Antique Booth Buying Among Dealers In The Same Antique Mall
How many of you are guilty of shopping in a friend's antique booth in the same store that you lease a booth in and then after your purchase, turning around and adding what you just bought to your very own booth? Each Antique Mall I have leased space from has different rules on this topic. The more lenient store owners encourage lots of buying and selling and set no rules about buying from other dealers. Yet in other places I have leased space, inter-booth buying and selling was discouraged. I like the idea
of being able to buy from other booths in my group shop and building my favorite inventory. What do my readers think?
