I make and sell a range of handmade soaps and bath products. They’re free from SLS and parabens and fully biodegradable and the vast majority are vegan friendly.
I would love to open a retail shop in York, not only to sell my own products but to showcase and sell other creators’ items. (I would do this on a space rental/commission basis.)
There seems a distinct turn away from supporting large businesses, towards supporting local businesses and craft creators and I want to encourage this.
York is an ideal place for an enterprise like this, not only is the local demographic a good target audience there is also the huge tourism market to be taken into account.
A retail location would also be an ideal base to continue my online business, with the added opportunity of diversifying the products available for sale as and when showcased products are added.
