    Hey guys, it's me again. I know, I know, I ask way too many questions. I'm not sure if this is the place or the forum to ask, but I was wondering if anyone had any advice to me. A potential client of mine has a successful online store and is now looking to branch out and to get their products in stores. I was wondering, where should I start?? Should I seek out distributors and fashion buyers? If so, where do I start? Or should I just have them showcase their brand at events? If someone could help, I'd love it. If not, I'm sorry for annoying you guys :)

    Thanks

    I think it depends... For fashion, you may be able to walk into small shops, show em the product w/ a nice presentation, throw em a box full on consignment or sell them "X" amount of whatever. For large retail/dept. stores you may have to show how much is selling and hit trade shows. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
