How to Search & Buy Your Favorite Crafts and Antiques
( or close this window when done)

INTRODUCTION started as a site to allow Craft Malls to provide daily sales information to their crafters online. The concepts developed here work equally well for Antique Malls, too. The whole process is automatic (ie uploading of sales data files) and requires very little upkeep on the part of the store owner.

The next phase was the addition of a Virtual Mall. It soon became apparent that this could become a "hub" for store owners, dealers, and shoppers. Hence the name

Unlike other Virtual Malls on the Internet, this one was specifically designed to work for and with existing brick and mortar store fronts. The Virtual Mall was designed for the convenience of the consumer to be able to "shop" on-line and have the option to pick up the merchandise. Hence, the reason for the Location Search by zipcode. Also note the name of the store is displayed with every item searched.

The Shopping Cart was designed specifically for this site. Orders are separated and passed to the respective stores and from there the store can print Special Order Forms for their dealers and make arrangements for payment and pickup from the customer.
