retail readiness – a giveaway to jump start your business.
Do you have a loyal following at Etsy, BigCartel or craft shows but want to see your work on the shelves of your favorite boutique? It takes more than having products ready to sell to earn a retailer’s interest, trust, and money. rena tom will help you get ready to approach stores and tell you how to make it easy for a store to buy from you.
For 6 years, rena owned and operated Rare Device in both New York and San Francisco. Rare Device was well-known for supporting the careers of small, innovative designers, and rena approaches her retail readiness workshops from the perspective of an independent retailer who was constantly reviewing product lines — and also a former jewelry and stationery designer who has been on the other side of the fence, selling her work in stores across the country.
we’d love to help you jumpstart your business and to do that we’re giving away one of rena’s retail readiness sessions in one of the following cities:
• San Francisco: march 27 / march 28
• Los Angeles: April 22
• New York City: May 20
• Seattle: July 9
• Portland dates TBD.
to enter, simply:
• simply ‘like’ the retail readiness facebook page. that way, you can keep up to date on rena’s workshops as they take place around the country (and eventually, online).
• Choose from the dates/locations above and leave a comment below briefly share with us what your goals are. as always, please leave a way to contact you on twitter, facebook or email.
• Enter by march 16th to win a spot in one of these classes, and we’ll announce a winner on the retail readinessfacebook page on march 21st.
thanks and have fun! we look forward to reading about your goals!
