How can the future owner improve the business?
You can create social media campaigns and challenges that will grow your audience of raving fans faster than in any other niche. I had a several buys on day one of the store from only one promotional post with just hashtag no advertising! This niche has low competition and high profitability. I just don't have time to invest into growing the social media following and nurturing the community.
What work have you put into the store?
I have imported excellent selection of goods from Ali Express from reliable suppliers (you'll get the names of the suppliers as well after the purchase), created social media pages and invested money into acquiring followers. Facebook page, for instance, has 7161 followers at the moment of typing this.

What sort of marketing do you do to promote the store?
Marketing professional working in As Seen On TV industry. I'm involved in creating commercials for TV and social media campaigns for my company's products. Nibster Pens is a passion project I created recently and was planning on growing it but I got really busy at work and couldn't pay any attention to it. So I'm hoping someone will take it from here and grow it.
