My first retail sale

I am quite fascinated by the whole retail thing. Water was my first venture. And while I have only sold two bottles of water, it's amazing to me that some one paid $1 for something that cost me 25 cents. I have a hard time wrapping my brain around that.

Today my shipment of custom silkscreened knee pads arrived. They say "Pole Dancer" on them and already the girls in class are looking at the them and admiring them and saying they plan to buy a pair. Again, I'm surprised. You can buy plain knee pads with no logo online or in sporting good stores for only $12. But they're happy to pay $20 for them because they say "Pole Dancer" in their choice of red or black.

I'm beginning to wonder what else I can sell in the studio (some one mentioned Luna Bars). If I had the space, I would open a little retail corner in the studio. Although with 12 1/2 foot ceilings, maybe I could hang clothes and shoes high up on the walls where they won't interfere with wallwork.
