The History

JT’s Place has been selling quality new and used items to the public since 1996 under various names. Over the years the outlets to purchase the merchandise has also changed. Over the years they have set up shop in outdoor and indoor flea markets. They have offered their products via eBay and their on e-commerce website. JT’s place has sold their quality new and use merchandise from their own brick and  mortar store.

1994 – 1996

Began selling used merchandise at an outside flea market, Franklin Road Flea Market located in Newnan, Georgia. Began making contacts with wholesale vendors and added new products to the mix later that year.

Since sales at an outdoor flea market suffer when bad and cold weather sets in they decided to expand. The owner opened up a second location in an indoor flea market in Bowdon Junction, Ga. that operated all year round; and sat up shop at the Franklin Road Flea Market from Memorial Day through Labor Day.

1997 – 2000

A business license was obtained and the owner opened up a brick and mortar store in LaGrange, Georgia under the name of World of Variety. All merchandise was pulled from the flea markets and place in the store. World of Variety stayed in operation  at the LaGrange location untill the owner moved to Tennessee.

2000-2016

All the unsold merchandise from World of Variety made the move to Tennessee with the owner. Once settled in the name was changed to Almost Wholesale. The merchandise was sold via eBay and at a an outdoor flea market in Greenbrier, Tennessee, when the weather allowed.  As the fees on eBay and the cost of shipping sky rocketed Almost wholesale ventured into e-Commerce selling on-line under Almost Wholesale.

2017

After retiring the owner opened up a publishing company as he began writing full-time. At that time he placed Almost wholesale under ThunderHorse Publishing. The e-Commerce website for Almost Wholesale and its affiliates were shut down and new domain names purchased. Almost Wholesale became Joe’s Bookstore and More. The bookstore, discontinued selling used items and focused solely on new merchandise along with books from independent authors that used ThunderHorse Publishing.

Later that year the owner had an opportunity to rent an inside  booth at a local flea market close to his residence. Since his humble beginnings in the retail world  had started in a flea market he jumped at the opportunity.

The first step was to pull Joe’s Book Store and More from the internet.  Since this was a father and son adventure they decided not to go back yo the Almost Wholesale name and start from scratch. The new name JT’s Place.
