Why this business was started
To be honest, I started this as a way to "get rich quick" without doing my proper research as to what I was getting myself into. Don't get me wrong, drop-shipping is a legitimate business model based on my experience, though this was not how I wanted to get started with drop-shipping.
The reason of selling this business
Due to the other commitments I have, there is no way I can afford to keep this store running by myself when I could be using my time better on the things I would much rather be doing and will be much happier doing so.
This made-for-you Shopify store is better in someone else's hand who can utilize it more than I will, and I won't ask for any percentage of commissions of any future profits made for it, I just want to sell it and move on (after a proper transition, of course).
What's involved in running this business
This is a mixed general and specialty drop-shipping store that was built from the ground up for me. You can choose to keep it mixed general and specialty, or make it a general or specialty store, so you can sell whatever you want to sell with this store.

How to grow this business
Continue focusing on seasonal and big-tent event products and after looking at analytics, make product selling decisions based on the analytics for what works and what doesn't.
Skills to have
Ideally, must have at least one other Shopify/drop-shipping store in order to somehow turn this one around to make it make profit again.
Or if you've been learning about drop-shipping and you're stuck on ideas for what store to start, this may be the right store for you to start with.
P.S. This store also has its own YouTube channel. We'll figure out how the transition will go. Though if you happen to have video making/editing skills, those skills will be very useful for the YouTube channel and anything else video related for the store.

Verified listing data
The revenue and traffic data that you see on each listing is pulled directly from its Shopify account. This means that the data has been verified. Exchange reviews and monitors listings for thorough and accurate information.
Secure messaging platform
You will be able to communicate with sellers via a secure messaging platform. After you log in and request information from a listing, sellers are notified and have the ability to respond. When you are ready, you can make an offer.
Encrypted payment capture
Exchange and Escrow.com have partnered together to provide you with safe transactions that have bank encryption, making sure that payment is securely captured. Escrow.com ensures that its users pass verification checks before transactions can proceed.
Take time to inspect the business
Once you submit payment to Escrow.com and the payment has been secured, the funds are held until you confirm that all assets received are as negotiated. You can use the inspection period to ask the seller any extra questions about the business.
Safe store transfer
When the transaction is finalized, the dedicated migration team at Exchange will begin the process of making you the new owner of the store. Buyers and sellers will be notified via an email from the Exchange team once store transfers have been completed.
