I actually have a HUGE etsy shop and over 4000 quality hand picked items since 1979 I am selling.. I tried Shopify but its too much for me I am not young and familiar with the social media or web design and profit well from my energy on Etsy so am in process of closing Shopify. I am willing to sell all inventory of thousands of amazing items from mid 1800s to couture 90s including amazing clothing and accessories, rare art and pottery, home decor and more. My existing listings total more than asking price and my inventory is insured for $350,000
Sale includes all racks ( 15-18) higher end racks, all inventory, photo backdrops and lighting and a few manniquins along with all inventory, etsy shop and followers ( near 2000 and 5 star rating with near 300 ratings and 4 yrs of sales) my facebook and shopify and web domain which is very valuable as for any shop name with hippie in it is not available.
I am asking $90,000 for all

Q & A
Why should someone buy this store?
Amazing home based income. I work min hours, apx 6 hours a week shooting and editing photos, 3 hours a week packaging and shipping, and 10 hours max sitting in front of my TV listing what I shot that week and replying to questions etc. I earn an average of $2900 in Dec and Jan of this year so far for 20 hours a week max. I do not put a lot into this as for my health is limiting and I have had to close shop for at least 2-4 months a year do to relocation or illness but still have earned near or over $22000 ( $2200 - $3000 a month average)
I have hand picked inventory for over 35 yrs and was a professional fashion model with pages in Vogue etc in the 80s and helped with the opening of the iconic Flip on Melrose vintage shop in the early 80s. I have enough quality and unique inventory that you will NEVER have to restock if you only want to sell and not bother with the hunting of vintage.
Its worth tens of thousands more than asking but my health is starting to get worse and as much as I love this shop I would like to take the funds and travel etc before I meet my maker.
How can the future owner improve the business?
Invest a bit more time and get a lot more return is my only suggestion. If you also can use a live model on many of the items that would show better if had movement or like jeans etc would probably help and of course if you can improve on photo skills and social media skills and branch out into things like this Shopify and Depop etc
The income is endless and the profit margin very high.
What work have you put into the store?
I have put over 5 yrs into the Etsy shop and this Shopify is a new venture that is beyond my ability. I have worked hard to develope a great following and tremendous feedback. I have invested over $150,000 into inventory and supplies in the past few years. All the hard work is finished now time to just reap the rewards.
About the seller
Created this store 4 months ago
Purchased this from my best friend and ex wife when she got sick. It was her passion and she has an eye for quality and bargins. I am now retired and her health has continued to decline. I depended on her for a lot on this shop and now I want to be able to help her have some quality time while she is able to do so. I have decided if I can sell this shop I am going to give her some traveling and stability and help her enjoy her life. She earned it.
