How to rent space at an antique mall Advice On Renting An Antique Booth
Let’s talk turkey. and I am not referring to Thanksgiving, I’m talking about renting a booth space in an Antique Mall or Antique group shop. How much should one expect to pay for leasing space and what kind of space is right for you? My experience as a leasee covers a few decades. I have been known to stuff my kitsch n collectibles into shelves, showcases, open shelves, small booths, large booths as well as odd shaped nooks and crannies. I love challenging spaces.

I even offered to clean the bathroom of one Antique group shop in exchange for allowing me to hang my kitschy decor on the walls. The joke is that I sold more stuff from the bathroom than from my open shelves at the opposite end of the store.

If there is truly a waiting list in the mall you are after, keep checking with the owner. Many times it is all a matter of timing. Stick with it, and be wary of a place that has a lot of openings.
busy and successful Antique Malls are worth the wait. And by all means talk to as many dealers as you can before hand and get the inside scoop.

I got a sweet note from Jayne at Chalk Mercantile in CT. ( Stop by and LIKE her on FaceBook! ) She’s starting a mall and would like some advice. Here’s a bit of her note:

I own a small shop ,, and am moving into a much larger space in one of our shoreline towns. I’ve changed my business plan a bit and will now have vendor space and your blog has been such an important resource for me! If you have any advice for a newbie antique/decor mall owner I would truly appreciate it.

How to rent space at an antique mall

There should be an entire blog devoted to the owner side of the business! I have never been an owner so I can’t possibly know all the details, but I have picked up plenty of info from several owners along the way. If I ever wanted to open my own shop, I feel like I’d have a head start on most, but as I keep saying, I’m a retired teacher and I don’t want to work too hard at anything! 😀

Anyway, here are a few things that come to mind right off the top of my head. They aren’t in any certain order.

How to rent space at an antique mall

1. Build some mutually beneficial connections.
One of the best tips I can tell you is to go to a similar store that you admire (not so close that it’s competition – maybe a couple of towns away) and talk to the owner. Most owners are really happy to offer advice if you aren’t their competition. Even after you are established, whenever you go out of town, if time permits, always stop by malls and talk to owners. If an owner is super helpful, offer to buy them lunch or do something to show your appreciation. Always give them a shoutout and share their Facebook page when you get home. This is how the owner at Rockin’ B Antiques (one of the stores I promote) got started 15 years ago. She still talks about how helpful this was and she is great at passing help along to other mall owners.

2. Promote Your Store AND Your Vendors.
Make your Facebook page a priority and promote the big items of anyone who rents a space from you. A web page is hit or miss. Facebook can go out to more people on a regular basis. Show your furniture often – that really gets folks in the store. And encourage your vendors to participate on Facebook. Bribe them if necessary – promote things more for those who participate. Their participation will help increase the number of LIKEs on your page!

If you aren’t good on Facebook, find someone who is. You can even trade rent for Facebook services. If you farm this task out, make sure that YOU are the page manager and they are just a content creator. Do NOT have two managers. One manager can oust another. They can take off with your page. They can do all sorts of vile things. It happens more often than you’d believe. Let them start on a trial basis. You don’t want to get stuck with someone who doesn’t do a good job and then have to go through an uncomfortable dismissal. Better to ask them to do it for a few months and then, if you love their work, ask them if they’d like to do it for a little longer. Also, make sure you have a good opportunity to look at their writing before you sign them on. It’s amazing how many creative, talented, well-spoken people can’t write or spell worth a flip. Which brings me to the next tip.

3. Delegate Wisely.
Have special vendors help with some tasks so you won’t be overloaded. Everyone has talents. Not every person excels at writing, just as not every person is artistic. No one can do it all. You need to figure out what your vendors do best and enlist their help when possible. You may not want that creative person with poor writing doing your Facebook page, but they might be just the person to set up a window display that makes customers swoon. You may not want a shy or depressed person helping at the register, but they might be just the person to keep plants at the store looking perky.

