Starting A Hat Business For Church Ladies
Posted by Anonymous on

I would like to sell beautiful hats and purses from my
home to ladies in my city and other cities close by.
We have a need for this type of a hat boutique in our area. I notice many women here, especially women of color wear hats all the time here. Such as to church, weddings, funerals, special event's, etc.. I often hear
women and men both mention they have to travel to
a larger city at least 150-200 miles away to purchase
these items, or order them from a magazine. I have
traveled to the larger cities where there are many of
these stores. My question is how do I get started, and find the web sites to order from.Thanks Dee B.

You must be in the middle of nowhere! 150 miles is a long way to travel for headware!
One option would be to talk with a company that would like to reach these people. I did a simple google search and found
You may be able to have them provide you order forms or samples so you can sell from home. Just don't want to see you go in debt for inventory.
