Thanks for your interest in renting space at Antiques & Uniques.
CURRENTLY WE ARE FULLY RENTED, BUT WE HAVE A WAITING LIST OF INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN JOINING US AS SPACE BECOMES AVAILABLE. STOP BY OUR CUSTOMER SERVICE DESK IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BECOMING A DEALER AND WE WILL ADD YOUR NAME TO THAT LIST.
There are a variety of spaces of different sizes, some half-spaces, and some doubles. Most spaces are approximately 10 ft. x 10 ft. (100 square feet). Rents are based on a space of that size and pro-rated for the actual size of the space.
Based on a 10x10 space, rent is $180.00 per month and 10% commission on your sales. Spaces with electric are $5.00 per month additional. You are required to work 2 days per month to staff the Store, as a walker, service desk person, cashier, greeter, etc. Dealers can also display a limited number of larger items for sale in the Furniture Room.
There is no long-term commitment, but we ask you to plan to sign-up for a least 3 months to give your business an opportunity to become established. We require a $50.00 deposit to cover any extensive damage to your space. It will be returned to you when you leave the Store or after you are a dealer for 6 months as long as your rent and workday obligations are up-to-date.
Included in the rent is a $25.00 per space, per month advertising fee. Every dealer pays this fee within the rent. An Advertising Committee of dealers meets to determine ways to spend this money to increase the visibility of Antiques & Uniques.
You can decorate your space any way you wish - paint, wallpaper, paneling, shelves, etc. You provide your own shelving, display cases, tables, etc. You decide how to price your items and must use our price tags/stickers on your items. These tags/stickers are available to you at our cost. The uniform price tags help with security.
Items are purchased through a central check-out area. Every two weeks you receive a print-out of the items sold, your original price stickers, and a check. If you have a vendor's license, we will pay to you the tax we collected on your sales. If you do not have a vendor's license, we will keep track of the sales tax and remit it to the state. You are required to register with the City of Wickliffe as a vendor.
We are open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday from 12N to 6 PM. Come in anytime to look over the store and talk to us about becoming a dealer. Just ask for Tom or Barb.