4. When you change a policy, give advance notice.
When you make a change that affects vendors (rent going up, pricetag requirements, certain items no longer allowed, etc) try not to say effective immediately. Most vendors can’t get over to the give advance warning. Starting in two months or whatever. This is just a matter of respect.

5. Choose vendors wisely. Insist on photos. If they have a booth elsewhere, check it out – online or in person. Once you have a full store, let future incoming vendors start out in a small out-of the-way space on a trial basis. After they have proven themselves with a nice booth and decent sales (and you have interacted with them enough to know they aren’t a complete nut) then let them move into a better booth when one comes open.

6. Allow one space per vendor. This one is iffy. I know of some great exceptions. But generally speaking, it’s better to have more vendors in the store than fewer vendors with multiple booths. If a vendor has one space, they work harder to keep it looking good and they change things around regularly. When they spread out into more booths, the booths tend to get stale or even unkempt and the vendor isn’t always as good at filling in as things sell. If the vendor is great, give them a slightly larger booth. Also, more vendors in the store generally gives the store more variety. Each vendor brings their own specialty. A mall with nothing but chalk painted furniture wouldn’t attract as many customers as a mall with a number of styles.

7. Pay Extra Attention to Your Store’s First Impression. Think about all the senses. When a customer first enters, the immediate surroundings should look fabulous, feel comfortable (not too hot or too cold), and smell pleasant without being overly perfume-y. Change front displays often so repeat customers will never get bored.

8. A mall owner has two customer groups – the people who shop at the store and the vendors who rent spaces.
The mall owner needs to keep both groups happy. Most owners strive to keep customers happy. They know that’s their bottom line. Not all owners realize they should work just as hard at making the vendors happy and doing whatever they can to help them do better. Word travels. If you want to make sure you keep great vendors and keep a waiting list of potential good vendors, then be a great owner. My smart friend, Martie, taught me this one. She’s a booth vendor but used to own a shop.

Antique malls are shopping malls that provide the opportunity for shoppers to browse through a wide range of items that are considered to be collectibles. Various stores or booths in the antique mall may be devoted to such items as furnishings, clothing, jewelry, and even appliances. In many instances, the mall is located in sites formerly occupied by department stores, such as the anchor store space in a strip mall.

One of the reasons why so many people enjoy antiquing at a mall of this type is the wide range of selections. Unlike a single antique store, where the type and number of available items is usually more limited, the antique mall caters to collectors of both the usual and the unusual. For example, a single store of this type is likely to carry the more predictable items such as beds, dressers, and sofas. But this mall is also likely to have hard to find items like fainting couches, original wood burning stoves, tapestries, and even authentic period clothing from eras gone by. Even for people who are not looking for a particular item, browsing through an antique mall may provide hours of enjoyment.

In some communities, the antique store has brought renewal to older shopping centers. As demographics change and large department stores move to new areas of the city that are growing in population, many of these older shopping hubs fall into decay or are torn down to make room for new construction. The advent of the antique mall can often signal a revival for the area, enticing niche shoppers to the area. In turn, small cafes and other specialty shops begin to fill smaller spaces around the mall and make the old shopping center a favorite destination once again.

While many may think that an antique mall would be an expensive place to shop, the fact is that many items carried in malls of this type are very affordable. Some of the items are not restored, making them attractive bargains. There is usually an array of old books, costume jewelry, and knick-knacks that tend to be low-ticket items. Some malls today even carry vinyl records, making the mall attractive to yet another niche market of customers.

Along with brick and mortar antique venues, there is also the option of shopping online. As with other retail options, people can choose to set up an Internet based store and offer antiques for sale online. While these types of stores may not offer as wide a selection as the more traditional antique mall down the street, they are great places to look for items that cannot be found elsewhere. Some of these online malls even offer free shipping for purchases over a certain amount.

