Since I'm new to selling my creations, I'm trying to determine which the best venue to sell is, which is a BIG decision.
-Retail vs Wholesale
-If Retail, then where......
"Unlisted" (An artisan store located @ Co Line & University)
"The Emporium" (A specialty store in Castle Rock)
"Etsy" (online marketplace)
-If Wholesale, then where.....
Big Retail Stores like Nordstroms
-Craft Shows...If yes, then which ones (there are a million)
Here's what I've decided...
Since winter is just around the corner, and my product is worn in colder weather, I need to act fast, but I've gotten a late start....YIKES !
- I applied to several shows and was accepted to the Parker Mountain Pine Yuletide Bazaar at the Parker Fieldhouse, November 11th and Grandmothers House at Tagawa Gardens, November 7th-11th. I was a little late to find room this year in any other popular Holiday Show. These two shows overlap 1 day, so more planning is needed to ensure adequate inventory, timely set up/take down and a good looking booth.
- I applied for a booth at the "Emporium" in Castle Rock and am on their wait list.
- After the Holiday Shows, and I know what my inventory level is, I will probably apply to show at "Unlisted" on Co Line & University, which is an Artisan boutique..
- Seriously thinking of taking my baby products to several hospital shops and sell them some products at wholesale.
