Trial Month

September 27th, 2012 at 12:13 pm

I am a skating mom (not a soccer mom or a football mom) and spend a good bit of time at the ice rink. Our rink is somewhat out of date and almost closed when the property was sold and slated for new housing about 5 years ago. Fortunately the economic slow down changed the housing development plans and the rink became non-profit. It is now run by a very dedicated group of adults. We parents also help with fundraising and all manner of events.

So it is well loved ice facility and seems to be attracting more families with time!

Inside the rink is a pro shop. The shop is owned separately (leased to the rink) and always has had a small stock of items for figure skaters and hockey players. But recently a new owner took over, a younger guy who loves hockey.

And he really beefed up the place! Take a LOOK

So being the small biz on the look out for opportunity that I am....

I took him a sample pair of my hand beaded gloves and asked if he would be interested in wholesale!

The answer was 'Sure!' but let's give it a month trial to start.

Now EXCLUSIVELY at Goal Line Sports! Gloves for the skater (or dog walker or playground teacher or...)





KEEP THOSE (beaded) FINGERS CROSSED!

    Wow, that's great! Good for you for approaching him. An excellent opportunity for Christmas Specials! How about a few with Christmas themes? Then Valentines day - I love the ones with the hearts.

    Oh, another idea would be to have some with skates or hockey sticks on them.

    You can support him as well by mentioning that your products are available at his store and therefore boost his business as well.

    Your gloves have been my favorite of all your crafts you have shown us. Smile Good luck with sales in the rink shop.

    I SOOOO hope I am carried through December because they are so suitable for little gifts. Yes, I have Christmas themes, usually bring those to my holiday fairs. Ah well, at least I try!! And I love to hear feedback which things people notice and why. Of course, I promise only to follow my muse!

    I love the white ones with the pink hearts!

    That is a great idea and I hope it leads to sales for you! Also, families that can afford skating/hockey for their kids usually have the insurance of some discretionary income. Good luck!
