The simplest vendors are one prim signs that sell only one item per vendor.  You see them in stores everywhere!  There are free versions of scripts for this type of vendor available.  It's really easy to set up this sort of vendor.  Rez a prim of the appropriate size.  Drop the script and the item you're selling into it.  Texture the face of the sign with a picture of your item, and you're done.  You'll notice that most items you buy consist of more than one object.  Most sellers will put the parts of the thing they are selling, along with a picture of it, a thank you note, a user information note, and a store landmark into a box, and then put the box into the vendor.

Multi-item vendors are more complicated.  They have several display panels to show a selection of their contents, and users can click buttons to cycle the vendor through its contents until they find the item they want to buy.  There are commercial versions of these available, and they are relatively pricey but have lots and lots of features.

Most stores use the single item type vendors, and most customers prefer them because they are so straightforward to use.  Vehicle sellers seem to favor the multi-item vendors for some reason.
