The reasons we started Antique Abbey as a new online sales source:

  • Lack of traffic to the malls - people just don't shop like they used too because of gas prices and the economy
  • Dealers are paying too much in rent
  • Dealers are paying too much in commissions - usually 10 to 12% commission and dealer pays credit and debit fees
  • Mall owners playing favorites and featuring their own items over the everyday dealers
  • Mall owners featuring consignment items over the everyday dealers because the mall makes a higher percentage
  • Mall employees have booths and push their own merchandise 1st
  • Over abundance of product and overall mall size makes it hard for people find items
  • Small items needing to be locked up to avoid shoplifting
  • Customers swap price tags to get a lower price
  • Too many items get broken in a mall
  • If a large item sells your booth is left a mess until you come in and rearrange everything
  • Cramming too much in a booth because only so many products will fit in 10 by 10 area
  • Having to overprice items because the mall has an advertised sale and dealers are responsible to absorb the discount
  • Struggling during the off season - just not enough shoppers
  • Just not able to make enough profit to keep a shop open while the mall benefits from high profit margin!
