How do I sign up?
What are the steps to sign up as a vendor?
How do I pick my space?
Take a look at the AAM Highland Map on our Facebook page or our website. Please pick out several spaces that you are interested in. When we call you, we will help you determine the right size and area for you from the available spaces.
How can I prepare my booth for move in?
All our booths will be pre built for easy move in. We encourage you to name your booth, decorate and make it your own shop. Large changes, like painting, adding architectural interest with height are allowed and will need to be approved by our manager.
How will I tag my items?
I’m not sure how to use Consignor Access? What should I do?
We are happy to help you! Don’t worry, once you get the hang of it, you will love it. It is a pretty easy system that helps track items, and makes for a smooth check out for our customers and a simplified pay out system for you. One of the great features is that you can login into your account and check your sales from anywhere so you know what was sold in real time.
Questions for Experienced Vendors
Are there times I can restock or make changes to my booth when customers aren't in the store?
Yes! Once the store is open we will have monthly vendor work times so you can work on your booth, make changes to your space, and socialize with fellow vendors. You can always bring items in durning store hours, too. This extra time just for our vendors is great for brining in bigger pieces or doing larger scale rearranging in your booth.
Are there work requirements?
No. Our Manager, Assistant Manager and Customer Service Associates are trained to run the store and all the sales so you can focus on making your booth fantastic.
What about sales tax?
America's Antique Mall will collect and pay all sales tax on your behalf. While in many cases, creating a separate entity for you business is not necessary, for those who do have an entity and are required to file monthly sale tax reporting, please report $0 in sales for the portion of goods sold at AAM.
