As you explore the possibilities of this adventure here are some things it might be helpful for you to consider:
Know your product
We are very excited to be able to offer space to local artists and crafters! As you consider joining our Clarks Summit community of vendors, we ask that you have a specific product in mind. As creatives, we often have several things going on at once. That's just how we are! But, it is extremely beneficial for you and for the gift shop if you know what you want to sell and work to make it the best it can be.
Are you able and available to commit to the time you need to make your product? Are you financially able to make any financial investments required? Are you willing and able to make special orders for customers? Are you able to commit time to regularly working on your space - restocking and rotating stock?
Know your customer
Or perhaps more accurately, be willing to get to know your customer. Can you be flexible with your product? Can you pay attention to what your customers are buying and be willing to adjust your work as needed? There is an element of compromise when you sell your home decor or handmade product to the public. If you want to make money, you need to be able to recognize what your customers are interested in buying and possibly be willing to relinquish some of your artistic passion to achieve what appeals to them the most. Not gonna lie - that's not always easy.
