This week I talked to the owner of Classic Skate shop, he thought the bag was cool and a good idea but I didn't get the notion he was ready to put them on the shelves. I talked to him about consignment and he would be all for it but would want more than one to display. I explained to him that the bag was the last prototype and the next version will have a zippered pocket and removable shoulder strap. Long story short he wants to see our absolute final product. So we may have his shop on board once we run the Kickstarter.
A couple kids that were in the shop really like the toned down branding and the overall look of the bag, but no one offered to buy it.
I don't think we'll be making the $1500 by the end of May but I do think we can set our selves up to make a real business out of this by the end of May. I'm definitely feeling that our Kickstarter will be successful.
Our meeting on Monday went well,Yu-Yi and Huy's video footage and photos are looking awesome!
