Anyway, I am opening a store within the next week or two. It's called Althaea Soaps and Herbals, and I'll offer handmade soaps, emulsifying scrubs, massage oils, lip balms, customized lotions and creams, and will have a make-your-own-fragrance center. I'll also have framed photographic art on the walls for sale. The emphasis is on the natural, the herbal mostly. I'm looking to avoid being too "girly", too "sanitized scientific" and too "burlap dress rustic". Somewhere in the middle. :)
The reason why I'm posting is to see if anyone might be interested in working out a consignment agreement with me, to place products in the shop. I'd like to talk to you if you're interested. Photos of the storefront-in-progress are in my journal (melanie) if you want to take a look at the format of the place. It's located at 504 West Oakland Avenue in Johnson City, Tennessee. We're the largest city in the region, and the store is located on a small piece of road that joins the two most commercially busy streets in the city. Very good location, nonstop traffic flowing past day and night.
Please contact me at althaea at althaea.biz if you'd like to discuss the possibility of setting up a consignment display in the store. Thanks.
