Opening and recruiting: Dear creative people, My name is Yolanda de Wilde Gijzemijter and I am the owner of La Yola concept store in Vélez-Malaga, which will open its doors within a few weeks. This type of store is becoming increasingly well known in northern Europe and there are already a number of them in northern Spain.
In the store I sell gorgeous (handmade) original products from (small) entrepreneurs/webshops/illustrators who would like to sell their products in a physical store. Think of baby and children’s clothing, trendy modern jewelry, (hand) bags, home accessories, lamps, stationary, decoration, pillows, skin care products etcetera.
The concept of the store is actually quite simple. You can rent sales space for a monthly fee. These sales areas are for example a shelf in a closet, a sideboard, display case, table, wall rack and so on, there are many possibilities. The space and price will be discussed. As we present your products attractively, promote them (online) and wrap them up nicely if desired, La Yola asks 10% commission on the sold items. Once a month we pay you the proceeds of the products sold. And you pay us the rent for the agreed space every month. That’s it!
I am actively present on social media and will also promote your brand. I use a real-time sales / cash register system so you can keep track of your own sales.
There are still spaces available, so if you would like to offer your products in a real shop and get extra promotion, then I would very much like to get in touch with you! Please send me some pictures of your products, a description of them and some information about yourself to yodewilde@gmail.com or contact me via WhatsApp (+34)600 79 43 25. And feel free to ask all your questions!
Besides, I am Dutch and also speak Spanish, English and German.
