Antique Plaza has an assortment of booths, shelves and cases immediately available for rent. If you like shopping for unique vintage finds, you’ll love curating them for your own space.You’re able to choose what kind of items your booth will carry. Here at Antique Plaza, we have vendors that specialize in paintings, baseball memorabilia, kitchen findings and even neon liquor signs. You can also carry a modge podge of your favorite things. Most of our vendors started out as collectors, so why not try something new?!

 

Having a space in Antique Plaza allows you the ability to earn some side money, while enjoying a hobby and passion. The best part is, you basically have your own small store, but you don’t have to man it! With a prime location in Downtown Mesa, the store sees a large influx of people each day. Tourists and locals flock to the Downtown shopping area, drawn by the eclectic shops, restaurants and festivals.

 

Below are some ideas of how you can take an empty booth, and turn it into something great!

 

Booths are available upstairs and downstairs and start at $100.

The high in Mesa has finally dropped to a chilly 76 degrees this week, which can only mean one thing. Fall has FINALLY come to the valley, and just in time for Thanksgiving. Now, if you’re like me, Thanksgiving brings up images of families gathered around tables, being stuffed to the brim of delicious home cooked food, and warm homes. One of my personal favorite things about fall, and Thanksgiving, is the way people decorate their homes. I enjoy wreaths, dishes, and ALL THINGS FALL. That is exactly what you can find in our window this month. The display is perfectly designed to get you in the spirit of the season, and even features plenty of items that could be easily incorporated into your home this fall.

 

Below, you’ll find a teaser of items from our window, but its best to stop by if you’d really like to check it out! And with Christmas fast approaching, it won’t be fall at Antique Plaza for much longer….so hurry in!
