We are thrilled to announce that our Orange Park vintage store, Linen and Rust, is expanding and looking for NEW VENDORS! We have temporarily shut down our Paint Studio, but will reopen it in July. In the meantime, we’ve converted the old paint studio into more floor space and we are actively seeking more vendors. By the end of our renovation and expansion, we’ll have added an additional 2500 sqft of retail floor space, bumping us up to approximately 8000 of retail space!
While our vendors are already exceptional, we need more to fill the expansion. Our vendor set-up is super easy. We charge a $150 one time set-up fee, then 35% of the sale of each item. We pay on the 5th of the following month. Each of our vendors is vetted to ensure that they meet with our high expectations of quality and that their merchandise fits into our store. We don’t have booths, and vendors do not need to manage or set up their merchandise. They simply drop it off, tagged and priced, in our intake area and we do the rest.
Whether you focus on painted or repurposed furniture, accessories and artwork, or handmade signs, this is a great way to get your work out there without worrying about the high cost of booth fees. We don’t have any monthly fees outside of our 35% consignment fee! We also don’t call our vendors to ask if they will negotiate on their prices. We ask our vendors to put their prices where they will sell and then stand firm at that number. This has been great for our vendors, from our first month, we’ve had a dozen or more vendors making $1000K or more per month. To date, our best vendors have taken home checks in excess of $7,000 for one month of sales!
