Glam Finish is a wedding decoration business that I started in May 2016. The local community has been extremely supportive and my business is growing nicely with an awards nomination last month and lots of happy customers.
I have always been very creative and artistic and my business is now my main passion in life. I meet with many couples who are disheartened by the lack of quality in the wedding industry and the sheer lack of customer service. These are things that I have put at the forefront of my business.
My project is to expand on the services that I am providing to the local area. I am a small start up and have funded all of my stock, advertising and storage facilities with my own money, however I need a cash injection now, so I can begin to provide an additonal crockery and glassware hire service. I am hoping to raise £3,000.00 which will be spent on new stock items that will provide the best options for my customers.
I have done my research covering a vast area outside of Shropshire when looking for suppliers of unique crockery and glassware, and I have found there to be very little in the way of choice. I am planning my own wedding for January 2017 and have had to book crockery and glassware from London and drive to collect this, as there were no local options. I have also been asked by many customers if I know of any companies locally that provide the same sorts of stock and have been unable to help them.
The crowd funds will help immensely in my achieving the expansion, as I need to be able to hold stock of each item in quantities of 100 or more, which will mean an increase in storage facilities and also much greater costs to buy the stock then I have ever had to spend.
I am confident that I can corner the market for crockery and glassware hire locally and this will be a great benefit to local couples planning their big days and will compliment my current services perfectly.
I would be so grateful for any help and support.
