Hello out there, I am trying to get my carved wood jewelry(incl.
silver, acrylic)buisness, off the ground.I have been carving nyc for
20 years and have the ability to greatly produce. I sell to a gallery
in san.fran. with excellent results. African american women and
upscale uniqely stylish women around nyc love it also. I wouldn’t be
able to rate a loan, but I have heard from professional people that
grants are a very possible thing. I was told to try the SBA(small
buisness…) in my area. I basically need it to get my shop out of my
house(rent) and to afford some wholesale shows. Of course I could use
a few more production items.
Have any of you been so skillful as to get a grant? My acct.(guy who
does my taxes) says 25,000 should be no problem. Is the sba the place
to try, gov. artist grant? Anything helpful would be appreciated,
And lastly, in my quest for unique upscale boutiques and highend
craft stores that might like exquisitely carved wood jewelry/with
silver/ bronze/copper accents,I beg anyone’s indulgence or
insight.(cities or resorts?,L.A.,DC, out west,Atlanta,Fla.,Tx.,Wash.,
I have as many pictures as needed to show my work, and please don’t
hesitate to contact offline.
thank you then,
