Seven years ago, I rented space in an antique mall to sell my refinished furniture.  I had no idea what I was doing, all I knew was that I was running out of room to store finished projects in my house and I was really frustrated with marketing and selling my pieces to online buyers.

It took several months for me to make a profit in that antique store - I slowly learned by watching other vendors and trying new techniques myself.  I had no one to coach me, no books or guides to teach me.  I wish I had a resource like Vintage Vendor Academy back then.

Now with 7+ years experience selling at markets, fairs, and antique stores, I've compiled everything I've learned and I'm sharing it with you in an easy to follow, step-by-step guide.

Who is this course for? +

Anyone who loves refinishing furniture and decor, is a yard sale hunter who’s been hoarding her vintage finds for years, or even a creator of handmade goods - and wants a step-by-step plan for successfully selling their items at markets, fairs, or in an antique booth.

I’m only interested in learning about running an antique booth (or being a vintage market vendor) - can I only buy that part of the course? +

While running an antique booth and a vintage market space are two different types of venues, many of the principles taught in VVA are similar for both. So there is some overlap, and no matter where you plan to sell your goods, you will benefit from going through both parts of the course. Also, if you decide to switch gears in the future, you already have all the information you need here.

I don’t redo furniture - I create handmade goods. Will this course still benefit me? +

Absolutely! We cover finding the perfect venue, deciding what products to sell, displays, staging, branding and marketing, pricing strategies, and several worksheets and bonus galleries that you’ll find useful - plus more.

Why should I spend money learning how to be a vendor? +

This course costs less than (or near) one month's booth rent or one market space fee no matter where you are in the US.   Wouldn't you rather be fully prepared ahead of time instead of losing precious time and money while you try to piece together all the elements of a successful vendor space on your own?  You don't have to go searching all over the web or interviewing every vendor at the next market you visit - everything you need to know is compiled in one simple place for you, and it's ready and available right now.

I’ve been a vendor before, but it didn’t go so well. Will this course benefit me? +

This course is geared more toward the first-time market vendor or antique booth dealer. However if you tried it before and felt lost or really didn’t have a clue what you were doing, then you will probably learn a lot in this course.

How long will it take me to get through the entire course? +

The entire course will take anywhere from a few days to about a week to get through, but you’ll want to refer back to the worksheets and photo galleries often when you change your displays seasonally or have another upcoming market.

How long will I have access to this course? +

Forever and ever. Go through it as quickly or slowly as you'd like!

Why do you think you’re qualified to teach this course? +

I’ve been passionate about upcycling vintage furniture and decor since I was a poor college student trying to furnish my first apartment on a budget. Eventually in 2012 I started my blog Girl in the Garage to share my projects and inspire others. Not long after, my garage was overflowing with finished and unfinished projects. I needed a place to sell my pieces but wasn’t excited about listing things online. When I needed help, I couldn’t find any advice about selling at antique malls and markets/fairs. My first fair as a vendor was an embarrassment (and a waste of money), and my first few months of renting a booth space I didn’t hardly have a clue what I was doing. I’ve rented a booth in an antique mall for 7 years now, and I’ve also been a vendor at craft fairs and vintage markets for several years. I don’t consider myself an expert, but I know a heck of a lot more now than I used to – and in this course I’ll share everything I’ve learned with you so that you can avoid those mistakes I made when I first started, and you can be successful right away.

What is the refund policy? +

Since the course information can be consumed rather quickly, there are no refunds.  Please make sure that you really want to buy this course before you make the purchase.

Can you guarantee that I’ll make $5000 at my first market or in my first month of running my antique booth? +

Nope.  Sorry, but I don’t think anyone would guarantee that.  While we give you all the necessary information to run a profitable vintage vendor business, we cannot guarantee your success.  There are numerous other factors that contribute to your business, such as your time commitment, venue location and marketing, your products, pricing, how well you put into practice all the lessons learned in VVA, and other unforeseen variables.  BUT - if you put forth the effort, do your research and plan ahead, and have good quality products, there's no reason why you wouldn't succeed.  I believe in you!
