There is a frenzy going on amongst the Denver Brass Armadillo Antique Mall venders this week....and as well there should be!
We had more great success with the Classified Listing Program within the Mall. It brought in some really great sales and got multiple venders excited about getting their own items posted and up on the internet.
Back in May of 2012 a couple of venders came to me and asked me to post an item that they had stored in one of our back rooms. The item was too large for them to display in their space in the Mall, but depite its size and "unique vibe", we knew that the item would make the right buyer a happy camper....if we could only find them, or better yet, help them find us!
This 1920's antique medical exam table is oak with all the fixings: 2 sets of stir-ups, the original leather, height & foot adjustments, blood pan and 4 pass through drawers.
The item was originally listed on May 2, 2012 and reposted approximately every 60 days with no success in finding a buyer for this unique item. But just after reposting it at the end of September, a couple of gentlemen came into the Mall and asked us to pull the table out of storage. They looked it over and happily took it home with them on Wednesday of this last week.
As if this weren't already a great enough story.....
Shortly after I was asked to post the medical exam table, the same set of venders asked if I could come out to their shop and storage unit and list some additional items that they wanted to sell. Due to the collectability, rarity & value of the items, I happily obliged. Again, I continued to repost the items as they expired and just this last Tuesday, after reposting it just two days before, we received a call from an interested buyer for this beautiful quarter sawn oak Early Murphy Bed with desk and beveled mirror.
People, I have seen this happen time and time again. I'll list an item and nothing happens, but then I'll repost it and we make a connection. It's all a matter of finding that one person and what better way to do that than by listing your items and being persistent.
