I've moved in and out of four different antique mall spaces between three different stores over the past two years. I've tagged hundreds of pieces of merchandise and moved dozens of heavy boxes of vintage merch around this city for this profession. It's hard work, but the flexibility and creativity keeps me coming back to it and working hard on improving and evolving every day!
What keeps you coming back to and/or selling vintage? While pricing items yesterday I overheard shoppers saying "looking at old stuff" just makes them "happy." It's rewarding to contribute to the shopping merriment.
