WHAT’S YOUR STORY? WHY THAT NAME?
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Find us at 2030 Swamp Pike, Gilbertsville, PA 19525 (link to map?), directly in front of Freed’s Market and next door to Our Place Restaurant. We’re conveniently located near most local highways (422, 100, 309, 29, 73 and the Northeast Extension) and situated about 2-3 hours from NYC, 1 hour from Lancaster or Delaware, 45 minutes from Philly, and less than 10 minutes from the Philadelphia Premium Outlets.
WHAT ARE YOUR STORE HOURS?
Typically, we are open Thursdays through Mondays, closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. (Current store hours can be found at the bottom of the page.) That said, due to COVID, our new schedule will be Fridays and Saturdays, 10-5, and Sundays, 10-4, until further notice. We’ll expand hours as we work hard to return to normal business operations. Keep an eye on our website or Facebook/Instagram pages for updates if anything should change.
WHERE CAN I GET THE LATEST INFO ON STORE SALES, ETC.?
Sign up for our VIP newsletter! (not sure what link). We NEVER sell your information, we keep email communications to a minimum, we only share newsworthy info, and you’ll get VIP access to sales promotions, special events and more! You can also find us on Facebook (link) and Instagram (link). Follow us!
ARE YOU A CONSIGNMENT STORE?
Alas, no. We rent space to vendors who then sell their items here. That’s our business model. At some future point, we may invite the public to sell via our NEW online web store (CLICK HERE). But not yet. Feel free to check back for updates.
DO YOU BUY ITEMS?
Thanks for asking! At this time, our entire business focus is to sell items for our vendors, however they acquire them: private sales, estate sales, auctions, flea markets, etc. If they’re interested in buying, you’ll find business cards displayed in their rented spaces so you can contact them and potentially arrange a meeting offsite. Not all vendors buy, so we cannot supply you with a list. Right now, displayed business cards are the best and fairest way to handle this type of request. Thanks for understanding.
DO YOU HAVE A “WISH LIST” WHERE I CAN PUT MY NAME AND ITEMS I SEEK?
Yup. Click here (email link, or link to that thing we talked about) to contact us, and we’ll inform our co-op team! We regularly update them on wish-list items.
CAN YOU HELP ME ACQUIRE A SPECIFIC ITEM?
Depends. We’re great at tracking down hard-to-find stuff. But we can’t do that for free, darn it. Consult us! (email link here) We’ve actually helped many customers find things they couldn’t get otherwise. If it benefits us both and you can acquire it affordably, hey! Let’s arrange something.
WILL YOU DICKER ON PRICES?
We always offer 10% discounts on items greater than $10 ($10.01 and up). Some exceptions apply. See our About Us (CLICK HERE) section.
DO YOU OFFER VETERANS OR MILITARY DISCOUNTS?
HOW DO I BECOME A VENDOR?
Easy! Fill out our online application (link here, I don’t know to where or what, I’ll get you the info needed). We’re a co-op, which means there are certain guidelines to doing business here. We cover all that with you before lease signing, so you’re clearly informed. Please know we usually have a waiting list. But do not let that deter you from applying! Filling out an application is the only way to get your name in the pipeline. Takes just a few seconds. Apply today!
OK, YOU’RE A “CO-OP.” WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Our vendors rent space, and they also agree to help each other make sales. Together, we work as a team to keep costs low, protect inventory, assist customers and build the business. Cooperative effort = co-op. We have a helpful guidebook when vendors join. It explains how we do what we do in detail.
WILL YOU DONATE TO MY CAUSE?
THANK YOU for asking. We are a small business that truly cares about our community, and we wish we could donate to everything. But due to overwhelming requests in recent years, donations must be limited to what our budget can support and organizations with 501(c)(3) status. If you’d like to be considered for a gift basket or gift certificate donation, please email us (link here) details. Be sure to submit the information at least three months in advance to give ample time to review. We can’t promise we can help. But we’ll try.
