I have a specialty gift shop and also offer custom designed gift baskets and corporate gift services. I have been in business for sixteen years, and my shop is located next to my home in a rural area.
The economy in our area has been devastating, and we have had many businesses to close. We are in an area of furniture and textiles, and so many of these companies have closed leaving so many people without a job.
I have been forced to increase networking outside this general area, and try to promote my web site.
I hope to learn a lot from this forum!
