Freshen Up Your Inventory

This is a time when you might begin to thin out the piles and move around your merchandise to "freshen up" your space and attract new customers.
Often dealers who are experiencing a slump in business are not in the mood for decorating, dusting or sweeping. But this is exactly the time for CPR......."Carefully Planned Re-Do".

  1. I am in the "thinking" process of renting booth space at a local antique mall. This will certainly go in to my tickler file for down the road. Thanks!
