewelry tags from staples. 1000 to a box for around $15. They are called marking tags. I did find that I like the string shorter, so I run the string through the alligator clip and tie a knot closer and cut the excess off. Otherwise they hang too low and ended up tangled together. I personally like the 1 3/32 x 3/4 size. I put my inventory number and a description on one side and the price on the other. Also instead of $5 I use $4.95. Makes it seem less expensive!!
