First vendor sets up shop, more booth spaces coming along!

We have our first booth already set up and ready for our grand opening on Friday! We had several people come in and look at both space sizes to get an idea of the size they may need for their use.

Our booth spaces are now coming along, after some late evening work last night. The first space, which is a 6' space is already reserved. You can see the 2' end cap also on the very right end of the wall.

As you can see, each aisle has one 6' space, then four 4' spaces, followed by an 8' space on the end. The wall is 7' tall, with a 4' divider in between the smaller booths. An electrical outlet is included in each space, for lighting. However, we do require our vendors to use energy efficient bulbs. (Read more on the Tab above.)

It may not look pretty, but here is the first aisle of our booth spaces, showing the booths on both sides. We also offer wall space (shown in the back) for items that don't need much depth. Those spaces are 12" deep, while the booth spaces shown in the foreground are 30" deep. We also offer back wall space, which is 4' in depth, and $15 per square foot, in 4' or 6' or larger sizes.
We have two full walls put up, but we will eventually have six in place. Each booth space will have four shelves available for vendors to use, and we also have pegboard hangers for $.25 each. We have many lengths and sizes of hooks. The space comes open for you to design and create however you would like to arrange your own items.

The store first opens for business on Friday at 10 a.m. We are open Saturday and also Sunday, due to the Crossroads Trading Post coming to town. Our regular store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.

In closing, thank you so much for our 2,800 page views as of today! We appreciate your readership and look forward to sharing more about the store as we begin our business hours on Friday.

Any handmade crafters who would like to become a vendor and area residents who would like to sell antique or quality used furniture items in the store can stop in at 9 S. Broadway St., Herington, or contact Stephanie Gilbert, store manager, at
