How it Works

Putting It All Together

Shopping

Shopping here at Simply Vintage is primarily in store. We will have certain items available online, especially large items we cannot have in the store. We will also have exclusive online items and specials, so make sure you stay connected by entering your email below or come in to the store and we can do it for you. If you do not have an email, we can use your phone number to enter you into our rewards program. We also have gift cards and we accept vouchers from some of our partner organizations.

Our rewards programs varies some. We do allow for 10% off all apparel on your next visit for every $10 you spend. We also have 10% off rewards on most of our vintage items such as toys, for every $25 spent. Some items have to be excluded as we have them at rock bottom prices, some consignment items may be available for rewards, but this is not common as we do not own those products.

We often run specials spontaneously. We often run Facebook only specials, which often only requires the quote of the day. At other times, we offer discounts to the last customer of the day. We love to do spontaneous and fun specials, so stay connected to our website and Facebook/Twitter channels.

We have two ways to do consignment. One way is to simply rent space (Square Footage) from us and the area is yours to put your items in and sell. We also have consignment for those items that will not fit the traditional in store method. Those items will also be available online and on Facebook.

If you are looking for something specific, let us know by calling us, coming into the store, or sending us a message through our contact us page.

The shopping experience at Simply Vintage is important to us, we want to know your thoughts. We love hearing from you, please send us your thoughts through our contact page or in our anonymous suggestion box in store. If you liked our store, we appreciate all reviews on our Facebook and Google Plus profiles.

Become a Partner

To become a partner, all you have to is ask! We have a page dedicated to becoming a partner, you can fill out this form and we will contact you. You can also call us or come into the store and talk to one of us. It really is that easy.

We will then meet with you and discuss how we can help. We would like to help everyone, but reality is we can only help a finite amount of organizations. We can make that determination one we assess  your situation.

We feel we have a lot to offer our partner organizations. Some of our services are:

  • Donations
  • Fundraising assistance
  • Marketing opportunities – co-marketing and event/fundraising through digital channels
  • Assisting in employment opportunities – we also have a list of volunteer opportunities for job seekers that need to enhance their resume. We can teach resume writing, interviewing techniques, and help get those in need prepared for work status
  • Assisting in your own social media management/set up

If your needs are not listed, give us a shout anyway and we can see if we can adapt to helping your organization.

Donating

Donating is the lifeblood for many non-profits. We work with these non-profits to help bring them donations and services free of any charge. We also purchase or trade many of these donations as offers in our store.

We are a drop off point for donations, we also pick up donations at your location if needed. We maximize each and every donation. Nothing goes to waste. Having said that, we do recommend donating items that are “gently” used. With limited manpower and resources, we have to go through each item to place it where it is needed most. You, the donor, can help us by providing items that can be used.

Our donation page lists some items that we cannot accept for our partners. Although, some items we have other opportunities for you. We often receive requests for specific items, let us know what you have and we will see if we can find someone in need of that item.

So please, bring your donations!

Consignment

Consignment items can be a tricky endeavor. We understand why so many stores refuse to accept consignment. We do accept consignment, but on a case by case process.

To run a store, inventory is a huge part of the success of that store. Having consignment adds an additional layer of security and processes. We make sure all of our consignment items are under strict controls. With a finite amount of space, we must also consider turnover. We cannot have items in the store for an extended amount of time.

What that means for you? We will do everything in our power to make sure your items sell and sell fast. All consignment items receives additional attention online. We will have a specific area in our online shop that includes all consignment items. We also promote those items online through social media channels.

Currently, we are looking for local vendors that need a storefront to sell their items. For example, do you have a scented candle business? Do you make your own crafts? Do you re-purpose vintage furniture? Do you own a print company and print local sports tees and sweatshirts? If so, we want your items in our store!

We are a local thrift store and we want local vendors! Contact through email (info@simplyvintagejoplin.com), phone (417-553-3455), our contact page, smoke signals, or come into the store at 705 Illinois Avenue Suite A-1.
