General description

Amazing opportunity to own a well designed online bedding business designed and built by two Stanford grads. This easily relocatable e-commerce business has huge opportunity for growth in a new and quickly growing online sector. With great margins and a private label product line that is 100% Fair Trade (Fair Trade USA) + Organic Certified (GOTS) you'll have the opportunity to make a tremendous positive change in the world. This business is completely set up and ready to go with a beautifully built out website (on Shopify platform), inventory, large amount of marketing materials and photos, and social media accounts. This is an amazing opportunity for someone who is great at online marketing and sales.

The sale of the business includes :
- 100% Fair Trade + Organic certified bedding inventory for which we paid $63,000 and has a retail value of approximately $296,000
- email list with 1,000+ subscribers
- product designs and specs
- factory contacts
- custom branded shipping boxes
- website, domain, social media accounts
- trademark IP
- marketing photos and content All analytics and any background on any other

We want to support a successful transition of this business.

We’re selling the business because we currently have another business, flip & tumble, and an opportunity for significant growth has arisen there that we need to put our time to. Our resources, both financial and in terms of manpower are limited, and we don’t feel that we can effectively take advantage of both businesses. We also recognize that the success and growth of California Cotton will hinge on having an expertise in marketing, an area that is not our strength. The business is operationally fully setup and ready to go for someone who is excited and knowledgeable about driving sales and growth online.

Q & A

Why should someone buy this store?

This store is ready to go and has tremendous potential. The bedding space has just started to get off the ground with companies such as Brooklinen and Parachute hitting the market in the recent years. We believe there’s a lot more space in the online bedding market, and California Cotton is well poised to take advantage with a focused niche of modern bedding made responsibly.

How can the future owner improve the business?

This business really just needs someone with expertise in marketing to get the product exposed. It’s a great opportunity for someone excited about social media, content creation, marketing and advertising. The right buyer will be able to implement marketing strategies, evaluate success, and make changes to drive awareness and sales.

What work have you put into the store?

We’ve put in significant resources to set this store up for success. We’ve invested a significant amount of time developing the designs and finding the right partner to produce the product. As a result we’ve been able to produce an exceptionally high quality product. We’ve also designed and built out the website so that operationally this business is ready to go. In terms of content, we’ve also put together a large base of bedding photos so that you can hit the ground running with marketing.
