Vintage Dealer Survey

What's WRONG??

I'm asking vintage dealers and aspiring vintage dealers what's the BIGGEST problem with your vintage business? 

If you could take 5 minutes and tell me what your single biggest challenge that you struggle with right now, it would mean the world to me. (If your challenge is becoming a seller, that counts!)

Anything goes. Tell me whatever is on your mind about the business of vintage. 

Those of you that know me, know I care about this business and the people in it.

Those of you who don't, I look forward to getting to know you.

I've done it all. I'm currently a dealer and show promoter. I've learned things along the way and have had great success, as well as giant failures. Everything I do is a learning experience I'm not afraid to share. 

I hope we can help each other make the business of vintage stronger!

Join the Business of Vintage list.  I plan to eventually work on sharing materials that will help us long term grow with the technology that is coming so fast it feels like it's passing us by.

Vintage Garage ChicagoVintage Jewelry is just one component of what Merrilyn and Kathy will bring to the Garage. We are thrilled to have them for the full 2016 season! Each month they offer up an eclectic mix of antiques and vintage. Bringing estate-fresh merchandise to every Garage, you never know what you might find in their booth: vintage jewelry, dinnerware, home or holiday decor. Their stuff is always unique, interesting and different! Look for Aspen Vintage in the same spot each month on the north west corner of the 2nd floor.
