I am interested in a booth. How do I get one?
Thanks so much for your interest in booth space at Alyssa's! At most times, we do have a wait list but even when we do, we are always looking for fresh new ideas. If you have something special you represent/make/sell, please let us know what you have. We are also always looking for different and creative vendors! Feel free to email me pictures of your items and I would be happy to let you know if I think you would "fit" into our store. I will always be honest with you. We want you to make money at Alyssa's - not have your items sit around and collect dust. We have a very busy store with LOTS of customer traffic but some things just have different seasons of selling and we want you to be in the right place at the right time! Applications are available at the front desk to get you put on our list.
Our booths are priced according to size, shape, and the structure that is built in it. Booths start at approximately $40 per month and increase in price with size. We also from time to time have shelf units that come open and they range from $15-$40 per month. The only additional "fee" you pay is the 10% consignment. We pay out to our dealers once a month on the fifth of the month.
We are open Monday-Saturday 9am-6pm and Sundays 10am-6pm. We are open 362 days a year and NEVER close early for any reason. Actually most days, we are here well past 6:00! We do close on Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day and Easter Day to enjoy those days with our families.
If you have any further questions or would like to set up an appointment with me, I would love to meet and walk the store with you. I am passionate about Alyssa's and am always looking for people who can add to our atmosphere. We have been blessed with lots of great vendors and very loyal customers who spread the word of us very well. If you want to sell your things, we are an optimal place for you to do it!
Thanks again and I look forward to meeting you!
I am interested in consignment. How do I set that up?
Thanks for your interest in consigning your items at Alyssa's.
At the present time, we offer consignment on furniture and large home decor (mirrors, lamps, etc) only. Things such as dishes, vases, etc. just take up too much time and space and usually will do better at a yard sale/estate sale than in our store. If you have a higher end collectible item you would like us to represent for you online, we can arrange for an appraisal and let you know what your options are at that time.
Either way, feel free to email me pictures of your items and I would be happy to let you know if I think your items would "fit" into our store. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I will always be honest with you. We want you to make money at Alyssa's - not have your items sit around and collect dust. We have a very busy store with LOTS of customer traffic but some things just have different seasons of selling and we want you to be in the right place at the right time!
After seeing pictures, I can usually give you a price range that the items will sell for. If you are agreeable with that price, we will make arrangements to have the item picked up (for a small fee) or you can bring it to us (no fee) upon appointment.
Our consignment rate is 60% for you and 40% for us. We pay once a month on the 15th of the month to our consignors.
If you have any further questions, please contact us.
Thanks again for your interest in consigning at Alyssa's!
