At the meet up, Tiffany shared some of her tips for selling retail. She has had a retail shop for 9 years, and she's clearly savvy about the psychology and nitty gritty of selling. She encouraged those of us who are new to in-person sales to "fake it 'til you make it," and her positive attitude was contagious. Tiffany spoke at length with us about how opening her own shop was the realization of her dream, and she wants to help support other local indie folks with following their own dreams. Having a pop-up shop for a few days can be a first step on that path for many people. By the end of our meeting, we were talking excitedly about what sorts of events we might host in her cozy space right off the main street in Mountain View.
Big thanks to Trish of Poppy Peach for introducing the group to Tiffany! Her persistence made this meet up possible.