How to rent space at an antique mall


Storefront spaces on Peerspace cost anywhere between $40 — $250 per hour.

Are you looking to launch a memorable pop-up or retail experience? Finding the perfect space can be a daunting task with so many unknown variables — and one of the first important questions that will arise is, “How much does it cost to rent a store in the mall?”

Luckily, you’ve come to Peerspace, the largest online marketplace for hourly venue rentals. We offer access to one-of-a-kind spaces in thousands of cities and towns across North America and beyond. And yes, this includes fabulous retail spaces and venues you may never have realized would make sensational mall store alternatives. Ahead, we’ll discuss how much it costs to rent a mall store, the alternatives we just discussed, and how to go about renting one.

First of all, does location matter?

How to rent space at an antique mall

Absolutely! Temporary retail experiences are all about getting the right location where customers will engage with your product or service. However, many malls make you go through hoops to find out the prices for the best available stores. Therefore, considering alternative locations to make your target shoppers feel comfortable in a post-pandemic world is crucial.

Luckily, you have Peerspace, the largest online marketplace for hourly venue rentals, including — but not limited to — retail space! Check out our platform to rent retail space for your event. You can rent actual retail space or something a bit more unique that you can dress up to suit your needs, like a warehouse, loft, gallery, and more.

We’ve compiled information on what rental spaces in the mall have to offer, as well as an estimate on what it costs to rent one. We’ll also offer some alternatives to mall spaces that include charming cafes, bright art galleries, and so much more that you can book with ease on Peerspace.

Why do people rent stores in the mall?

How to rent space at an antique mall

Although malls are not as popular as they once were, the shopping centers are still a hub for shoppers to peruse their favorite stores and discover new ones. There are many reasons why someone would want to rent a store in the mall — whether it be to open a boutique, provide services, or entertain.

Pop-up shops and retail experiences are other growing areas for malls and rental spaces. Companies want to create unique experiences that aren’t like a traditional brick-and-mortar store. These short-term events can give brands of all sizes and budgets a chance to launch. Doing so, they enter a physical market in a city or country they haven’t had a presence in yet.

Small businesses that specialize in local, artisanal products benefit from introducing their products in an established setting. The temporary shops can create exciting buzz on social media and draw new customers to your company.

Mall alternatives

Besides mall spaces, you can also try other unique rental spaces like cafes, art galleries, renovated warehouses, or modern storefronts to give your pop-up a special flare.

How you choose the type of space best suited to your needs depends on several factors. It’s especially crucial to consider the type of space in relation to your brand, your products, and your ideal shopper.

For instance, if you own a high-end self-care brand that caters to customers who want natural products, setting up shop in an area of your city where there are lots of spas and boutique shops is wise. Conversely, if your product is hip and geared towards people in their early twenties, renting a renovated warehouse that is gritty yet exciting can be fruitful.

We’ll include some fun suggestions later in the article to give you an idea of what’s out there besides space in a mall. But next, we’ll continue answering the primary question: “How much does it cost to rent a store in the mall?”

How to Decorate an Antique Mall Booth

Whether displaying antiques by color, era or similarity, it is important to create a tidy and inviting atmosphere that brings customers into your spot and makes them comfortable enough to spend time looking around, says antiques dealer Shirley Mastney, owner of Medina Depot Antique Mall in Ohio. In addition, she adds, items are best displayed when they are easily seen and accessible. The key is to create different levels of height and depth within your booth.

Create height with shelving units, positioning taller ones against walls or back-to-back as dividers within a booth. Place smaller shelves on tables for a fuller-looking display.

Establish a walkway in the booth with the placement of tables and other furniture. A long table across the front allows people to browse smaller items easily, yet can inhibit them from entering the booth. Tables scattered within the spot or different sized tables grouped together invites customers in to view larger items and leads them through the booth.

Focus lighting on key areas of the booth to accent items, or illuminate dark areas customers normally have trouble seeing. Also use lighting to create a mood or as an attention-getter, via flashing or colored lights. Incorporating antique lighting sources that are also for sale is ideal.

