The owners of Main Street Gallery & Gifts, 23 South Main, have taken the for sale sign out of the window.
Although there has been a for sale sign in the business window for several months, the McClellan’s changed their minds.
“We took the building off the market,” Josh McClellan, one of the owners said. “I had it brought up to me that ‘Why would any more vendors come rent space if I was not investing my time into them?’ We decided to not sell it. We decided to have my wife come full time to assist with the store to help manage everything.”
Owners of the business are Josh, and his wife, Rechelle, and Josh’s mother, Julie McClellan. They sell home décor, flea market items, custom picture framing, and brew supplies. They have been in business since October 1st, 2000.
“We are wanting to expand the flea market with more booth spaces,” Josh said. “In order to do so, my wife, Rechelle McClellan, will be there to help vendors and buyers, so my mother, Julie, can focus on her upholstery business. Rechelle started full time on October 19.
Booth spaces have been in the lower level of the building and now they are extending the flea market booths to the first level.
The McClellan’s are taking names and phone numbers for a booth rental waiting list.
Booth space prices are as follows:
Lower Level 4X4 feet=$20.00
Lower Level 4X8 feet=$35.00
(Expanding on the main level)
Main Level 4X4 feet=$40.00
Main Level 4X8 feet=$70.00
“We take a 10% consignment fee. This fee pays for loading items, bags, credit card fees, etc.” Josh said.
Penny Vote Contest
“Main Street Gallery and Gifts will be doing a penny vote contest with our three (Main Street) windows,” Rechelle said. ” I have four vendors decorating the north and south windows. The money we raise will be donated to The Sharing Bucket. Please feel free to spread the news. Penny votes start the first Christmas open house downtown.”
“We will have mason jars that people can put pennies, dollars, etc. in, and whoever that has the most money wins,” she said.
“We are very excited about what the future holds for our business,” Josh said. “We are here to help the people and visitors of Fort Scott. We have something for everyone through all of our vendors. We couldn’t do it without all of them. We appreciate all the past, present, and future vendors of Main Street Gallery and Gifts.”
The phone number of the shop is 620.223.2210.
