I have finally done it! I have landed not 1 but 2 retailers here in West Virginia!
Obviously gaining a retail location has been a goal of mine since I have been here. I have desperately needed a place to send people I meet at festivals. People, that want my products that won’t necessarily go online and order. I knew acquiring a brick and mortar spot would plump up my sales. I guess I was just waiting for the right time and the time has come, and now there are 2. Patience IS a virture.
You can now find JLLM in Bridgewalk Shop in Alderson and Otter & Oak. (You should go like their Facebook pages!)
Bridgewalk shop is a lovely Antique Shop located across the bridge in downtown Alderson. It is a lovely shop that has a variety of goods ranging from the obvious Antiques to refinished furniture, jewelry, garden plaques, and now JLLM!
Otter & Oak is located in downtown Hinton and is an Outfitter Store. They carry lots of apparel like Columbia and ExOfficio as well as footware, and they even rent Stand up paddles! Here is their website for more information about that.
So I now have Monroe county and Summers County covered. My sights are set on Raleigh and Mercer county next, and I am pretty sure I have a prospect in Greenbrier (stay tuned!!) If anybody has any leads, I need all the help I can get!
Thanks for all of your support. Without YOU reading this website post, liking my photos on Facebook or Instagram, sharing my events, going to my events, I would not be able to do what I am doing.
Supporting local businesses gives you more control of what is going on around you. You vote with your dollar and when your dollar is given to a local artist, it goes a lot further and you will see the return and lot quicker than any other way.
