Dress Patch is an online shop dedicated to selling quality and affordable children's formal wear. I started Dress Patch as a stay-at-home mother and it was a wonderful experience to create a store and make my dream of entrepreneurship a reality. Through personalized photo shoots and connecting with fantastic vendors, the site came together beautifully. Now, I am ready to return to work, and need to provide my business with the opportunity to truly soar by handing over the keys to someone who has the time and attention and desire needed to make it succeed.

The advertising costs should be increased. Facebook advertising has brought in the most online business, and it has always reflected an increase in advertising.
(ie. Adwords, Facebook ads, etc.)
Much of the inventory I have has been used as samples for house parties and such.
This store would be a great addition to someone who already has a brick and mortar store but wants to add an online presence. The site is easy to navigate and has been tested by a number of customers, including positive reviews on previous purchases. Someone buying this store would get aan appealing and well functioning online store that’s turn key.
With both an Instagram following and Facebook following, Dress Patch is becoming widely known. The company has sold dresses both online and through cash and carry events. It's greatest mission is to make shopping easy and accessible for busy parents.
How can the future owner improve the business?
Dress Patch needs someone who is connected within a younger market. For example, a mother involved in a mother's group or someone who is connected to a dance school or something of the sort would be able to grow this business organically. It would also be beneficial to begin sending outfits to popular instagram personalities who can help the brand grow.
What work have you put into the store?
Aside from providing the personalized images on the store website and configuring the Google settings, creating Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest accounts, a potential buyer is purchasing a store that has a great reputation with its vendors. The store has a committed following on both Instagram and Facebook. It is known within the Wedding Expo community in Massachusetts. I've begun a very successful process of marketing the business and it's definitely becoming known in a wider circle.
