wholesale AND retail - one roof
Posted by Heidi Leugers on March 07, 2002 at 12:59:19:
In the next few months I will be relocating to Asheville, NC. The pricing of commercial space there is such that it is possible to sell retail (with a street level window) out of what would also be my work/studio space for wholesale production, delivery, and new product development . This combined retail/wholesale concept isn't new, of course, and lots of artists do it in different locations around the country. I am firmly committed to wholesale - but think that this might be an opportunity I should not rule out - the downtown area is experiencing a dynamic revival and developing Asheville's identity as an arts destination beyond its identity with Biltmore. I would welcome comments and experiences from anyone who has or is doing both wholesale and retail under one roof, especially devils advocates!
Thank you in advance.
