I have a small boutique and i think the most important thing for me was the location and the social status of the posible customers and of course the best quality for my products.

I would like to know what kind of upfront funds that I would need to start a small boutique. The total amount would have to cover inventory, utilities, equipment and real estate. I need to know what types of boutiques have the best retail sales, to guide myself within this market.

Make sure your location is appropriate. The businesses around you should be compatible with your target customer without competing with you directly.

First of all, find an appropriate local, on a busy street, which will respect your budget. Then, paint it or decor it to match with what you'll be saling there. Also, get an appropriate name for your business. Make sure that your workers will always wear a large smile to salute each new customer.
