I was so thrilled for my very first shop run with Brynn last week. We had some mid-season orders to decrease off as well as a few new shops that we wished to inspect out very first hand. It makes such a significant difference seeing the shops in person vs. online. Jayne shop has been on our listing for a while now, so we were very pleased they just recently opened a place in the city! much simpler to decrease by Lincoln Park vs. a trip out to Highland Park or Lake Geneva.
Our very first stop was at Fixture in Roscoe Village. It was remarkable being able to see Fixture, because they have offered our bags because 2009. They are likewise one of the few stores which bring a big range of styles. They just recently started bring the new crossbody bag, the Jenne as well as have embraced suede.
Of program best when we walked in, we were greeted by Henry a wonderful however huge labradoodle. Fixture had such a warm as well as welcoming set up. The very first thing you saw when walking in was support for regional artists by selling their handcrafted Chicago pride gifts. As I made my method with the store there were great deals of things that caught my eye – From the lovely gold appeal pendants in the fashion jewelry section to the hand blown glass pumpkin designs in the house products section. Brynn’s bags were beautifully displayed on a helical fixture, that enabled clients to view all different styles of bags. walking to the back of the store I stumbled upon the bath, body as well as candle section. best away I found my preferred candle business that we utilized to bring at my college job, The SOi Company: Aqua de SOi Candle. So naturally, I had to stop as well as odor them all; The scents of the candles restored so numerous excellent memories! There was something for everybody here.
Since we were headed as much as Transistor in Andersonville, we chose to stop by Hazel in Ravenswood to inspect on stock as well as so I might get much more of a feel for the kinds of shops that work finest for us.
As soon as I walked into Hazel I found a few of our purses in the entrance way. I likewise discovered that this store had a great deal of product in it! walking with the store I discovered the purses in a few different places, as well as mixed in with others. I felt as our purses stood out as well as made left an impression. As I continued walking there was a fun screen in a glass situation of different as well as fascinating jewelry. a few of the featured fashion jewelry was even from artist from around the world. I truly delighted in taking time to observe exactly how the store design was designed. The area was extremely open as well as whatever was accessible. Hazel gift had a range of gifts including accessories, infant gifts, housewares as well as greeting cards as well as wrapping paper. I liked seeing other regional products such as Rifle Paper Co. as well as Paper source being offered here. I have to state my preferred part was the greeting card section in the middle of the store as well as the lovely gift wrap in the back of the store.
Each shop has their own personal vibe as well as innovative store plans, however it certainly provided me a much better comprehending of what our suitable shop looks like. While observing these stores I realized even though they are extremely different, they both bring some products from a few of the exact same companies. I utilized this to my advantage when searching for new prospective shops which will definitely assist make the research study element of it easier.
Our last stop was Jayne boutique. The place is ideal because one of our most significant selling shops (that was found less than a mile up the road) closed recently, so we were searching for a new partner in the area. Right when we walked in, I felt we would be a excellent in shape for this store as they believe in “an timeless buying experience of color, quality, function as well as style.”
I believe the high-end boho style of our bags complement their offerings well. We were able to speak with one of the managers as well as decrease off some postcards for the buyer. I comprehend in some cases it takes months or even years to get into a new store, however ideally we made a excellent impression! Fingers crossed as well as here’s to hoping!
From working here, I already have a great comprehending of the other side of merchandising as well as buying. I have been focusing on getting interest from shops that may be thinking about bring our leather bags.