Hang framed artwork and other items that can be displayed on any available wall space. Hanging groups of like items, such as kitchen utensils, is a smart use of such space. Use room dividers or backs of tall shelves as wall space in a pinch.

Place wooden boxes and crates or small stepladders in the booth to create dimension. Display items inside boxes/crates turned on their sides, or place items on top of upside down boxes/crates. Arrange them on tables, stack them on the floor or elevate items in the back by piling small boxes on shelves.

Accent displays with linens, doilies and greenery — such as artificial flowers or ivy — for a finishing touch.

Antique booths are prone to clutter. Avoid overfilling your spot.

Keep fragile items securely displayed.

If possible, hang jewelry, linens and clothing to make it easier for customers to look through.

Do not lean framed pictures or racks in corners or against furniture — it looks cluttered and is a potential hazard.

Think of unusual but practical ways to display items, such as displaying linens on the slatted side of a baby crib or hanging old photos from a clothesline, like in a darkroom.


Make sure shelving units are stable and secure.

Leave enough space in your booth for customers to walk through comfortably. Walkways that are too narrow or cluttered are potential hazards.

For instance, you can rent a retail space or a commercial kitchen on Peerspace that has everything you need, minus the lease and other legal documents that go with renting a space in a mall food court. Plus, you can rely on Peerspace’s incredible Concierge service to arrange for any extras you need at your food court-like venue.

So then, we will also present the question: How much does it cost to rent these spaces on Peerspace?


Retail spaces and commercial kitchens on Peerspace cost about $95-$125 per hour.

We understand that it can be confusing when you need to book a mall food court space. Luckily, as the largest online marketplace for hourly venue rentals, we at Peerspace can shine a light on some of your concerns. Ahead, we’ll address everything you need to know about renting space in a mall food court. We’ll also present viable options that may be better suited to your brand, personal taste, and budget. Let’s go!

Why should you rent space in a mall food court?

How to rent space at an antique mall

Malls can be incredibly lucrative locations for restaurateurs. Typically, they constantly have visitors at the various stores throughout the building, who are bound to get hungry at some point during their day of shopping. Rather than having your restaurant in some out-of-the-way location, particularly one where people have to drive to get there or else locate scant street parking, it’s much better to situate yourself in a high-traffic area such as a mall food court.

That way, visitors will spot your restaurant as they’re getting hungry and be drawn to it, helping you to make big profits. If they’re happy with their food, they may also seek out your restaurant next time they’re at the mall (and even bring their friends!), earning you return customers as well as new ones. Likewise, in bustling cities like Los Angeles, foodies can often discover underrated and hidden culinary gems in assuming strip malls and food courts.

How do you rent space in a mall food court?

How to rent space at an antique mall

To start, do some online research into spaces at malls in your area. Unfortunately, we can’t give any specific advice on this aspect of the process, since every local region will be different. But make sure you keep tabs on what the prices are per square foot, so you can compare your options. Then ask for a tenant information package from the mall, which includes all the info you’ll need to prepare for renting a space — everything from building permits to security, to trash removal, and more.

As you’re comparing options, keep a particular eye out for whether or not restaurants, as well as other stores in the mall, appear to be getting a lot of business and doing well. This will tell you if you’re likely to find business success there, too.

Consider the lease and its terms

Once you’ve chosen a space, be sure to be very careful in reviewing the lease. How much will you have to pay — is it just a flat payment or also a share of the income you make from your restaurant, for instance? How much are the security deposit and other initial payments? And how long does the lease extend?

There are benefits and drawbacks to a more extended lease; with a lease lasting a few years, you know that you’re going to have plenty of time to lay the groundwork for a long-lasting business. At the same time, you also lose the possibility to change locations if your mall location becomes less lucrative. Be mindful of up-and-coming places that may not seem bustling at first, but may eventually draw in a larger crowd as the neighborhood becomes more popular.

