In June 2015, we were made redundant. The thought of been unemployed filled me with dread. After searching the internet for various jobs, I soon realised it was not going to be easy and my age was against me.
My Husband and I got our heads together and came up with a drop ship business.(for thoses who do not know what a dropship business is, you list products on website, amazon ect .. customer buys from your website, you buy from supplier, they ship to your customer.)
Inspired designer furinture seemed to be a good bet. York Furniture Company was born.
We started this business from scratch over 18 months ago, and have grown it enough to make a good living.
Due to the new furniture laws that was final in April 2017 our business is having to close.
A change to UK copyright law means we can no longer sell inspired furniture. The goverment brought forward the EU law from 2020 to April 2017 and was signed of the week before brexit. This part of the furniture industry is in meatdown. We are now in turmoil!
Our business is about to close, due to ministers that signed this new legislation and now have walked away leving a complete car crash behind them. This has broke my heart and will put many people out of work.
We are very entrepreneurial and will not be beaten.
We now need a new venture that is not going to cost the earth to set up, we have decided to do ladies fashion as I am very passionate about creating the perfect style and appearance for real woman.
We have lots of ideas on how to drive traffic and business to our website, but once again lack of funds proves difficult to execute them.To keep things simple we will stucture three price points £19.00- £22.00 on top of this I aim to sell 50s stlye dresses that are now becoming very fashionble like all things mid century. price point £40.00
We thought about Drop shipping but soon relised it would not be realistic as wholesalers only sell in quantities of either 6 or 8 also have a minimum order.
We have opened a facebook page to see the response and without any advertising we have had lots of interest and request regarding our new website ( which is now in process)
We are now looking for investors to help set up our new venture.
The investment will go towards buying stock, new computer, software, extensions or plugins for website that may be needed. Advertising, packaging ect..
We have various rewards available if none of these suit your requirements, please feel free to use them as gives or for charity raffels etc...
Any donation will be very much appreciated
