My Tiny Shop

I am in deep like with tiny houses. Admittedly I am by nature a cozy cottage girl more than a lady of the manor so it’s not a stretch for me to like these feature-packed small homes. Realistically, I could never live in one full-time with my family and their needs. But I would love to have a tiny shop that I could drive to shows.  All I would have to do is park and open the doors.  A huge benefit over the schlepping needed to setup for shows today.

I took a stab at designing the exterior of my tiny shop in Adobe Illustrator and came up with this design.  It has a French door that opens and 2 full-view windows on either side to let it tons of natural light.

For the interior all I would need built-in are a sink/wet area and some wall shelving, and some bench seating.  I would bring in some nesting tables that I can fold flat when not in use.

I have a collapsible clothing rack to display my vintage lace dress collection and will bring in my booth display items to give it the Olivia & Ruby Modern Vintage Touch.

I think tiny shops could be the next entrepreneurial wave following the mobile boutique trend we saw gain traction a few years back.

What do you think?  Could you operate your business from a tiny shop, or tiny studio, or tiny office?  Holla!

    How lovely. You could drive this around like an ice-cream truck playing spa music and stop at places for some sales. I would love to see a post about your vintage lace dress collection.

    Nice idea, I love your displays. As long as it is full of light, I can make it work.