Once you’ve decided where you’re going to establish your new food court restaurant, be sure to advertise the opening to get a lot of new customers at the beginning and set your business on the right track!

How much does it cost to rent a space in a mall food court?

How to rent space at an antique mall

We can’t make a broad generalization, as spaces in mall food courts will vary enormously in price depending on a number of factors. This includes where the mall is located, as space in a mall in a city with a higher cost of living (such as Los Angeles, CA, or Boston, MA) is typically going to cost more than in a mall in a very affordable city (for instance, Fort Wayne, IN, or Cleveland, OH).

In addition, a mall that’s very popular with lots of visitors will be able to command higher rental prices for its spaces. Finally, some malls are significantly more high-end than others and tend to sell costly luxury products and draw wealthier visitors — this allows them to charge higher rental prices as well. An example of these types of malls include South Coast Plaza in the city of Costa Mesa, CA, just south of Los Angeles, which is home to famed fashion houses like Louis Vuitton, Hermès, and Christian Louboutin.

All these factors and more are why prices vary so widely. However, we can say that the average mall rent is now at least $800 per month as of 2021. At a smaller shopping mall, that price drops lower to about $20 to $25 per square foot. Among the leading mall property real estate companies, prices per square foot range from about $29 to $62.

That may seem quite high, but the reason that retail space at malls may cost so much more than at a separate store is that they also tend to get significantly more consistent visitors and foot traffic.

Additional Info

Important details about selling or consigning.

RIAM may be willing to purchase certain items outright at a wholesale rate if you prefer not to wait for them to get sold at a retail price over time. Ask us about this option. We also make house calls for large collections and may be willing to purchase your entire estate or any fraction of it outright. Full estate clean-out is also available. Please inquire for details.

Our standard consignment term is 60 days. If your item doesn’t sell within that timeframe, the selling price is automatically reduced (usually by 30%) for the next 30 days. If it still doesn’t sell, the price is automatically reduced again (usually by another 20%). If after 90 days the item has still not sold then the consignor must either take it back or contact us to make other arrangements. Items not reclaimed within 15 days after the expiration of the consignment term shall be considered abandoned and the store will dispose of them at its sole discretion. As a courtesy RIAM will send you a reminder postcard if your item does not sell after the first 60 days, however we accept no responsibility for undelivered, lost, or forgotten notices.

No matter what day your consignment is initiated or what day your item sells, all sales are tallied on the last day of each month. Payments are then processed and mailed out by the 10th of the following month. Mid-month payouts can usually be arranged for a $10 service fee.

While every reasonable effort is made to protect your items, occasional breakage and theft are unavoidable in all retail establishments. All consigned items are taken in at the risk of the consignor. In many cases your homeowner’s policy will cover such losses (subject to your deductible). RIAM offers an insurance option for those who are concerned about such potential losses. The fee is calculated at 6% of the item’s retail value (for example, insurance for a $200 item is $12) and must be purchased at the time of consignment. In the event of theft or destruction of the insured item, the policy will pay the consignor the net value of the item (after the store’s commission) and where practical the damaged item is forfeited to the insurer. Thus for example, an insured stolen item currently priced at the time of loss at $500 with a 40% commission would pay the consignor $300. Minor “shop wear” is not covered by this policy.

RIAM management might determine that certain items may sell better on-line than in our shop. We will offer this alternative to you if appropriate.

Our fees are the same as in-store consignment, except that a $60 non-refundable listing fee will be charged for any item reclaimed by the consigner before it is sold. This listing fee will be fully waived if the item sells. No listing fee is charged for items listed using an absolute auction format starting at $9.99.

This wasn’t our idea originally, but we like the idea and wanted to show our support as well !

Come on down to Mill Creek Antique Mall and pick up your soldier soldier and show your support today !

