I've been kicking around the idea for the past 2-3 years of having a store front in a tourist town instead just selling online, craft shows and through Facebook. Places like Branson, MO, Eureka Springs, AR, , Hot Springs, AR, Gatlinburg, TN, Nashville, TN, etc.
I know there are extra cost in doing this like overhead costs, taxes, bills (rent, utilities, etc.). What are your thoughts, the good, the bad and the ugly? Has anyone done this?
Guitar shops,flea markets or consignment shops you have to be there play them when customers come in,promote them of there easy play ability and offer some lessons.when a person walks in to buy or drool over $2500.00 Las Paul you have to catch their attention convincing them yours sounds and looks good. maybe open your own guitar shop, Getting near a Interstate beings how you live in a rural area.
