Name Needed For Southern,upcycling,vinyl Business

Posted by dill622 on 250 Points
Hi, I am in desperate need for help to start my business! The concept of the business is a mix of new and old. Upcycled, repurposed furniture and other knick-nacs + Decorative items using Cricut and Vinyl. I am having a hard time coming up with a name. I guess the hardest thing is that I am a guy and most of the name you would think of are girly. I also live in Southern Virginia, so I am hoping to include a southern twang to the name. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, with Tag lines too! One name that I had thought of was Uniquely Y'alls and Vintage Vinyl. Thanks y'all!!

    Upcycle, Uptown, Downtown! Everything you want to prettify your home.

    Unique Upcycle, Downtown! Cricut and Vinyl for your home.

    BTW, if your ideas sound too girly, that may be a help to you as your best customers may be women. Most of them don't mind buying from a guy!

    Many of them prefer it ...especially if he is really nice.

    Tell us about your primary target audience. Who are these folks? What's important to them? How do they decide where to buy furniture? Are they already familiar with the kinds of furniture you sell, or do you also have a missionary/educational sale to make? What criteria do they use when deciding what to purchase?

    It's every bit as important to understand your target audience as it is to understand your product -- especially when coming up with a name. Do you have a marketing plan for your business? If not, that's the place to start. If so, perhaps you can share the information about your target audience with us. How is your target audience going to know you exist? How will they find you?

    Thanks everyone for your responses! So far I am not seeing on that hits me. In April, I will be doing a craft show for a Womens Club in my home town. So I guess right now my primary target is women. Some are familiar with the work that I do! Facebook has been a big help in showing the pieces that I have done. I want to make a Facebook page, just for my business, but I cant come up with the perfect name. At this point, Facebook is going to be how I market my business. Sharing my page on others walls and such. Plus, my first craft show will help my name get out there! Thanks again!!!
