I Need Advice On How To Start Selling Clothes And Shoes Like Boutiques by lissom: 2:01am On Apr 28, 2008
i need advice on how to start a boutique.precisely,advice on where to buy the clothes and shoes from.Like maybe somewhere in lagos or in togo or ghana or cotonou or maybe outside africa or something.am not looking to start big time,am just looking to give it a try with about 100,000 naira for the clothes and shoes only because i am not planning on starting with a shop.I would sell from home and if everything turns out very well i could move in to a shop.
The fact that i said give it a try doesnt mean i have money to waste,its just something i have always wanted to do and i am ready to give up 100,000 to test run it.
I would appreciate if you dont spend much time advicing me on the factors to consider,what i am interested in right now is the source,where exactly,not ideas,the exact place i can get it,if possible,contact information.(wholesale source,the place where all them boutiques in lagos and ibadan and other places get their goods from)
i would honestly appreciate the kind of replies i asked for
thank you nairalanders.

Its a good idea and i m happy ur gonna test the waters with only 100k a friend started it with a little less than that went to togo and almost ran mad. Border wahala was too much for him worst all he didnt go with request so the clothes he bought was difficult to sell, then!, those who bought, were stubborn to pay him it was a mikky mouse story of come today, come tomorrow, at the end he was paid in a wicked manner of bits and pieces. Start by finding out wht your friends and neighbours would like, do they have kids, if they do buy enticing clothes that would befit the kids but make sure ur friend and neighbours are working class people. Above all female wares sells faster better. Cos a man wouldnt mind to deprive himself in order to answer request of his wife or girl friend so he can steal some sex from her at night fall.

Poster to reply you

I know that a lot of boutique owners in Lagos source their wares from wholesalers based in Idumota, Balogun and Apongbo markets.

If you are interested in the business like you say I'll advice you to visit these markets and conduct your own research.

I am happy for you because you are ready to give it a trier but I will advice you to do more research on your target (customer) dnt just listen to what they tell u they want , ofcourse you should know they will mention good designers from USA , UK etc but how many of them wear it or can afford it ? So you wouldn't end up using your money to buy and they fail to pick it due to high price.....the market is so saturated with diff quality and diff prices , you will even get copied product coming from USA and UK so you need to be careful , and I bet with you , you will always learn something everyday in this business , you will even be surprise where some pple get their stock from because they will even sell lower than your cost price.....I wudnt elaborate on that , so knowing your target and how much they can afford on a quality shirt , shoe etc is very important. Above all you are the no1 factor in this business work on yourself , create target for yourself, learn to make new friends , be customer friendly,don't give up on your customer easily , study them and give good compliment abt what they are putting on let them know you are in the business and you know when you see good fashion ......this really work for me on my female client , they buy well but the ugly part of it is when they owe me , with joke , beg and little quarrel is how I get paid and I tend to still apologize for getting my money the way I did and send new month messages , prayers etc to them. I wish you best of luck brov
