Asking price: 20,000
What is for sale:
- Two online retail businesses: an ethical gift shop and a children's shop
- One Ebay store
- Large volume of stock which includes gifts, home accessories, clothing, incense, artifacts, musical instruments, jewellery, games, toys and posters
- An integrated system that enables you to manage your online sales and inventory on Amazon and Ebay and do bulk uploads, making it easy to sell on multiple platforms
- Packaging equipment and supplies
- Warehouse shelving if required
- Contacts with British & Asian suppliers to develop and grow the business.
Reason for sale: The business is no longer trading as we now run another full-time business and are unable to continue running the online retail businesses. The asking price has been kept low because we are looking for a quick sale due to our other commitments.
When the business was up and running, it had two active websites (that are both still live), two Amazon stores and two Ebay stores. The company also traded at markets, festivals, educational conferences, trade shows and school fairs. It provided a primary source of income from 2007 to 2016.
The business has great potential and would suit an individual or couple who are looking for a new way of life. Some overseas travel to India, Bali or Thailand may be required to obtain new stock. One of the websites sells fairly traded handcrafted home accessories, ornaments, musical instruments, clothing, jewellery, bags, purses, etc. The second website sells books, toys, games, posters and arts and crafts equipment for children.
Day-to-day management: The business involves ensuring that your inventory listings are up-to-date, responding to customer enquiries, listing new products, processing and packing orders and ensuring a high quality of service to customers. The business has a huge potential for growth under the right management. The Linnworks system that we use makes selling online incredibly easy and functional because the information is live and updated automatically. We have done a lot of the **** work for you by establishing an effective sales and order management system. You will need a large space for storage, possibly an attic, large garage or you may have to rent a warehouse, which is what we currently have. You can also sell at markets, festivals and events, providing an additional income to the online sales. Due to the volume of stock, it may also be possible to sell some of the stock to gift shops and music shops on a wholesale basis.
Location: The business is based in East Sus***. However, you can be based anywhere in the UK!
