Business Story

Why this business was started

I've been a part of the Bay area festival scene and Burning Man culture since the late nineties so starting the business was simply about combining my passions to service and connect with my community. The iconic location at Haight Ashbury services a wide variety of clientele both local and international seeking to bring home tangible memories and funky fashion that epitomizes the west coast dance music scene.

The reason of selling this business

In the last few years my side hustle in producing livestream events at trade shows all over the US has kept me very occupied with more job opportunities and an extensive travel schedule. The business is completely debt free and providing decent cash flow but working in San Francisco is no longer compatible with my significant other.

What's involved in running this business

Staffing and training employees in sales and merchandising. Trendspotting and purchasing relevant seasonal fashion. Savvy sales and marketing thru social media, SEO and local outreach. General store upkeep, merchandising and operations.

This business was founded: over 5 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 10 hours per week

Other details about profit: We seldom run sales to clear out inventory so this has built up a backlog of older inventory. Although cycles do not move as quickly in the men's market enhanced management of the product sales cycle and dedicated monthly ad spend would certainly enhance overall profitability.

      Introductions to my European and Asian suppliers who keep me stocked with the latest fashion forward items my customers seek out. Most of these items will not appear in domestic supply chains as found at major trade shows like MAGIC so the inventory really sets itself apart from what can be found in a mall or Main Street USA.

    Seller‘s Advice

    How to grow this business

    Growing a presence on our existing social media channels and building a highly targeted sales funnel via SEO and CRO would greatly enhance the store's bottom line. While we have collected a valuable e-mail list over the years, we've done ZERO outbound marketing as seen in our analytics dashboard.

    Skills to have

    Savvy connection to youth fashion trends as it relates to music and alternative culture in the SF Bay area and beyond. Running email campaigns and social media promotion. These channels have been nearly untapped to date and represent a huge path to growth! Partnerships and alliances with complimentary businesses in other parts of the country that serve alternative subcultures would also grow the brand immensely.
