HOW TO CREATE a GALLERY with cafe, musicians, showcasing 50 artisans, importers, exporters, candy and cookie makers, utilize your whole community and use the INTERNET to do it!
PICTURE YOURSELF running the biggest, most famous COMMUNAL ART GALLERY in your town, a place that has rooms full of artisans, galleries, exhibitions, great food, music and talented traders/ importers that you located using the fabulous resource CRAIGS LIST.
Imagine a raucous, happy place with live Mariachi musicians and a fantastic ethnic cafe. Feature doing it with the PROPERTY's rent or house payment split between the 50 artisans who show their work, collectibles there. How can you lose? The answer is, you cannot! And if you're smart, they're paying the rent and you end up owning this old mansion!
I first saw this business in Mexico City in the antique SAN ANGEL the posh, very antique, southern side of the city, near COYOACAN, two incredibly lush zones where FRIDA KAHLO and DIEGO RIVERA once lived. Some enterprising guy found an old hacienda, bigger than Frida and Diego's simple Mexican home, I'd gauge from memory, it had ten big, high ceiling rooms downstairs and ten large bedrooms upstairs. This savvy guy turned it into an artisan's commune and it's been up and running for forty years, I think.
Every fab, inspired, zany, wacked out artist in Mexico City began to show their handmade jewels, clothes, decor, furniture and made their retail 'chops' there. The place was called (IS CALLED!) BAZAAR SABADO as it was open Saturdays, later Sundays also. But yours could be open seven days a week if you put small job merchandise under glass in locked cabinets in main room and had twenty rooms as these people did.
Call your communal art shop BAZAAR FOLKLORICO or PRIMITIVE LIMITED, or VASCO de GAMA shops. Do it with your group being equal partners in the profits, while each artist gets the client visitors to keep all the receipts from sale of his art. Find 50 artists to share rent on an Artisanry Shop/gallery. Find a big old house zoned for biz district. Several artists share space in each room.
This can be a huge, famous Tourist attraction week-ends. Have musicians liven the shopping up for the tourists. Mariachis would be the ideal! Or Mayan Marimba bands, or Cuban Fusion, Hindu sarangi music, Ravi Shankar type bands. Different ethnic musicians is the concept as this is a PANTHEISTIC kind of FOLKORE joint. You pay the musicos a minimum amt to show up and they can hand out their cards, get hired for parties.Or, salary them if you get rich!
The Food can be a mix of Hindu, Mexican, Pacific, Cross over. Fusion.
You want that with or without LARD?
Best bet is to buy the land/house FIRST. Find an old old house, multiple large rooms, and it must be zoned for RETAIL, and hey, a lot of BIG OLD homes are on a main drag. Then find the artisans. They each pay a small 'rent' monthly and that helps you, the producer, make the monthly house payments.
Then get the CRAIGS LIST ads out and find your artisans. Put the ads in many areas of Craigs list. ARTISTS MEETINGS, "FINANCIAL SERVICES" as it is an area where people go to manage their fortunes, to do investment Put a few ads in CREATIVE GIGS as unemployed artists are looking for work, there.
SO to get the down payment, you may have to let in twenty partners, so start an LLC or create "SHARES IN A LIMITED PARTNERSHIP, 36 shares maximum,) and sell those shares. READ PROSPECTUS, on HOW to write one. A prospectus gets one in 3 people to invest, out of the group you show it to.
