    I remember the days of managing antique mall booths. I do not miss that at all. For all the small "junk" jewelery, i had the best luck dropping them into little baggies, folding and stapling a piece of paper off the top and hanging them on pegboard hooks. I ended up just cutting a piece of pegboard to fit the sides of the shelves, with little 1/2" spacers behind them, and putting hooks and baggies down the sides of the shelves. Looks like hell, but sure does get people looking. Eventually I found a vendor thrift store 100 miles away and set up there, closed booths in 4 malls when I did. It was far but worth it. I took to cramming high volumes of low dollar items into bookshelves and pegboard walls there. Eventually I moved towards lower volume, higher dollar and highet quality items, and the monthly + % was no longer worth the time, as online is just a straight %, and the things i sell now are generally quick turnaround, and go about the same price online

    edit to add: It's the tall slim amber one with the stopper in it.

    You talking about the Blenko #6953 Tangerine piece with the air twist stopper? That's a helluva deal. It's worth at least 4 times that amount. The last one sold for $125, last September. There is one listed now for $212.50 plus $63 shipping. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Blenko-Joel...c=1&rmvSB=true

    Why wouldn't you list it on ebay for $100 or so? Heck, I just sold one almost as big for $50. No big deal.

    I think he was referring to the one on top of the shelf that I was referring to.
    I've never seen the one on the floor (the Blenko) I will have to keep an eye out for that one. Thanks.

    I agree about getting the jewelry off the tables in the center and the tall pieces off the shelf. I would also suggest moving the tables to the rear of the rented space to close off the back of your selling space. While closing off the end of the selling space is sometimes frowned upon, it will give folks the room to step back and see what is hard to see down low on shelves. Most folks and especially the elderly shoppers will not want to bend way down or kneel to get a look at hard to see items because they have a hard time getting back up or are afraid of knocking items off when the displays are so close or both. If you don't want to close off the rear of the selling space, maybe you can incorporate the tables to elevate some of the smaller shelf pieces and still keep a few items on the tables as well.
