Grey Fox Mercantile: Opening March 2019!
After running Grey Fox Felting, an e-commerce home-based business specializing in felting kits, supplies, and original works of art for four years, we've decided to expand our business into Grey Fox Mercantile, our first brick and mortar storefront!
We've located a perfect place, signed the lease and started working on the 700 square feet that will become a retail and workshop space just for you. In this space, you'll be able to browse our full in-house line of felting kits and original felted animal sculptures, the beautiful selection of felting wool in virtually every color imaginable that you've come to know through our online presence, as well as a curated selection of handmade goods by artisans you'll love.
You will have the opportunity to be a part of free craft nights for the community, and you will be able to take workshops and celebrate fiber arts-based birthday and special occasion parties for guests of all ages.
We're launching this funding campaign to ask for your help in transforming our space to fit these needs and make it a truly unique place to learn about fiber arts and find beautiful artisan goods.
Risks and challenges
The store will allow us to expand what has been a home-studio based e-commerce business into a brick and mortar storefront and workshop center. Our main challenge will be continuing to smoothly run the e-commerce side of our business while operating a storefront and allowing our business to have a physical presence in our community. We plan to host craft nights and workshops, and support other artisans by selling their wares, and we hope we will be able to give all aspects of our business the attention it will need to thrive in our community.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
