Shop Talk: The Green Giraffe

(Continued)

What are the advantages of doing business in this area?

I think word of mouth spreads a lot better, because it’s still a small area. It’s simple, back-to-basics.

What are the disadvantages?

There’s not a lot of people around here, as in the city, where there is constant (business) traffic.

What sets you apart from your competitors?

The biggest thing is the variety of things I take (for consignment). I can take antiques, also, because I am educated and have connections in antiques.

What advice would you give to someone trying to enter your field of work?

Definitely, you want to connect with another person in the business. You need to learn about things like storage and rotating inventory. Learn as much as you can.
