I've check into booth space and have found a spot that is very reasonable - Frisco Mercantile, the starter space is 5x10' and $200 per month (the next nearest shop is nearly $600 for that size space!)
I know that I have a good eye for quality vintage pieces and interesting, unique items. And I think that my artwork will fit nicely with vintage items. I also have a passion for marketing and "dressing", even my traveling booth ends up looking like an antique's booth:
(I was going to insert a pic of my recent booth set up here, but somehow instead erased all the images from my camera phone! EEEEK)
I need your help though! To my friends in the blogosphere who have shops or booths:
- What do you consider "essential" to your booth/business? (i.e. a few big shopping/stock ups or continual small shopping trips, a storage space, permenant "fixtures, etc.)
- What do you wish you had done differently when you started?
