          Welcome to the community. Your jewelry is beautiful, and your site seems well organized. Are you successful in selling your handcrafted items online? What makes you want to start a brick and mortar business?  I would encourage you to build a business plan to outline your goals and options, and also to speak with an attorney and an accountant to help decide whether it's the right time to invest in a kiosk to sell your items.
