I make custom leather guitar straps as Heavy Leather NYC in Brooklyn, NY. I need help funding a road trip selling to music stores around the U.S.A.
I am the founder of HEAVY LEATHER NYC, maker of custom leather guitar straps hand crafted in my shop in Brooklyn.
My business is growing rapidly and I am looking to push it even further. I currently sell online on my website and eBay, and in retail stores in NYC, Los Angeles, Chicago, Nashville and Austin. I just got back from a road trip down south for a music industry trade show and to sell my product to the stores. While I am on the road selling straps my production work is at a stand-still. I recently hired an assistant who will help me in the future while I am away from the leather, but for now If I am not in the shop I am not making money. I need help funding my next trip to sell to more stores down south (specifically Austin-San Antonio-Dallas Texas). This past trip just was not long enough and there is so much more work to be done!
Thank you SO much for your contributions!!!!!!!! Thanks for supporting my business, YOUR interest in my work inspires and motivates me!!!!!!
