I've just started a new website, I thought I'd share it with the
group. It's a theatre-themed store, but since I'm a costume shop
manager, I do have some pages that are costume related.
Two of the things you may be interested in are the eBay fundraising
blog and the soon-to-be-added costume shop organization blog. I've
spent almost a decade organizing a shop with an inventory of over
30,000 costumes and will have information and tips, and comment areas
to add your own. It's geared toward community theatre costume shops,
but should have some relevant info for other shops as well.
The ebay fundraiser blog is about the fundraiser I've head up for the
last three years at our theatre here. We needed to make room in the
costume shop and I've discovered that we had some pretty valuable
items that weren't being used here. We've been auctioning them to
raise money for our general fund as well as our new renovation
project. I've had so many other local theatres and organizations ask
about how it started, what I needed to learn and how we've managed it
that I thought I'd post it to the web to help other theatres.
It's only been up for a couple of days, so there's a lot more to
come. Check it out if you think it might interest you:
