Great Stuff For You on Instagram

Hi, it’s me, Cathy Merco, and my business “Great Stuff” is for sale, but don’t despair, Bricey is now managing the store and more information about her will be posted here soon.

A Florida Lifestyle Business

After 20 plus years running this & 2 other businesses it’s time to slow down.

Real Estate only / Business with or without Real Estate / with or without inventory.

We’re now only open part time, a day or two a week. If you open 7 days a week you should way more than quadruple our sales. You can also make an extra an extra  $500 to $1000 a week on ebay depending on how quickly and how many items you list. We’re willing to take a trade for a house in Florida. Eighteen years of good will, and you know you can’t put a price on that (but we did). The gross sales figure below is without our ebay business which we are not selling. We also have a concrete and wrought iron yard items and furniture business across the street which adds to our actual gross which we are not selling but we may be willing to sell that side of the business as well if you care to negotiate.

This is a unique opportunity to own a thriving turnkey consignment business which has been in continuous operation in Hernando for 18 years, and 7 years before that in Martin County. Between I-75 & the Suncoast Highway, at the center of Rt 98, Rt 50, and Rt 41 – located right in the City of Brooksville Great Stuff has established a huge client base over the last two decades. Great Stuff specializes in Unique & Eclectic Indoor &  Outdoor Decorator Items, Collectibles, Antiques, Art, Tchotchkes, “Shabby Chic,” Furniture, Gifts, Post Cards & Ephemera, House-wares, Toys, Clothing, Hats, Jewelry, Garden Decorations and Much More.  Accepting consignments by appointment. This is a place where great stuff is constantly exchanging hands and money is being made. We specialize in the resale of vintage and antique items – everything from: Home & Garden, Pottery & Glass, Art, Clothing, Shoes & Accessories, Toys & Hobbies, Crafts, Sporting Goods, Consumer Electronics, Jewelry & Watches, Dolls & Bears, Business & Industrial, Cameras & Photo, Books, Baby stuff, Music / Entertainment Memorabilia, Furniture, etc and sell almost everything. People bring in items of value in exchange for cash, trade, consignment, to put on eBay.

NOTE: eBay selling is a very viable option for this business.  With enough listings built up you can easily make an extra an extra  $500 to $1000 a week on ebay depending on how quickly and how many items you list.

We sell the items for reasonable prices and tend to make excellent margins. With the help of Great Stuff’s active Facebook Page and established Website, business is thriving and growing.

8,400.00 Square Feet of zoned commercial property: 1352 under roof, 816 under porch. All S.F. Calculations are based on exterior building dimensions.  Pavement, concrete walks/drive (PV1).

We are more than happy to help teach our systems and ways to new owners

Great Stuff is the only game in town when it comes to the diverse range and sheer number of interesting collectibles to buy. Centrally located between SR 50, Truck Route 50, and RT 41 all just blocks away. Several preferred dining attractions and coffee houses in almost every direction just blocks away. The Brooksville Depot Museum and a bicycle path and part are also just 2 short blocks away. The Brooksville Blueberry Festival, Founders Week Celebration, Christmas Parade, Markets & other events all occur just 3 or 4 blocks north on Main Street as well.

This business is primed for selling in store and consignment items on eBay. With a bit of training in how to photograph, research, list, pack & ship eBay is a very real opportunity to grow sales selling unique one of a kind items. Great Stuff currently regularly draws clients from five surrounding counties, with additional visitors from Orlando, Gainesville and farther – plus the Autumn to Spring boost from European tourists looking for Genuine Old “Made in America” souvenirs to bring home and American “Snow Birds” with second homes in the area.
