The shop will open for business sometime mid November and be open thru December 31st. Our location is the former Life Is Good space on the first floor of the Peabody Place Tower facing Main St. Our address is 100 Peabody Place #175.

Why We Like It

Our store is located in a high-traffic area of Main Street on the trolley line and across the street from Majestic Grille and the Gayoso House Apartments. We’ll be located on the first floor of the Peabody Place Tower which has it’s own parking garage connected to it and there is a paarking lots across the street.

Seller Fees

Each seller will pay a participation fee which is a portion of the operating expenses for the shop plus a commission on each item sold.  The seller fees are not tied to a specific amount of space. Instead we will work with each seller and allocate space based on the product being sold, number of items, and where it fits within the overall store design plan.   

There are multiple seller plans available depending on your desired commission rate.

Seller PlansParticipation FeeCommission
on Items Sold
Plan A$20025%
Plan B$27515%
Plan C$37510%
Plan D$5003%

Commission Credits for Working in the Store

Part of the allure of our store is having great customer service so we want to encourage as many sellers as possible to work in the shop in exchange for a reduction in the commission paid on each item you sell.  You will accrue hours that will equate to a reduction in commission applied to your next month’s sales. 

NOTES:

  • Working in the store is not guaranteed and is subject to shift availability and business need
  • Commission reduction amount cannot be reduced beyond 3% which covers the credit card processing charges

As an example, Lisa signed up for Seller Plan B ($200 + 20% commission). She worked 20 hours in the month of November. This means she will have her commission reduced for the month of December by 7%, so she will only pay 13% commission on her December sales.

Hours Worked per MonthCommission Reduced By

Store Layout & Merchandising

Market901 is designed to look & feel like a traditional retail store with a cohesive store theme, branding, colors, etc. Unlike a craft show where each vendor has complete freedom to design their display, we have to balance the needs to each vendor with the needs of the store.  We will work with each seller and allocate space based on the product being sold, number of items, and where it fits within the overall store design plan. If you have a specific display that you would like to use, let us know and we will try to accommodate it.

NOTE: Based on the space available, some of your merchandise may be stored as back stock and refilled as items sell out.Search for:Search
