Hey guys so, i was thinking of opening up a retail store and i didn't want to sell the usual billabong,fox, volcom, quicksilver,etc. I really wanted to sell new independent clothes from companies that are just getting started. Any of you guys know of any companies in the country that are new and want to get there stuff out there?

As much as you don't want to carry the big companies they have the marketing dollars in these tough times to spend in mags,billboards,internet, and the list goes on..so with that being said you need to carry a lott of smaller companies to make up for the loss of the bigger ones..Another important issue is that smaller companies equalls smaller quanities that get picked through very quickly..Any help let me know i've been in the industry for quite some time now and might be able to help..
Yeah that is a great point, i mean of course carrying name brand companies is a must because people tend to buy what they know and like, although as you said independent is much cheaper which in this economy helps everyone
right now i am just tossing around ideas for the shop trying to see if its a good idea right now or not and what other peoples opinions are
For big names you also need big credit accounts. Good idea but in this kind economy I wouldn't bite off more than you chew.
