gave you 2000 for soapmaking stuff.. what would you buy?
I am cracking up at your stupid rubber reindeer's LOL!Tabitha said:I would spend 4-5 hundred on streamlined soaping stuff & put the rest into fixing the car, etc.
I would pick maybe 3-4 items to make & make them in limited scents & sell the *h-e-double hocky stick* out of them! Make sure 1 of your items is going to be a hot seller even if your heart is not in it. For example at a holiday craft show, I am sure to sell 30 bars of kid soap w/ a stupid rubber reindeer in it while I may only sell 2 jars of fabulous whipped shea butter. Well, those stupid reinedeer soaps just made up for my entry fee into the craft show this year & will pay for next years show too!
That is how I do it anyway.
When I opened my business, there were so many expenses that I had never realized just how quickly it would all add up. I had to buy display shelves/fixtures, cash register, table for the cash register, table cloths, store decorations, shopping bags, advertising, store sign, utility deposits and then enough supplies and finished product to stock the store with. I soon realized just how much different stocking a store was than stocking a booth at a craft fair.smellitlikeitis said:I am getting funds... to spend on soap stuff.. and I am opening my business in October.. but when I looked at the supplies that I needed, the price added up High!..
I have bills to pay at home, as well as getting my car fixed.. but I really want to spend it on soap stuff...
