"Do I need to be in my booth to ring up my sales?"
No. Town Peddler Craft and Antique Mall takes care of ringing up all sales. You will be assigned a special code, and you will need to put this code on your price tags. Our computerized system will keep a record of your sales.
"How do I get a booth?"
You enter into a license agreement with a six or twelve month term. To enter into a license, you will need to provide your first month's booth fee, plus a deposit equal to one month's booth fee. Booth payment is due on the first of each month, and any portion of a month is prorated.
Unlike some other area craft malls, we do not offer "teaser" ultra-short terms just to get
you in the door; more often than not, these so-called "bargain" terms are too short to get a new dealer established. In the end, you're out a couple month's payments with even less in sales
to show for it. We'll do whatever it takes to help enhance and increase your sales!
"How do I make my monthly booth payments?"
Payments may be dropped off at a special drop-box at the store, or you may mail your payment to The Town Peddler, Inc, 35323 Plymouth Rd, Livonia, MI 48150. Please include your vendor number on your check. You can also arrange to have your booth payments automatically deducted from your bank account.
"Is Town Peddler Craft and Antique Mall juried?"
Yes. We make sure that the items that are available for sale in our stores are of superior quality and marketability while avoiding "oversaturation" with too much of a few kinds of items. It is our diversity, variety, and constant introduction of new product that brings customers in the store and keeps them coming back.
"What kind of security system do you use?"
We have invested many thousands of dollars in the installation and continuing upgrade of state-of-the-art anti-theft equipment, including closed-circuit TV systems, security tags for individual items, and a point-of-sale/front-door sensor system. We have also trained our staff to recognize and investigate suspicious behavior.
"Are dealers required to work at the store?"
No. There are absolutely no dealer work requirements, other than keeping your booth stocked!
"When may I stock my booth?"
You may stock your booth during regular business hours.
"I live out of town and I am unable to come in regularly to stock my booth. How do I keep my booth serviced when I'm so far away?"
The Town Peddler offers to its out-of-town dealers a free booth setup and maintenance program. You can keep track of your sales with our free Internet sales reporting system. Just ship your merchandise in and we'll do the rest!
"How does the layaway program work?"
When a customer puts an item in layaway, we require that 1/3 of the total purchase be paid at that time, and the customer signs an agreement that the layaway will be paid in full within 60 days. We then place the items in a special storage area, to remain until the balance is paid. You are paid for the item as each payment is made.