How to rent space at an antique mall

Sometimes, on any particular day, you never know what event might happen that can change someone’s day or even be something that they, as well as yourself, might remember that moment, a day or even for a lifetime.
This was one of those days.
A gentleman named Xenos Lopez and his family came in and were shopping here at Mill Creek Antique Mall, something that he said he would usually not choose do as the Antique Store and Thrift Store shopping is not his thing, when his wife spotted a Military uniform hanging in one of my spaces.
He brought it to the counter and said “this is my uniform!”
Apparently it was lost during a move years ago and he thought he might never see it again. It had made its way into our store, waiting for him for years.
They graciously offered to pay for it, but that wasn’t the right thing to do. He earned that uniform and was obviously proud of it, and he allowed me to be blessed and return it to him, the rightful owner.
So just goes to show you, you never know what a day might bring, who you might meet and what can happen!
Thank you for your service Sir !


Since Xenos and I have shared this story on Facebook, it has made it all over the USA and beyond. I have heard from people all over the Country, even Canada !

Two local stations, 23 and 29 here in Bakersfield, did stories on this. Since then, I have heard from people in Los Angeles, and several other places in California, and other states like New Jersey, Florida, Texas, Iowa, Ohio to name just some of them.

I think the bigger story is, how far this story has reached. Something that I thought was just another day, returning something that had been lost, and a simple thanks to someone that had served our Country.

This just shows how much people want to hear some good news instead of all the bad news that is out there now days!

Here are some of the places that I know it made the news.

We offer the inventory and variety of hundreds of antique stores in our convenient and fun antique mall atmosphere!

You’ll love shopping for Antiques and Vintage items here!

Our outdoor flea markets have grown to be some of the most loved markets by both sellers and buyers. These flea markets are well established well managed and well attended.

Over 100 spaces of bargains galore from vendors from all around the state. Held the 3rd Sunday of every month April – October in the huge parking lot of our busy mall and as always FREE admission.

Terry VanHorn from Zack’s Tunes DJ service plays music and entertains you while you eat great food and enjoy the great fellowship of our flea market vendors. Don’t be surprised if we just bust out and start doing the Cupid Shuffle or the Cha Cha Slide! Dealers and shoppers really look forward to each and every one of our flea markets. Flea markets are held from 10am-3pm but many vendors stay past 3pm since the mall is open until 6pm.

Anybody can be a vendor. You can’t have a successful flea market without great vendors and I truly have the best bunch of traveling vendors plus a large amount of newbies that continuously come and often “sell out.” We can accommodate 100 spaces and most times sell out in advance. The secret is to keep it simple. Our flea markets are one day. Pre-reserve your space by going into the Mega Mall or calling us at 517-487-3275 with a credit card. Just your name and your money will secure your space. The cost is $25.00 if pre-reserved 30 days in advance. Late registration all the way up to and including the day of, if space is available, is $30.00 for a huge 18 x 20 space (2 parking spots).

All shows are held rain or shine. Since we heavily advertise all shows in advance there are no refunds or credit if you chose not to show up due to inclement weather or other reason.

Dealer set-up starts at 6:30 am (NOT BEFORE) and is advertised to start at 10 am but customers start to show up around 9 am. Upon your arrival I will assign you a space. You may pay for the entire season or remainder of the season in full to permanently reserve the same space and to gain early set up rights (prior to 6:30 am) if you choose to. You may choose to use your car on the same space with you but it must be within that 18×20 space. You may also pull up to your assigned space, unload and then park in the customer parking lot. Bring your own tables or rent our 6 foot tables delivered to your space for $6.00 each.

I have saved the best for last.
Free doughnuts and juice to all participating dealers!

Remember anybody can be a vendor and sell anything from antiques to garage sale stuff. Our flea markets even commonly include produce. No food or beverages unless you are one of our food vendors. Our flea markets are also a great way to advertise or market your business cheaply to a large amount of people in a short time. We encourage and welcome new faces!

The third Sunday of every month April through November.
