Running my own shop...

So, since I've come back from yet another extremely long hiatus, I've decided that malling is no longer for me. What with the tightening of the filters, increased time restraints to even be on Neopets, etc., I've disbanded my mall.

Now, however, I would still like to run my own shop.

I've always had this dream of one day owning my own bakery, and having a little cafe and place to read, etc.

Well, I kind of want to realize this dream of mine on Neopets, but would this be feasible?

I was planning on selling:
-coffee
-soup
-cookies
-pie
-books
-cakes
-chocolates
-healthy food

Would this be a good mix? Do you think, if advertised correctly, that this would be a good idea and a good way to earn NPs?

Sounds good to me but what about a little furniture, as most cafe's I have been in you have a table and chair to sit at Smile

I have 51 Pages of Wearable Items 4 Sale in my shop, you never know what Bargains you may find. I restock around 7 times a day.

I was just thinking that! xD

And also for seasonal things, like in the summer add in some slushies, ice cream and smoothies. And also sell some sandwiches, juices, pizzas, etc.

Yea that would be a really good idea so when a special events comes up (eg christmas, valentines, halloween) you can change the layout of the shop and the items you sell to get the customer more in the mood. I used to find these shops really appealing and i have a bigger urge to start a collection with that theme. *pokes siggie* Just have confidence and good luck

personally, i don't think it will be an NP-making machine or anything. on the other hand, if it partially realises your dream of owning a bakery and you think you'll enjoy it, then go for it. Blum 3

Thank you!

Do you think including healthy food in there is too much?
Maybe I can just run a special on a few items at a time on Healthy food.

health foods sound good. as long as you have the time, space, and resources, it doesn't hurt to stock a few more items to draw in visitors.
