Pick a location and a building
You will have to first decide what you would like to do. Once you have decided, on for example, setting up a small eating place with a small corner to sell creative gifts, you have to start looking for a place to set up your shop. You can even convert a part of your house as the shop or if you want to keep away from home, you can rent out a small building away from home. Once this is done, you will have to purchase the necessary equipment and the furniture.
You can also start advertising your shop even before you officially open your doors to the public. You can create the hype and the curiosity amongst your potential customers. For example, you can put up mesh signs outside your new shop advertising the soon to be set up shop.
Not only will mesh signs draw the attention of the public, it will also not block out the light coming into your shop. Thus, your shop will not be dark. You can also effectively use social media to reach a lot of potential customers and to create a hype with regards to your shop.
Make the first batch of goodies
Next, you will have to start setting up the shop. You have to design your shop in an attractive manner. You can paint the walls in soft hues, have comfortable and dainty furniture as well as put up witty saying and lovely pictures to decorate your walls. You can also have a bookshelf with some good books so that your customers can flip through a book while enjoying your yummy treats. You will also have to start making the first batch of treats as well as make your creative gifts. Make sure that you present them in an attractive and neat manner. Finally you will be ready to thrown open the doors to the public.
