There are a zillion reasons why a resale shopkeeper needs to go shopping (tell ’em Kate told you to.)

First of all, to gain inspiration. You can Learn-a-Lot (which is why I use that tag here on the blog.)

Second, to find things your shop needs. (I’ve made you a shopping list.)

And right about now, you especially need to patronize your local thrift and resale shops for things that YOUR customers will need soon. (Like this: )

Buy wedding dresses and dye them black. Witch, Morticia, Frankenstein’s bride, the possibilities are endless. And who wouldn’t love to wear a bridal gown for one night?

Suggestions re Breast Cancer Awareness Month:

See if you can schedule the mobile mammogram unit in your parking lot. There may be a lot of demand that month, though, so be prepared for some sort of Plan B to benefit your clientele and the less-fortunate in your community.

Bling your Bra is fun, but you need to start working on it now. You can award a prize by getting your customers to vote on their favorites, charging $1 a vote to go to your choice of cancer charity. The winner(s) get shop gift certificates. Google for how others have organized their events fr some great ideas you can adapt.
