I owned and operated two antique malls for over seven years. Each one had approximately twenty-five dealers who rented space from me. I had about 25% of the total space for my own items.
My own offerings were of a wide variety of antique, vintage, and collectible items including a lot of estate jewelry. One of my favorite type of items were "the unusual" and "weird". As I used to tell my dealers, "Weird sells".
I actually have dealt with antiques and collectible since the mid-70s after many years of collecting Hopalong Cassidy items and other western movie memorabilia.
