Do you sell vintage items?
Getting the word out about your listings is hard work, and we at Got Vintage know that. That’s the reason GVS was created. Dealers are invited to promote their vintage items on the Got Vintage Shops For Sale Pages on Facebook. Each post made on GVS is indexed by Google, helping to improve your visibility among vintage buyers. The GVS staff will also market your items on Pinterest and Twitter, which exponentially improves your visibility among potential buyers.

Sellers have noticed substantial increases in site traffic after posting on the GVS For Sale Facebook pages. Increased traffic brings increased sales! Google Analytics prove that the boost in views and sales is directly related to participation on the GVS Facebook pages. Bottom line: we do the marketing work so you don't have to. Sounds great, right? Who doesn't love increased sales? At Got Vintage Shops, our motto is Show and Sell!

Got Vintage Shops also offers two Facebook support groups for dealers.
The Got Vintage Shops Dealer Support Group boasts a membership of over 100 experienced sellers. GVS members are available to help with any selling, advertising, pricing, and product identification questions you may have. They'll also celebrate with you when you make sales or find something awesome on a buying trip.

Our other group, Got Vintage Shops Jewelry Dealers Group also boasts over 100 knowledgeable "Jools". Members of this group are always willing to help identify unknown or unmarked pieces. They will also "Oooh" and "Ahhh" at your jewelry.  Just a heads up, they are easily distracted by shiny things. If you also get distracted by the glitz and glam of vintage jewelry, you'll fit right in!

We hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about what is going on at Got Vintage Shops and that you will stop in and give us a “Like” the next time you are on Facebook. Be sure to check back here for news from the world of Got Vintage!
