We pride ourselves in finding the perfect people to fill spots as they come open. Therefore, it is not merely a first come, first serve on our booths - we choose to fill with different and unique items as much as we can. If you sell specific items, we ask that you list them out specifically on your application and even ask for pictures of your items if possible. Here at Alyssa's we strive for a unique look for our store. The customers love to walk through our aisles and find all sorts of treasures! We strive to keep the store full of all different types and styles of items to keep our customers looking down each aisle and to maximixe profits and interest!
Having a booth at Alyssa's is really a part-time job. We are extrememly blessed with continous traffic. Our items sell very quickly. Alyssa's vendors usually spend five hours minimum a week on their booths either in the store fluffing, working on items to tag and bring in from home or shopping for new inventory. This is a minimal investment as most times your items will sell much quicker & you will need to dedicate more time to keep your booth full and fresh. If you can't do this, we are not the place for you. Our items turn so quickly that you will need to be able to refill as needed each week.
Some people are just looking to liquidate items from their home and in this case, we recommend consignment. We take large items such as furniture, mirrors, lamps, etc on consignment for a 60% you and 40% us split. To do so, we ask that you forward pictures of the items you wish to sell, and we can give you approximate prices that they will sell for, Most folks who are just trying to sell one type of merchandise or just a few items unfortunately may never get a chance for a booth because our list is very long. It's a blessing ato have minimal openings but we also understand the frustration of waiting. Again though, you may want to condsider consignment and decide if this will work for you or not.
Another option is to "try" us out by participating in one of our Outdoor Markets and/or Ladies Night event. These are the one day functions that will give you a pretty good idea of whether or not our customers will buy your things. Should you want more info on them, please email our marketing manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In any case, once again, we thank you very much for your interest in space at Alyssa's. We love each and every one of our eclectic consignors and vendors and are thankful ofr the opportunity God has given us to continue to serve our customres with a great variety of merchandise and great prices. Have a blessed day and we look forward to speaking to you soon.
