Ideas for a new antique cooperative in Texas
We are trying to open an antique cooperative in Round Top, Texas, which we would like to run year round and are having difficulty getting dealers to commit. The location is excellent with high traffic and lots of folks coming to Round Top year round looking for somewhere to shop for antiques and unique finds. Any advice or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
We have about 3,000 SF of space that is heated and cooled which we are renting for $1.50 per SF and about 5,000 SF warehouse space which is not heated and cooled that we are renting for $1.25 per SF. We need it to be dealer run with each dealer working a few days a month in order to stay open. We have had tons of excellent feedback as we were open for this year's Fall Antique Show for the Round Top/Warrenton area but now need to keep on moving forward.
Thanks and have a good day
