American made men's retail brand. Arcane is a combination of in-house designs and hand crafted goods, curated men's classics (Red Wing Heritage and Chippewa Boots, Woolrich, etc), and in-house designs that are manufactured in small limited edition batches here in USA. Everything is American made, and everything is focused on timeless designs and an aesthetic that blends perfectly for year-round reliability. The business has grown by over 250% each year since 2014, and has been strategized for scalability. With the right capital investment, Arcane is ready to break into retailer partnerships and go from a cult-classic to a house-hold name.

We are currently sourcing products at MoQ rates (minimum order quantity), meaning that if investment was made into larger quantities of inventory, margins would significantly improve.

We have chosen a direct to consumer organic growth process, with no spend in advertising. There is a great potential to invest in online marketing efforts (Search, Display, Remarketing, and Paid Social strategies) to gain traffic and exposure outside of our SEO positioned content and subscriber.
(ie. Mailchimp, apps)
We have a large quantity of apparel and open box boots inventory on hand, as well as very great relationships with our manufacturers that will allow for speed of growth and increased margins. All inventory is documented and will be transferred with the sale of the business. Our core products, the boots, are drop shipped by our suppliers and can be purchased as single units each time a customer buys from Arcane.

Q & A
Why should someone buy this store?
Arcane is a growing business with trusted quality and loyal customers. The focus of the business lies in American made essentials, apparel, and accessories, with a strong emphasis on heritage goods. Every element of design and presentation is centered around a common, timeless aesthetic.
Arcane brought in $92k in gross sales during 2017, and after returns and refunds, net revenue was $73k (including our eBay revenue).
How can the future owner improve the business?
Purchasing larger quantities of inventory will greatly improve margin. We don't have the capital right now to properly expand or advertise - there is huge opportunity to grow the business.
What work have you put into the store?
Arcane is a blend of my own designs, which represent a much smaller percentage of business revenue that the 3rd party brands that we carry (Chippewa and Red Wing boots), my own photography, site design, social media management, growth of our audience and supporters, and in some cases, the actual creation of some of the product. The past year's growth has outpaced my ability to continue running the business alone, and I have been focusing on a shift into scalable product lines that can be continued by a new investor seamlessly.
