Default Starting a Hobby shop business?

You have to be a good salesperson and/ or have a LOT of business already. Considering you want to START a hobby shop, I'd say you better be a good salesperson.

You need to contact them and ask to distribute their product. Then you have to convince them that you are a real store and not just someone trying to get a "wholesale" price on a plane. They may have minimums, etc.

Then you need to sell like your life depended on it. With that, some luck, and some high quality people that want to work for cheap, you might survive.

Good luck.
