Here in NJ we have a Shelter in place order closing all non essential business until further notice. We run a 12000 square ft antique mall that hosts 130 dealers.For many this is the only source of income . These dealers sell various Antiques , Vintage , Hand Crafted, and Art items not only in our brick and mortar store but many of them also sell at Antique shows, Craft shows and Arts Festivals all around the area which have all been cancelled for the season.
Keeping people safe and healthy is our top priority, so now we are trying to find a way to make sure these 130 dealers make it through the pandemic and come out on the other side still with their business intact.
Our goal of $16000 will cover one month of rent and all utilities for all 130 dealers, easing the financial burden and making sure they keep their businesses. In addition, we will be able to keep our hourly employees on payroll.
If only part of the goal is raised we will divide the to assist each dealer. If we can raise more then the goal we would then like to reach out to other similar small businesses in our community.
Life as we know it has changed for us all , and now is surely the time to come together (while staying apart).
This antique mall has been part of the community for nearly 6 years , we want to be around for another 60.
Thank you so much for your support and for your time.
