Restless Roots - New Shop in Plattsburgh
Restless Roots, just north of the Post Office in downtown Plattsburgh on Miller Street, opened up a few weeks/months ago. Their sandwich board (artistic), open door and "Fine Arts and Crafts" on the window drew me in. Most of their business comes from the people who drive into town to go to the post office.
They are looking for more artisans and artists. Already there are pieces from the furniture maker, Jon Whallonsburg, from Jay; Mark Stowe's jewelry; the owner's clothing and jewelry lines; Jackie Sabourin's pottery and figure drawings by the owner's mother. And others. It's a mix of space rental and consignment (very reasonable rates). I have misplaced their business card but will post their contact info. as soon as I have it. The owner, Jessica, is developing a product sales website for the shop as well.
Yes, keep your overhead to a minimum, select a storefront in a large community near a post office with a lot of on-street parking and commit to regular easy-to-remember hours and your bills will be paid! My compliments to Jessica, the owner, and Alicia, Plattsburgh SBDC staff, who helped in designing the business approach.
