Hi Antiquing Friend,
Welcome to Finders Keepers Antique Mall & Coffee Shoppe. We appreciate your inquiry into our establishment and we look forward to helping you market your quality antique merchandise. We plan many events throughout the year to bring customers into our mall. Some of these are special events include Apple Jack and Arbor Day Flea Markets, Wine tastings, Mall sales, Open houses, Book Signings, Art Showings and many other fun events. You’ll want to join our fine dealers at Finders Keepers and be part of these activities as well.
Location, location, location…This is where you want to be! We have a prime location for an antique mall. The Crossroads Development is booming. Local merchants continue to report record sales. Fine tourist attractions such as the Iowa Welcome Center next door and the Lewis and Clark Expedition Center across the river are increasing activity in the area. Waubonsie State Park, just minutes away, is expanding over one thousand additional acres for family camping. This will add to the tourist travel already happening in the beautiful, historic and popular Nebraska City area.
We secure advertising in many quality publications and medias to promote Finders Keepers such as: Lincoln Journal Star, Omaha World Herald, Nebraska City News Press, Journal Democrat, Penny Press, Valley News, Discover Mid America, Collector’s Journal, Sidney Argus and Weekly Times. In addition to these fine publications, we have secured full-page ads on the back cover of both the I-29 & Southeast Nebraska Antique Directory. Have you seen our tourist signs on I-29? This along with our eight foot letters visible from I-29 spelling “Antiques” on the east side of our building is bringing traffic to our door. We have sponsored Antiques Roadshow on NETV and other community events. We also occasionally advertise on KETV channel 7 from Omaha, NE and KOLN-TV in Lincoln, NE.
We not only want to meet any expectations you may have, but we aim to exceed them. We offer dealers a clean, secure, & friendly environment to market their merchandise. We accept major credit cards, offer layaway and use an online check verification system. We provide tags for your merchandise, walker program for dealers to reduce rent cost, dealer newsletters, sales reports by email and a computer system to process your sales and track your inventory. Our rent/sales periods are based on a four-week block of time. All new dealers register for six-four week periods initially. You will need to contact us as to the availability of your booth or display case selection.
We are going to love antiquing with you!
