I am in the midst of moving my B & M store to a better, higher-traffic location, after ten years in the same spot. Grand opening June 3rd!  So I have NO business thinking about doing yet more one thing.  And yet....and yet......the temptation is always there!

Such exciting news!
Can't wait to hear how the opening goes.
Several biz's in my area are in the process of moving their B & M's to higher traffic areas.
It's a good thing.
Keep us updated, Wonder Woman!

:o

Even if they're wanting more etsy-style stuff, you carry that as well. Bizarre

Oh well

STILL no word from 11 Main.  Sigh.  It's just as well.

New storefront moving along nicely.  Even had my first sale and we don't have our Grand Opening until June 3rd.  A woman called me today...she works in an office in the new shopping center and was peering in our windows and fell in love with a piece of furniture.  Bodes well I think. 

Does anyone know anyone who actually HAS been accepted by 11 Main?

Here's an article I found about 11 Main.  It sounds like they are primarily inviting Ebay sellers.

I'm going to apply again letting 11Main know that I'm an eBay seller with 15,000+ feedback in excellent standing.

That might be the way in. There's a reason why they want to attract eBayers and not Amazon people at the moment and only they know for sure why.

Done under my most popular eBay ID.
Let's see how this application goes.

Good Luck!

I do not do Ebay so my guess is that I am not going to be invited.

Made it into the second stage/look-over with my eBay account.
Nope. Still not a go.
But they will continue to keep me in mind.
I'll continue to request.

color me surprised, I just got email saying I was accepted.  :o  I suspect it was because of the gold jewelry and the handcrafted southwestern sterling jewelry, but dunno.  Not sure if they're wanting to be more etsy-ish or amazon-ish or ebay-ish or ... ?

I hope they don't allow all the counterfeit items like Alibaba and Aliexpress.

Like you, I'm surprised they didn't scrub your posts. 'Course, doing so would (imho) implicate them as co-conspirators (since they'd be trying to help hide the truth about the counterfeit goods).

There was someone whining awhile back on Amazon forums (I don't remember if it was over getting booted or over an AtoZ claim) and it turned out he was selling those fake bars.  He got a good tongue lashing on the forum from fellow vendors.  Sadly, he's just one of tons of ppl selling that crap to unsuspecting buyers. :(

Congrats on being accepted!  :D!   Please let us know how it goes.  It would be great to hear the insider point of view!
