Welcome to the Community. We at the community should be able to answer most of your questions.
My suggestion (most of the time) is to start by writing a Business Plan.
The business plan is like a road map from point A (starting your boutique) to finish (being successful).
There are many posts to help you with the plan.
Tell us more, review other posts and ask us more questions.
Good luck, LUCKIEST
Our factory overseas manufacturers women and children's apparel. I am not sure the type of styles you are looking to produce but I am in direct contact with China as our office is located stateside.
Please let me know if I can help out in any way.
I am in beganing stages of starting my own boutique. I have gone to a trade show but could not find a vendor that carried the style that i was looking for. I have come to realize that the best options for me to sell what i want is by having a manufacturer. I would like to find someone who can produce the clothes in the sytle that i would want. I work full time at a bank so it would be hard for me to travel overseas to find someone. I was wondering if anyone had any experities in this area and wouldn't mind helping. Any advise, contacts or anything would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
